user reviews of Brown Jug Inn, Broadstairs

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This rare pub lives in a time warp. Decades ago. Like having a drink in some mad old relative's house with clutter all about. Atmospheric and very different. The beer has always been okay, lager too, and the wine is apparently rather good, so I've heard. Prices always seem to be on the cheap side, and the landlady fits the place perfectly. Can't add more than what the previous entry said. See it before it disappears.

We visited this pub on Easter Sunday, after finding the nearby Red Lion too noisy (very loud music) and the White Swan in Reading Street shut.

We pulled up at the Brown Jug, not having been there before. We tried the front door and received the sound of a barking dog, thinking it was shut because the light was off, we started to leave but someone popped their head out the door and said that she was in fact open.

We realised that in fact, the main entrance to the pub is round the back (using the side gate opposite the car park in the road).

Having finally got into this pub, we found it extremely eccentric, trinkets and ornaments around the room, a bit like a aunty's front room. The landlady is very friendly. Open coal fire, bits and bobs everywhere (pair of flip flops near the doorway??), lots of piles of books, papers, board games. Walls covered in local art, curios, historical pictures.
There is a completely mad clock which times the hour with a twinkly song for some reason. There appeared to be still Christmas decs hanging around.

Beers limited, nuts were out of date, so got them for free! We love this pub, they apparently have quiz nights on a Tuesday, plus irregular fun quizzes every so often (landlady took our number to rope us in), boules on a Sunday afternoon in the garden and crib nights.

This is the sort of pub that is a blast from the past and which if you're looking for an antidote to something like a Wetherspoons, this is the place for you.

Dog friendly too.
