The Dog and Bull, Croydon

Old fashioned boozer set in the market area. Nice feel/decor/garden, but prices out of kilter with the area.

Prince Albert, Broadstairs

Large High St pub, with a traditional air to it. Spoilt by clientele and landlord. Never have I so regretted a visit to a pub.

Neptunes Hall, Broadstairs

Sheps pub with an old fashioned charm, ie basic but wholesome. Not a fan of the landlord or the beer.

13 Aug 2015 13:32

The Dolphin Inn, Broadstairs

I quite like it during the day-locals and students/visitors mingle easily. Has a reputation for trouble on weekend evenings.

13 Aug 2015 13:26

Cramptons, Broadstairs

Bar/nightclub. It is what it is.

13 Aug 2015 13:23

The Charles Dickens, Broadstairs

Seafront bar/restaurant. Quite smart, so probably justifies high prices.

13 Aug 2015 13:21

The Bradstow Mill, Broadstairs

Lively locals pub near the station. For a seaside town, I find it a bit dark and dingy. Thorley pub, so expensive.

Sovereign, Ramsgate

Cleaner now. Tries to mimic Wetherspoons, but if they open around the corner this place will have to up it's game.

The Red Lion, Ramsgate

Rough, noisy and grimy. And that is just the clientele. Ale said to be well served, but expensive.

12 Aug 2015 14:33

Queens Head, Ramsgate

Thorley pub on harbour. Great decor, high prices.

12 Aug 2015 14:29

Earl St Vincent, Ramsgate

Back street boozer, not as rough as some.

12 Aug 2015 14:26

Bedford Inn, Ramsgate

Old fashioned pub, without much in the way of real ale. Try hard with a happy hour and cheap meals. Nothing special, but a step up from chain pubs and King Street. Has a certain camp quality.

12 Aug 2015 14:23

The Artillery Arms, Ramsgate

Nice old fashioned boozer, lots of real ale, but how many smug old soaks can you get in one small pub?

12 Aug 2015 14:17

Yates's, Margate

Now called The Gallery.

11 Aug 2015 11:07

The Wheatsheaf, Margate

Greene King Hungry Horse-need I say more?

11 Aug 2015 11:05

The Waverley, Margate

Now Morgans, a cafe/bar with a dance floor.

11 Aug 2015 11:02

Victoria, Margate

Now a curry house.

11 Aug 2015 11:00

The Sheldons, Margate

Now called The Gallery. Bright and airy bar/eatery daytimes with good drinks offers, club at weekends.

11 Aug 2015 10:59

The Promenade, Margate

Brewers Fayre restauant, now with buffet offering, Premier Inn next door. Not sure it can be judged as a pub.

11 Aug 2015 10:52

Princess of Wales, Margate

Friendly local Sheps pub, with two bars and a pool table.

11 Aug 2015 10:46

The Orb Inn, Margate

Sheps pub on a busy road, but recently renovated. Car park and garden.

11 Aug 2015 10:44

The Northern Belle, Margate

New landlord but hopefully not much else will change at this quaint back street Sheps pub.

11 Aug 2015 10:41

Mechanical Elephant, Margate

Fairly typical Wetherspoons, with the upstairs bar better for families/food/seaview.

11 Aug 2015 10:38

The Lifeboat, Margate

I think this was one of the first micropubs in Thanet, still selling real ales and cider from stillages. Now serve local food, which upsets some traditionalists.

11 Aug 2015 10:34

The Flag and Whistle, Margate

Said to have recently re-opened, probably as a micropub with a new name.

11 Aug 2015 10:28

Everybodys Inn, Margate

Friendly local pub, near Theatre Royal. Said to be closed for refurb pre reverting to old name of London Tavern. Some bikers.

11 Aug 2015 10:24

The Barnacles, Margate

Typical Thorley pub-nice feel but expensive.

11 Aug 2015 10:21

The Duke Of Marlborough, Maidstone

Rough and ready locals pub with good landlord/lady.

11 Aug 2015 10:19

The Duke of Edinburgh, Maidstone

Quite a smart Sheps pub, with a petanque pitch.

11 Aug 2015 10:17

The Druids Arms, Maidstone

Much improved Greene King pub, with even the gents now presentable. Ever reliable Ron remains behind the bar daytimes.

11 Aug 2015 10:14

Drakes, Maidstone

I believe this is still closed following extensive flooding. Was a large ale house popular with students.

11 Aug 2015 10:11

The Dragoon, Maidstone

Sheps pub on outskirts of town. Real ale fans tend to go the extra 5 mins to the Flower Pot, so this remains quite a basic locals pub, with pool, darts and Sky sports.

11 Aug 2015 10:07

The Dog and Gun, Maidstone

Popular locals pub with good reputation for it's Sheps led ales.

11 Aug 2015 10:03

The Crafty Alehouse, Maidstone

I think this is Maidstone's first micro pub, opened in cafe premises on the ever busy Earl Street. Not visited yet so no score given.

11 Aug 2015 09:59

Chiltern Hundreds, Maidstone

Food led pub, quite smart.

11 Aug 2015 09:55

The Cherry Tree, Maidstone

Busy locals pub, lots of darts, pool and sports TV.

The Bower Inn, Maidstone

Much improved but still fairly basic.

11 Aug 2015 09:50

Ashes, Maidstone

Town centre sports bar.

The Admiral Gordon, Maidstone

Friendly old fashioned local with 2 separate bars.

11 Aug 2015 09:45

Quite a pub-by feel to this Wetherspons, even allowing standing at the bar.
