Tucked away behind Ramsgate’s Eastcliff, The Monty is a true, old fashioned backstreet pub that has been serving the local community for many generations. A 20 ft mahogany bar top dominates the Public Bar area (don’t be put off – the conversation at the bar will be interesting, often informative, and always friendly) and extends into the carpeted saloon, sharing this space with a tabled area (the tables are 70s retro chic, but they have been here since the 70s). The Ladies Darts Team dominates here on a Thursday evening – they’re a raucous bunch, providing much entertainment, and have also been here since the 70’s.The Snug sits at the back, behind the bar, and is perfect for those board meetings. Follow the corridors round and you’ll find the Pool Room at the back of the property, complete with a bar billiards table, and a couple of spiffing paintings by our own David Ridgway.The Monty operates on limited opening hours and has a distinct rhythm to the week depending upon the day & time. It’s up to you to discover what that is, but I will let you know that Sunday Lunchtime is a bit special, and more than a little busy.We don’t dance much, and we only sing late Sunday Lunchtime. We only do sport on a Saturday afternoon and we almost never do food. We have no fruit machines and we sell no flavoured vodka. But we’re friendly, we talk, we laugh and we drink great beer together.
We believe well brewed, fresh cask beer, directly delivered and quickly consumed, tastes sublime, and that’s what we bring you.Gadds’ Number 7 is the house beer and always available – we sell a lot of this. More Gadds’ beers are, more often than not, available too. And we stock guest beers from our favourite brewers, including (in no particular order) Burning Sky, Tiny Rebel, Dark Star, Sambrook’s and XT.
At the moment we have two keg lines, serving Gadds’ Überhop and a guest. Greenhop export will be available late September….
Gadds’ bottled ales are complimented by Westerham’s range of gluten free ales.
