After 3 weeks in Tenerife drinking Dorado and San Miguel I had got sick of lagers. So on my first day back and with my shopping in the boot it was to the first pub I found for a proper beer. Open 10 minutes and with a magnificent free chilli a pint was in order. 3 beers on and 3 to come. All in pins.
Wantsum - Ravening Wolf5.90GoodAt £4.30 a pint, a little different to the 2 euro Dorada I was used to, this went down a treat with the lovely chilli.

11 people in at 2pm on a Wednesday. Not bad for a small micro. At least 5 beers on, some in boxes some on draught. Lots of wantsum on and 3 coming soon.
Wantsum - Hengist5.00ExcellentOn draught and in good condition and temperature.
Wantsum - Ravening Wolf5.90ExcellentFresh on and quality beer. I believe that some of the handpump beers are in pins so more beers more regularly. Makes sense.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Ramsgate, Kent, CT12 6SG.

Micropub in Margate Road, a long time in the planning, in the Northwood area of the town near to the Hare & Hounds pub, which had been on the cards since summer 2015. Conversion from offices, planning permission refused. Re-application in early 2016 resulted in permission granted but without the previously applied for drinking area in the front forecourt. Opened Thursday 21st April 2016. Cask ales and ciders served on gravity dispense from a temperature controlled stillage cabinet behind an L-shaped bar counter. The NauticAles beer sold here is brewed at Four Candles Brewery at St Peter's. Closed mid-July 2022 - there is talk of someone else taking it over (last said January 2023). Re-opened Saturday 17th June 2023 with new owners and a new name. Now serving cask ales through 3 handpumps on bar counter and from casks on gravity dispense in a rear chilled cabinet.

We have visited this pub 30 times, seen 40 different beers and tried 33 of them.
