user reviews of the Hovelling Boat Inn, Ramsgate

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

Another visit and enjoyed a great pint of Hanlons New Moon. Old Dairy Gold Top and Gadds Black Pearl were also on.

Like most micros it was lively and friendly with quite a turn over of drinkers. This could be as the pub is fairly central in the town.

Another excellent micropub with perhaps not quite as much atmosphere as some. Four real ales and four cider/perrys and cheese plattters. If walking from the station allow 20 minutes down and 25 up. I had a stout which was superb.

More lively than some micro pubs though the beer quality wasn't as good as a few I've been to.
The Oakley gold ale was the best on offer.
The staff were friendly and very outgoing making every effort to make customers feel at home.
There was quite a turnover of drinkers in the 90 mins or so I was there. Most seemed to be regulars and there was much chatter and gossip between them and the staff.
Will definitely visit again on my next visit to Ramsgate.

This looks and feels as good as most of these micro pubs, however you can get lulled into a false sense of security, 1) I ordered a pint - normally only get a half until I trust a place. 2) thinking they would know what they were talking about, I ordered a “traditional bitter” (as chalked up on the wall) and got a horrible smoky porter, I question this with the battleaxe in charge and she argued with me whilst admitting “a lot of people have said that”, she then says “you should have had a taste”. I didn't want to make a fuss in a small cosy room so left the pint and got out quickly, a very unpleasant experience, 9/10 for micro pubs looks, 0/10 for service, 0/10 ale - I'm not a fan this type of bitter, but it was poor, maybe she saw the opportunity to get rid of stale stock on a stranger.

A really excellent little alehouse with four real ales. Few vacant seats when we arrived on Saturday evening and a nice buzz of people chatting. No bar so waitress (barmaid) service. Seating outside at the rear with an excellent petanque square to watch others at play. A local beer (Gadds?) would have been nice.
