About the Pub

This hospitable community pub was built in 1951 and was first called the 'Hope and Anchor', after its namesake in Margate High Street was demolished. In 1983 the interior was restyled on the open lounge model, which resulted in the removal of the Off Licence section. The pub was also renamed to the Thomas Telford, to commemorate the famous Scottish civil engineer who had worked on a drainage scheme in Ramsgate in the 18th century. The pub was further renamed in the 80s, when it became part of the Thorley empire, to its present name after the jockey, Lester Piggett.
