Former Ramsgate pub set to be converted to homes

The Foresters Arms

A Ramsgate pub that sold at auction for £200,000  is likely to be turned into two houses.

The Foresters Arms in Boundary Road  went under the hammer at a Clive Emson auction in May and stopped trading in June.

The building has been listed as a pub since 1860 but an application has now been made to Thanet council to convert it into two, two-bedroom homes.

John Anastasio submitted the application on October 1.

The pub is the latest in a long line of Ramsgate boozers which have closed and been converted to housing including The Blazing Donkey, The Admiral Fox, the Southwood Tavern and The Derby Arms to name just a few.
