Welcome to the Hair of the Dog – Minster’s only Micropub.

Situated in a former Hair Salon in Minster High Street near Ramsgate in Thanet, we look forward to welcoming you and hope you enjoy our beers, ciders, wines, atmosphere, conversation and laughs !

What sets us aside from other pubs ?

Well, first of all we are a “Micropub” or “Ale House”.

So, what is a micropub? As the name suggests, a micropub is generally considered to be a pub that is small and generally only sell Real Ale & Cider.  Many micropubs do not have a bar and offer table service directly from a cellar.  There is also no music, TV or gaming machines.

We go along with some of these “unwritten rules” and are a little more relaxed with others….. We are a small pub in size.  However, we do have a bar with bar stools as well as seating areas.  Our main reason for this comes from visiting other micropubs and seeing people who have never visited them before looking “confused” as they were not sure what to do.  Our bar offers a focal point for anybody coming in and is also a place that we know a lot of our customers like to sit at.

Our opening times are:

Monday-Thursday: Midday – 10pm
Friday & Saturday: Midday – 11pm
Sunday: Midday – 3pm(ish)

Our 3 Real Ales are all served straight from the barrel and change very regularly so pop in to find out what we’ve got on.

We also sell Wines, a small selection of spirits and Tea, Coffee and soft drinks.

Dogs are always welcome, as are children – people with a story to tell are also very welcome !!
