Thanet Star

Fancy a pint on me?

Convince me that your local is the best in Thanet and I will visit your local and buy you a pint.

What is your local like?

To get a beer on me (Matt) what you need to do is send Thanet Star an email (address is in the image above) and tell us a few words about your local.

Perhaps consider including a few photographs of your and your friends enjoying the fine establishment.

Don't forget to say what the pub is called and how I can find it and if you convince Matt that it is the best local in Thanet then Matt will meet you there and buy you a pint.

You can review a chain or an independent freehouse. Your local can be a micropub, a licensed cafe or something entirely new. It only needs to be a pub that you and your friends like to go to.

Some questions you might like to use

Sometimes when writing a short review your mind goes blank and you cannot think what to say. At times like this I turn to my trusty list of standard questions which include things like:

  • What do you like about this local?
  • What is unique about your favourite pub?
  • Is there anything you might change?
  • What's the atmosphere like?
  • Why did you first visit and what keeps you coming back?
  • When do you like to visit the pub?
  • Who do you like to visit the pub with?
  • Do they do food and what's it like?
  • What sort of drinks do they offer?

You don't have to answer any of these questions or you can answer all of them and make up some new ones. All you need to do is tell me why you like your local and why I might want to buy you the pint in that pub.

Terms and conditions

Your review may be published online and should be at least a few sentences long but no more than 800 words. All pictures should be viewable by a general audience. While I would love to hear about pubs in other parts of Kent to be eligible for consideration the pub you review must be in Thanet. Matt will make up his mind in his own time and will decide the winner as he sees fit - the judges decision is final and all that.

Very Important: only reviews sent to the correct email address will be considered.
