Home Events at the Wheel Alehouse What is Real Ale What are micropubs About Us

The maritime micropub in Birchington

The Wheel is open most evenings and lunchtimes at the weekend.
Full details of the Opening Hours can be found on the 'About' page - clicking on this line will take you there.

The Wheel is a larger than average micro-pub in Thanet, that sells a myriad of Real Ale, Premium Lager, Cider & Wine. Being somewhat different, The Wheel also offers a small selection of spirits (including Vodka, Dark Rum, Brandy, Port and Gin & Tonic).

These pictures show the former man-th-the-wheel, Alan, getting an award from the local RNLI.
(Wendy Teale, George Washer, Bob Anstice and Robert Teale - we even have Carl, the Quiz Master, in some of these!).
The Wheel managed to raise the highest RNLI contribution in this area for a year - yet it had only been open for just over six months when it got this award.
The Wheel Alehouse is a proud sponsor of the RNLI - EVERY £2 quiz entry fee is given to the RNLI.
