A fleeting visit after a work meal out. Fleeting because I thought others were coming but it appeared to me they'd got the taxi home instead.

Early afternoon visit just a couple of other customers present. What a great place. As a confirmed bookworm, I was so engrossed with the shelves of books and the pile that I had accumulated on my table that I nearly forgot to drink my beer.
Goacher's - Real Mild Ale3.40AcceptableVery dark, caramel-flavoured, hop-free mild. Not in the greatest condition here if truth be told.

Evening. Good chat and banter with some locals all of whom supported London football clubs. Seemed dingy and work in progress inside (probably always will too).

First visit here on my whistle stop of Broadstairs. I liked it. Stood chatting to Blair about beer Italy and gin The gin selection is amazing with Martin Millers the stand out so far
Old Dairy - Gold Top4.30GoodCooler temp than at Four Candles but naybe not quite as hoppy. Arh the joys of cask beer.

2nd visit after mulling over the first one. I concluded that the difficulty I had with the pub was its clutter and, to my mind, its disorganisation having nowhere to really stand at the bar nor any other clear focal point. This does not engender a peace of mind - it is a house style as I feel that way in the sister pub The Lifeboat too. Nevertheless a small bar emphasising local beers on gravity stillage is a welcome addition to Broadstairs's profile.
Old Dairy - Gold Top4.30ExcellentMaybe my buds but not quite the finesse of the earlier pint

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 1LX.

Formerly the Albion bookshop this is now converted to a pub. From the same stable as The Lifeboat in Margate. Real ales on gravity stillage and ciders in boxes. When first opened this was served from behind a trestle table bar by the stepped entrance but this was subsequently converted to an L-shaped rough plywood bar counter. At the time of opening the venue remained a bookshop too with all books marked for sale. Drinking on several levels.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 24 different beers and tried 13 of them.
