Ripple Steam Piston Broke, Gadds#5, Wantsum One Hop & Welton Old Cocky amongst the beers available on my last visit.
I had the Wantsum and the Ripple Steam both of which were fine which was a relief as I had heard reports the ales were not as well kept as they had been.

Love sitting here looking at the view over the harbour and Pegwell Bay. I guess the place gets a lot busier in the evenings with live music available.
I remember when the place was called Van Goghs and was very lively!

Didn't try the food. Maybe next time!

nicely decorated pub, with a lot of wood, smells a little like a church because of this. Have eaten here a few times and can say it does excellent food, the beer battered cod and chips takes some beating and this is not nouveau cuisine size protions. Good selection of beers and lagers as well as large selection of wines, something for everyone here, along with the views of the harbour, I find this a very pleasant pub I will be revisiting often.

I remember this place when it was the Van Gogh!

I always visit here when I return to Ramsgate. Along with the Artillery Arms just round the corner it makes a fine real ale pub double.
Possibly not as friendly as the Artillery the view across the harbour makes up for it.

The beers available on my recent visit included Dark Star Hophead (which was excellent), Canterbury Ales Knights Tale and New Zealand Pale Ale from the same brewery and Whitstable Pearl of Kent.

Quite a mix of customers, I was tempted by the food many of them were getting stuck into but managed to resist as I was intending to eat later. Next time maybe!

First pub of 4 on my recent trip to Ramsgate. All 4 pubs sought out via conversations with Camra members, keen drinkers and from the 2013 Beer Guide.

Large pub, kitchen, tea room situated just above the ferry terminal. Wooden floorboards and comfy sofas are the order of the day here.

The food looked blinking good especially for the price and was much discussed at by me and my group during our time here.

4 pumps offering beer from Skinners, Tring, Dark Star and Gadds (local Ramsgate brewery). I had 2 pints of Gadds Common Conspiracy and a pint from the Tring brewery and all were good. Also on tap were Ruddles and GK IPA aswell as 2 ciders, 1 from Thatcher's and the other a super strength offering from Bibbendum., which was completely transparent but very dry.

A decent pub for a few beers my only compliant being the waiting time at the bar while various women and children were served their coffee's and hot chocolate.

Still worth a visit however and a decent place for good quality ales.

Arrived to very loud music early in the evening. There was a band playing. The two girls actually had good voices but as is often the case were completely out maneuvered by the instrument players. Employ someone to mix for you girls!! The chap playing bass guitar should of had the strings removed, then he would have sounded fine! ;-) We escaped to the very back which was strictly reserved for diners, of which ther were none at the time. The staff were very happy for us to do so.The band gave up the ghost at 7.30 so we lingered on. Glad we did. Tremendous ales on the pumps. Service was very friendly and the people behind the bar quite knowledgeable. This is a place in good hands and will return any time I am in this area. For ale drinkers I highly recommend it. Lovely!
