Blackthorn _ left this review about Town of Ramsgate

A traditional, brick-built pub in the centre of what Wapping describes as it’s High Street, this is a long narrow pub that backs on to The Thames, although the small width means that there are only two tables directly overlooking the river. That said, the courtyard itself is a decent size and with some of the seating being elevated, you can certainly get the odd glimpse of the river or the buildings opposite from elsewhere.

Internally it’s quite traditional and fittingly perhaps has a slightly nautical feel with tartan style carpet on much of the floor and wood panelling covering much of the walls. A row of tables on the right of the pub opposite the bar counter were segregated with glazed green wood panelling, and there was further green wood panelling on the walls at the front. The pub felt light and airy with windows on two sides, ship’s lanterns providing additional lighting and cream wooden boards on the ceiling. A history of the pub was displayed on one wall, as well as a few old portrait pictures, a barometer and a few other odds and ends.

Beers on tap were Black Sheep, Harvey’s Sussex Best, Whitstable Bay and Young’s London Original, whilst the solitary cider was Cornish Orchards. Overall, with it’s jovial landlord, riverside setting as pleasant ambience I thought this was a decent pit stop and would have stayed longer if we had time.

Best in the area for me. History dripping off the walls and more of a claim to fame to some stories than the Prospect of Whitby and Captain Kidd nearby.

An incredibly good pint of Harveys Sussex Best at the second cheapest price of the evening - beaten only by Turners Old Star.

One to visit.

A long narrow pub ,with ultimately a three level beer garden which has views of the River Thames and is a good suntrap.There is a sensible glass screen to keep high tide wash from spraying customers and the quiet lapping of water is a relaxing soundtrack.
The internal decoration contains a lot of wood panelling ,a drinking area at the front but with food being popular from a pub grub menu ,you may well be seated next to diners.There are no river views from inside the pub.
The 4 handpumps were drawing Youngs Bitter,London Pride,Harvey's Sussex Best and Woodforde's Nice Try (sadly tangy).This is a decent ,traditional pub but with that ale line up,I'm unlikely to pay another visit.
