Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Rack of Ale

Hardly a large room, but the absence of a bar counter means there is a little more seating than one might expect. Fairly plainly furnished and decorated, with the main feature being a large mural of Dover Castle in silhouette. The interior signage indicated four real ales and a similar number of draught ciders were on offer, and my pint of something from Wantsum described as "medium light hoppy" (£3.00) was on good form. Friendly welcome too, so well worth seeking out.

The last micro pub of the day and the last pub before kick off at Dover Athletic. I must admit I was slightly micro pubbed out by the time we got here and therefore this very short review will reflect that.

4 ales and a good number of ciders on, the ale choice wasn’t that inspiring so I went for a pint of Classic IPA @ 4.5% from the Ripple brewery, the ale was fine and so was the atmosphere.

The front seating area is quite small and again beers are brought from the back, this also where the toilets are located and a further seating area but it’s a bit like a kitchen.

Again only stopped for one before heading to the ground.

Dover's first micropub, two rooms, the back one has comfy seats while the front is the typical micro wooden Spartan style. A warm welcome and friendly chat complemented the excellent beers. Lymestone Stone the Crows plus Mauldon's Lemon Adder and Ripple Steam Best Bitter were all in perfect condition. No cider on when we visited, but apparently it is sometimes available. No food, no electronic distractions, just a really good alehouse. Nice rack, worth keeping abreast of.
