The saloon bar of the Rose in June is reminiscent of an East End pub at the turn of the last century. It is adorned with unique hand-etched mirrors, while a beaten leather frieze depicting cherubs runs around the walls.
The pub, part of which used to be a boarding house, is situated close to the cliff-top Winter Gardens theatre and is just a few minutes’ walk from Margate’s famous golden sands. It boasts two bars and a forecourt, and basic bar meals such as chicken and chips and Sunday roasts are on offer.
There is live music and karaoke on alternate Saturday nights. Several community groups hold their meetings in the pub and local artists exhibit their work there. The cellar used to be connected to Margate’s caves system and is said to be home to at least three ghosts.
