About the Pub

Overlooking the Guildhall car park, which was the old cattle market, you cannot miss the large red cow on the front of this timber-framed pub. Historically, this pub was the watering hole for market traders in years gone by.

With its tiled floors and exposed beams it has a comfortable and traditional country pub ambience to it.

The menu offers traditional pub food, alongside Pie & Pint night, Friday Fish Special and a Sunday roast.

There are up to three real ales, including one usually from the Ramsgate brewery. The number and range of ales can vary according to the season.

Everyone is catered for with areas for drinkers and diners. At the back there is a pleasant sun-trap garden in which live music events are held in summer.
