The Vale Tavern is a traditional, detached purpose-built pub, with large trade gardens and a good size car park, in a residential position on the outskirts of Ramsgate town centre. A central bar serves two separate trade areas, one currently housing a pool table, but often used for small parties/private functions, while the main bar has table and chair seating. The seating is made up from a mixture of wooden loose and fixed seats, including comfy bar stools. The décor is traditional throughout and comprises a wooden bar, with carpeted and laminate flooring to separate each area. The are two games areas within the pub, one for pool and the other for darts, both prove popular amongst the regular customers. A catering kitchen is located on the ground floor capable of producing a simple food offer. To the front of the pub is a wide patio area with bench seating and a separate enclosed patio and shelter. To the rear is an extensive and fully enclosed beer garden, well used in the summer months for parties and functions.
