Customer Reviews

The Town of Ramsgate has got to be my (and my husband's) favorite pub in the area ( if not in all of London). Fabulous food, ambiance, and the friendliest of staff!


A lovely, welcoming, cosy pub with helpful staff that greet you with a smile, a brilliant river view and terrace for those warm summer days, and just generally a chilled-out and friendly place to relax and enjoy a beer.


I think this is my new favorite pub. Staff are super friendly. Food is delicious. I wish this pub was my local so I could visit more often!

Important Notice - Children

We have recently changed our alcohol licence holder as part of our lease assignment procedures (don’t worry we are still run by the same family but with different legal entities and a different premises supervisor)

During the process, our legal team highlighted Annex 2 Condition 3 of our licence that reads “children accompanied by an adult to be allowed on the terraced area only”.

We have been taken by surprise by it as we didn’t notice such condition in our previous documentation. We believe the Town of Ramsgate should, as it has been in the past, be welcoming families and we absolutely love well behaved children like yours to be allowed in the pub and to enjoy some good food with their family.

We are therefore working with our legal team to apply for a variation of this condition as it is extremely outdated now that the pub is partly food-led, As soon as we can obtain such variation, we will advertise it Until then we are obliged by law to follow such condition. Please bear with us, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back indoors very soon Please don’t be angry with us and especially with our team members, we are crying hard to put it right as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch by emailing bruno@townoframsgate.pub
