The Lifeboat, Margate

Ive given this an 8. We have visited this pub many times in the evening and love the old fashioned atmosphere. its quite dark and dingy with sawdust on the floor. Some tables out the back past the wall divider of ale are in front of the real fire and near the toilets and kitchen. Tables and bar at the front overlook the town square. Personally I think they should rearrange the back so its slightly less 'communal' but thats my personal taste

They serve changing local ciders and Ales, a really good selection and will suggest something if you say 'oh I like this sort of flavour'.

However, I agree with one of the reviews on here, the service is dreadful. I suppose its part of the charm in that its slightly eccentric and chaotic but it doesnt make you feel welcome, especially when you get the impression that everyone else knows everyone in there and you're standing there like a lemon waiting to be served or waiting to pay.

The food looks really good but as I overheard someone say one night in there, it seems to take ages to come out, so again chaos seems to reign.

We will continue to visit as for us the selection of ale and cider and the ambiance out do the small gripes about service.

The Montefiore Arms, Ramsgate

We visited here this evening, very quiet but engaging pub. Strangely authentic but a real 'local'. Friendly owner (I assume), relaxed atmosphere, real ale (we had screeching owl and Lancaster blonde), clean, tidy with some formica tables. Older clientel, no chavs, which is always a bonus. We will visit again.

The Churchill Tavern, Ramsgate

We visited last night and drank Pearl of Kent from The Whitstable Brewery which we really liked. There were others on offer but we didnt try them but there seemed a good choice.

The pub itself felt very nice, airy but also traditional feel. We sat at the window seats in the pool section looking out over the sea. Their food menu looked attractive but we were not eating so cant comment on that.

There were a selection of clients, some families, older couples and groups but it felt comfortable and friendly. We were there fairly early so I dont know if it stays like this through the evening.
