I visited again today but the Belgian Cafe, as it's now known, is looking a bit tatty. The international flags flying outside are in tatters and some of the inside lamps have blown bulbs. I hope they don't let things slide too far. There's Bohemian and there's grubby. The Rochefort 8 at 5.20 was taking the piss.

To carry on from below. The bar has a continental feel to it which is what I believe Eddie Gadd was aiming for. Tables and chairs outside and inside a very laid back Bohemian feel to the place which is larger inside than I expected.

Next door is a tremendous fish and chip restaurant which does not serve alcoholic drinks. However I have it on good authority that they will let a customer go into the Harbour Brewhouse to purchase a drink and then bring it into the restaurant.

Like previous reviwers I wish Eddie Gadd still brewed on the premises but I guess he outgrew the place as the beers increased in popularity.
I was surprised and disappointed to find no Gadd's beers being served the last time I visited.
However there were plenty of bottled Belgian beers available some at dangerous percentages!

My favourite Ramsgate pub - isn't it now called the Belgian Bar or something like that? It's a great shame that Gadd's beer is no longer brewed on the premises as they are exceptionally good beers. Lots of Belgian beers on sale (for a price) and the food is pretty good too. A nice atmosphere.

This is your best best for decent beer if you're arriving in Ramsgate by boat and don't want to walk any distance. It's the grey castellated building on the right hand side, facing the town on your way in to the harbour.
If you're from the European mainland (what the English like to call the "Continent", as thought they lived on some oil rig instead of half an island), you will find some good Belgian beers with which you may be familiar. Be prepared to be shocked by the prices -the English have a "thing" about alcohol, like the Norwogs but without the ability to spend the revenue raised from the alcohol tax on decent public services.
If you want to go further, go up the staircase on the left side of the harbour and find the Foy Boat, Artillery Arms and Churchill (featured on this site).
There's a Weatherspoons knockoff in Harbour Street if you are minding a boat, are short of money and want to drink lots of cheap real ale from some boring brewery. (This pub is not yet on site, and I forget the name).
Be careful about going further into the town centre, especially in the evenings! The town is competing for a top place in the "South East England Incest & Kiddy-Diddling League" (info from Social Services), and some of the locals have a habit of ripping the bark off their trees and attacking anyone who looks foreign, gay or too well dressed. Be warned.
