5 of us in and well spaced out. First beer in 10 days preparing for my liver scan. Last year the doc told me my liver was miles better than his. Lol. On the way to Margate for my birthday mealonly 9 months late.

Mid evening visit. Just a couple of topers upstairs at the bar. Odd choice to find Sambrook's stuff with such great Kentish around.

Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Black Pearl Oyster Stout6.20GoodNew entry to gbg. Good pint that needed a top up.

Early evening much more welcoming and civilised atmosphere compared to the Four Candles, busy around the bar area we sat at one of the many tables free at the entrance level. Start of Folk Week hence beers in plastic cups, the only pub noted to do so today.

Oakham - Endless Summer3.40ExcellentDry citrus fruits combined with a hoppy peppery kick made for a flavoursome complex experience.

Cask ales and ciders / perries sold on gravity dispense from a chilled cabinet on the upper level behind a bar counter. The lower level has tables and chairs with a couple of settees in the bay window. Operated by the same people that have an interest in the nearby award winning Yard of Ale. Railway themed including interest adorning the walls and a real length of mainline rail acting as a foot rail at the bar counter upstairs. Thanet CAMRA branch Cider Pub of the Year 2017.
