Ale was off, complained to the barstaff and they told me thats the taste of the beer and walked to the other side...
Would say to management, get your acto togheter or walk off.

Went in there on a Friday about 10 PM.
About 15 people were in and had a very good pint of Bombardier.

Something I can't understand at Ramsgate is that if you don't serve food, well then put the blackboard outside back in and store it somewhere.
The board was still out while the tables were cleared.

Youngs bitter on draught. Not many people in and the service was friendly.
The foodmenu seems to be cheap for Ramsgate.

Perhaps it will attract some more people from the soon to be open Travelodge outlet just across the road.

It's closed again since 20 September, its up for sale again.
Apperently they sold all their beer at 1.50 a pint the last days of opening...

It's re-opened. I popped in after finding that Harveys next door had closed down. No sign of the 5-millionaires or much else for that matter.

It was early evening on Bank Holiday Monday, and the lass behind the bar was talikng to a couple sitting at the bar. In a corner by a window sat a couple having a meal. They must have felt like goldfish sitting in a bowl.

I was served in a prompt and friendly manner with a half of Ruddles which was in good condition. I did not risk a pint, lest I lost the will to live!

I hope for their sake that their trade picks up, or Jackson's Wharf will just be another statistic amongst the increasing number of pubs that have gone to the wall in recent times.

No 5-millionaires in sight, which was a blessing, so 4/10.

It's closed down - I suppose all the 5-millionaires now pile into Miles' Bar ( "Cafe Culture" ). I've seen more culture in a Petri dish!

There's no other way to say it, this place is an absolute joke of a 'pub'. As the earl mentioned this place feels like it should be situated in St Tropez not ramsgate.
First came here a couple of years back and it was perfectly adequate, Hoegarden was good and they had a fantastic Malt Whisky menu. Went in here a few weeks back, was forced to drink John Smiths and when I enquired about their malt whiskies, I was offered Bells.....
This alone is bad enough, but coupled with the exceptionally high prices, very uncormfortable seating and crappy clientele, this is just not a very nice place to be.

The perfect venue for 5-millionaires, and the Good Lord knows that there are no shortage of them skulking around the picturesque harbour area. This is Ramsgate, not St Tropez.

As The Crown, it used to be an excellent pub, full of locals, yachtsmen and truck drivers awaiting the ferry, and everyone used to grub along very nicely.

Hey-ho! Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Bit of a trendy bar. Well decorated but a little cosmopolitan for my taste. Also, as pointed out previously, no ale any more so I don't bother with the place now.
Great place to go and show off your new Rolex, though.

er, had lunch there the other day. No ale anymore (they used to carry GK IPA which was quite nice) which isn't a good start. Guinness was nice. Battered fish was dreadful.

Jackson's Wharf used to be known as the Crown until about 5 years ago when it underwent an element of modernising. The pub is now more a pub, cafe & restaurant with a friendly and relaxing atmosphere and has recently been transformed into one of Ramsgate’s best places for unch and dinner - it is very busy weekdays and bookings for its restauarnt, CTEleven, in the evening is a good idea.With a lively main bar and a new separated (no-smoking) restaurant, you can choose where you want to eat, drink & relax. I particulary enjoyed their range of gourmet coffees or speciality teas, or if you fancy something a little stronger, why not try the Hoegaarden White Beer or one of their many great value wines and over, I beleive, 36 specialist whiskies, bourbons and rums.the bar menu offers a good selection of tasty snacks whilst the restaurant offers a new range of dishes which cater for those who enjoy fresh, well-balance cuisine. Their menu changes every few weeks so there is always offer something different.
