user reviews of The Great Tree, Ramsgate

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

The flamboyant owner and her husband make this a good place to visit and are very welcoming to strangers, I spent a couple of hours here and felt like I'd been coming here for years.

It is a strange pub however, there were 4 ales on tap and the 2 I had were decent. Also a large array of boxed ciders with a choice for all tastes & strengths. There was a Chinese take away menu on the table we sat at and the owners husband informed me the food was good and that they knew the pub and would deliver no problem. He added that we were welcome to order food to eat there with our beers which we duly did. We missed 2 trains back to London will we waited for the delivery and then ate our food which was very good. A great idea for people that don’t want to eat the food being served in the pub (meatloaf i believe was on offer).

A large selection of electric items on display mixed with the mad chair coverings and wall paintings / artwork give the pub a very quirky feel.

Touching on the atmosphere it was a bit flat but music was playing at a reasonable level and the bar staff, owner and other regulars were very accommodating that it is now a place on my Ramsgate watering hole map.

While the owner has this pub you must make a visit as I'm sure it's pretty much a pub like no other.

They have a nice selection of real ales and the landlord is very friendly. It missed atmosphere though didn't feel like I was in a pub.

With the surrounding pubs not doing real ale they are actually in a niche market and first stop place when arriving at Ramsgate station.

Prior to the new landlords coming to the pub, this pub was really at the low-end of many things. It is now what I can only describe as confusing. It has a similar feel to the Belgian Bar on the seafront but without the extortionate prices. I came by on a quiet cold night where the other pub I visited was empty - it was shortly after Xmas, so the atmosphere was a little flat.
The reason why I like this pub because it is an ale pub, it was well-priced, the locals are those you can have a good discussion with and it is quirky.
On the negative, it could have felt a little more comfortable - but I would say it was like the odd pubs you might find on the continent. It definately ain't English in it's inspiration. It's definately worth giving it a shout.

I like wierd, and I like quirky. I like food, and I like ale. So this place should work well.
Certainly, I have always been made to feel welcome by the operatic landlady - but the clientele is limited to the same very small clique of "characters" each time I go there.
Through no fault of the hosts then, it has lacked atmosphere on the times I have popped in. Maybe more obscure choices of ale would lead to a more eclectic bunch of folk, or perhaps I've just not times my visits well.
I do like it though, and will keep popping in, hoping that it becomes one of the new gems of Ramsgate - it has many of the right ingredients.
The sign on the outside of the pub is absolutely awful though.
