user reviews of the Wheel Alehouse, Birchington

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

First stop on a tour of Kent's pubs was this micropub on Birchington's main shopping street. The interior is typical micropub, albeit slightly on the worn side. Locals were friendly though and they were happy to engage in conversation. The Isla Vale Alesmiths Bosun's Bitter is the regular ale. Guests were Mighty Oak Kings & Ilkley Fireside. There were also 7 ciders - Biddenden's Bushels, Red Love & Monk's Delight & Dudda's Tun Pear O'Duddas, Cheery Old Dudda, Blackcurrant Cider & Apricot Cider. This was a good start to the day and we moved on from here to another micropub in the Minnis Bay area of town. That was the Old Bay Alehouse, which I request to be added to the site.

A day of ticking and football in then Margate area starts with this nautical themed micro pub in Birchington.

When I say this is nautical themed I mean the walls are covered in nautical memorabilia….lots and lots of it!

5 ales on the blackboard of which only 3 were on during my Saturday lunchtime visit. Also 3 ciders served direct from cask. I opted for pints of Isla Vale Bosun's Best @ 4.2% and Maldon's Lemon Adder @ 4.0%. The other choice was Bridgestone's Vanilla Porter @ 4.6%. All ales priced at £3.00 per pint

Amazing number of pump clips on the walls, there's also a chalk board above the door to the "beer room" that states they have served 537 different ales since 11th March 2013. The “Beer room” I refer to is where the beers are served direct from the cask from a temperature controlled stillage room

This converted shop is like a front room and is obviously a much welcome addition to the local drinking scene. Nice friendly locals and owner…even though he does support Coventry City!

Barrels for tables help utilise the space. Upstairs to the toilets and additional seating.

This is cracking place and a good start to the day.
