The Ravensgate Arms in Ramsgate  is now open.

The King Street boozer shut on May 20 after Thanet council revoked its licence.

The move outraged many regulars who were disgusted at the severity of the penalty.

But now the doors are open again under general manager Roger Bell who originally opened the venue in 2014.

He is joined in the venture by Eddie Gadd of GADDS’ Ramsgate Brewery  who will be providing his beers and Kiki Case who will be in charge of food and wine.

In a statement on The Ravensgate Arms facebook page Mr Bell said: “The pub will remain a free house and will be host to the best beer, wine and food the world has to offer. We will offer up to 10 keg lines and 3 cask lines served through hand pulls.”

The pub opened for three pop-up nights over the weekend from August 31, with the first night dedicated to former employee and musician Paul Butters. A raffle in his honour raised £1,083 for mental health charity Mind.

The doors then closed again to allow for a refurb of the property to take place.
