Margate’s Cinque Ports pub closes temporarily after downpours cause flooding

The Cinque Ports

The newly renovated Cinque Ports pub on Margate seafront is temporarily closed due to flooding.

Workman are currently on-site making the property water tight following recent downpours. The work is described as minor and the pub is expected to reopen soon.

The pub in Marine Parade reopened in May this year after an extensive renovation to bring it back to its 1930s glory.

Once a favourite haunt of mods and rockers in the 1960s, it now offers real ale, ciders and wines and ‘best of British” food.

In 2015 the site operated as the ticket and main office for the reopened Dreamland. The ground floor bar was used as a pop-up alehouse for the summer season 2016. The pub reverted to its original name following the refurbishment which was part of a larger £25 million overhaul of the amusement park and connected buildings.
