I am a regular visitor to the cafe/restaurant. It is in a perfect location to sit with a newspaper and coffee and watch the world go by. The Turkish restaurant has recently been refurbished and offers a reasonably priced menu. Well worth a visit.

Useful for getting directions and visitor information. The member of staff was a local resident and very knowledgeable and humorous. There is a small shop selling things to raise funds for the lifeboats and a coffee shop. It is a very lovely looking building.

Previously customers have stated no toilet but there is one there for the general public to use and this I know as I regularly visit here for food when in Ramsgate and the toilet is always available and clean.

Hello Sian The Custom House was built in 1893 but I don't know who the architect was, I'm afraid. The Ramsgate Society could probably help with this detail. The decoration outside is great, isn't it, and in such perfect... More
