Royal harbour surrounded by Georgian Elegance

Ramsgate is a seaside town on the Isle of Thanet in East Kent. It has the only Royal Harbour in the country and is full of beautiful buildings, quirky shops and has a stunning Blue Flag beach. The Falstaff is located in Addington Street, within the West Cliff conservation area, and a short distance from the Royal Harbour.

Addington Street was originally the high street for the West Cliff area of Ramsgate. With its historic buildings, cafés, and shops, it is generally considered to be the artists' quarter of Ramsgate and is home to the Addington Street Historical fair which takes place in September every year.

The Falstaff, A Historical Building in a Historical Town 


Originally built as two houses in 1801, they were combined and altered into the Falstaff public house at some time between 1821 - 1840.

The building is thought to have connections with Sir Arthur Wellesley - the Duke of Wellington. It has an ornately decorated room at the rear of the building (the Waterloo Room) which is believed to have been used to host war council meetings at the height of the Napoleonic wars. 
At some time during the latter part of the Victorian era the Waterloo Room was a curiosity museum.

The Falstaff relaunched in late 2015 after an extensive but sympathetic renovation  and  was recently awarded the Ramsgate Societies Design Award


We can't wait to see you.
