I write this as a nightlife tip, although in the interests of fair reporting, I have not been here at night. I don't normally spend a lot of time in Ramsgate at night, preferring nearby Broadstairs where I have many friends. I did, however, wander into the Royal on an August Bank Holiday Monday afternoon when they had live music on, and very decent live music at that.
I know this place tends to attract a younger crowd normally, especially at the weekends, although the crowd here was more mature and undoubtedly less boisterous. A fairly accomplished band knocked out a mixture of rock and 80's pop well presented and even had the grace to accept a request for a song. I had never seen them before but I would certainly go to watch them again.
The venue is one of the Thorley chain so ubiquitous in East Kent and is a modernly decorated, fairly minimalist sort of place. Service was quick and friendly and I passed a very pleasant while there having a couple of pints and listening to some well-rehearsed tunes.
Admission was free and the place appears to be wheelchair friendly for mobility impaired visitors.
Dress Code: When I visited, none apparent, although I believe it is smart casual at night. Avoid training shoes.
