Changed name from "Maguires" at the end of 2014, I believe.

This also houses the off license attached called the "Cap and Cork Bottle Shop."


From the Dover Mercury, 24 May 2017.

Micropub has licence taken away.

A micropub has been shut down for serving drinks too late.

Police visited the Ravensgate Arms in Ramsgate in March where officers found it was trading three hours later than its licence allowed.

When officers revisited the King Street site a week later the free house was also found to be showing unregulated entertainment and was still open outside of regulations.

A licensing sub-committee of Thanet council reviewed the pub’s licence this week and decided to revoke it.

This will mean closure unless the business challenges the decision within 21 days of the hearing.

PC Darren Dennett said: “A licence should be fully supported and followed and in this case it was not.

“There was no urgency to resolve the breaches and as a result this pub has lost its licence.”

“Kent Police will not tolerate irresponsible drinking, which can lead to crime and anti-social behaviour.

“The public can be reassured that officers will continuously monitor licensed premises in the area.”

A Thanet District Council spokesman said: “The Ravensgate Arms has a strong community following in Ramsgate and it is regrettable that the actions of the licence holders have led to this outcome.

“However, we remain open to working with the owners and licensees to offer advice and support.

“Together with Kent Police, the council works hard to ensure licence conditions for premises across Thanet are adhered to in order to prevent instances of public nuisance, crime and disorder, and to protect public safety.

“Any breaches in these conditions are taken very seriously.”


I believe after the above hick-up, the micro is again operating.
