Having helped out at two micropubs for around two years in the Thanet area (as well as frequenting many micropubs for research purposes!) we decided it was something we wanted to do for ourselves and started looking for the right location and luckily found the old fancy dress shop in Sandgate and the dream became a reality.
We received the keys to the property on the 18th August 2015 and then realised that there was a real ale and food festival being held in Sandgate on the 28th August so we literally had 10 days to completely renovate the property, build a stillage and then get the best selection of beers in place – but with a lot of hard work we achieved it and we opened the doors at 5pm to find people waiting outside and we haven’t looked back since.
The aim of Inn Doors is to create a small, friendly comfortable area where customers can meet to enjoy a drink and good conversation. We have created the look of a 1930s living room with period furniture and decoration. Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in the pub.
We serve real ale from the cask which is kept at the perfect temperature in our purpose built stillage. We offer a small selection of bottled craft beers and a variety of ciders (including the very poplar rhubarb cider). Red, white and rose wine, prosecco . We have also become known for our extensive choice of premium gins (30+). We also have rums, vodka , port, brandy , whisky and a choice of soft drinks.
Bar snacks are available which include pork pies, cheese or meat platter, cheese ploughman’s, olives, bread and olive oil & balsamic vinegar, amazing pickled eggs with a chilli kick, pickled onions and a selection of crisps and snacks.
There is no loud music, large tv screens or gaming machines, mobiles are on silent as we want to encourage people to socialise. We are dog friendly.
