Lovely atmosphere sat outside in the sunshine. Friendly staff and lovely cider. Only downside is the toilets are disgusting so we couldn’t stay for very long before we had to find a loo!

Really friendly atmosphere with warm community feel.... Fab views from to harbour across to Margate esplanade... 2 mins ish walk from The Turner Contempory. Oh and the beer is not too shabby! Perfect on a warm summer evening.
