Early evening visit, my first here after walking straight past it on first pass. Friendly west Kent couple run it with enthusiasm for the real ale and cider scene. Micropub style but the size and layout do not fertilize cross-table conversations with strangers as much as some other micropubs.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - She Sells Sea Shells4.70GoodGood flavour and condition but loses a mark for being too chilled
Northdown - Papworth Victory Best Bitter4.20Not Tried

First visit and a few in. Lots of plans for music nights. 2 real ales on at £3.50 a pint for low gravity bees, more than the average in Broadstairs micros.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Spread of Democracy5.30GoodThis was on key Keg. A stout similar to Guinness. Very popular at £4, but served ice cold. Nice beer but marked down for extreme temp.
