Mild Weather!

As most of you will know, May is CAMRA's "Mild Month" and, as usual, we will have a few examples of this classic beer style available at the Conqueror during the month. Prescott "Spring Season's Best", a malty 3.8% mild with a hint of chocolate, should be on by the weeekend.

Dreaded Lurgy!

I'm afraid the Conqueror will be closed this evening (Tuesday 16 April) due to illness. Hope to be open again tomorrow. Sorry for any inconvenience (that's such an appropriate word at the moment!)

Work starts tomorrow on the new roof garden at the Conqueror. This will involve the installation of a spiral staircase in the corner furthest from the door and the laying of astroturf on the roof itself. There will, hopefully, be room for four tables, plus a patio heater for when it gets chilly later in the evenings. Drinks can be ordered by speaking tube and served via a dumb waiter, negating the need to keep running up and down the stairs. I hope to have this all up and running by the time the weather improves which, judging by the way it's looking, should be sometime in 2017.

Chocs Away!

We currently have Foundryman's Gold from the Foundry Brewery, Westerham British Bulldog and the amazing Triple Chocoholic Stout from Saltaire, which tastes like someone's pureed a box of Terry's All Gold - stunning!

Big congrats to the Ramsgate Brewery for winning Best Kentish Beer at the Taste of Kent Awards with Gadds' No.3.

Competitive speedway racing returns to Kent this coming summer, in the shape of the Kent "Kings", who will be based at Central Park, Sittingbourne.

The opening meeting, against a USA touring team, will be on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May with tapes up at 3pm.

The presentation of the Pub of the Year certificate will take place on Friday 29th March at 4pm at the Winter Gardens.

Saturday, 9 March 2013


As most of you will know, The Conqueror was runner-up in the CAMRA National Pub of the Year Competition. A certificate will be presented at the Planet Thanet Easter Beer Festival at Margate's Winter Gardens and I'll advise which day and time nearer the event.

Current beers are Gadds' No.7, Whitstable Oyster Stout and Potbelly Crazy Daze.

Don't Forget!

The Conqueror will be closed from tomorrow (10th Feb) and will re-open on Tuesday 19th Feb with a nice new toilet floor. As the beer stocks are being run down prior to closure, there may not be much of a selection this evening but whatever we have left will be in tip-top condition!

The Beeb!

Wednesday, 9 January 2013


Please note that the Conqueror will be closed from Sunday 10th February to Monday 18th February 2013 INCLUSIVE. This is to enable some necessary improvements to the toilet floor to be carried out. I am tempted to say "sorry for the inconvenience" but, as life is not a Carry On film, I shall refrain.
