RAT RACE ALE HOUSE 

AT  HARTLEPOOL  RAILWAY  STATION

1765

Different beers from 491 different breweries 

since opening day (25th November 2009) - and counting!

_________________________________

 

We will be

 

 

CLOSED

 

 

Sunday 22 March 2020

 

for the foreseeable future.

 

 

 

19 JULY 2021 UPDATE...

 

 

The current relaxation of the COVID regulations

 

would be sufficient to reopen The Rat.

 

However, the lease expires on August 18 and 

 

we have yet to see any sign of a renewal.

 

It will take an investment of several thousand to

 

reopen, so until a lease renewal is achieved, 

 

reopening is not an option.

 

 

 

 

Of course, there's every chance that by the time 

 

the lease is sorted, we may be back in lockdown.

 

Again.

 

 

Remember when life was "normal"?

 

 

 

Fret not.  The Rat will return.

 

 

 

 

THANKS TO EVERYBODY FOR THEIR SUPPORT.  

 

 

 

 

 

The Rat is  still  in a far healthier position than

 

many other businesses or individuals, so when

 

the Government tells us we can open as usual

 

AND the Railways/Property agents have agreed

 

a new lease...

 

 

 

 

WE'LL  BE  BACK!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 And of course...

We are now

CLOSED on ALL

Sundays and Mondays.

And we're now on Twitter as @ratracealehouse, but it all seems a bit pointless as there's no way I can condense the beer list down to 140 lousy, miserable characters, unless somebody out there has some bright ideas?

Thanks to Lorna for the Rat!!

 

Yet more thanks to Martyn Hillier at The Butcher's Arms - click here - for giving me the idea for starting the RRA!

 

If you're in the vicinity of Newark-on-Trent and you need a Micropub fix, why not visit Just Beer?

Or if you're in Ramsgate and need a beer in a Micropub, there's always The Conqueror!

And finally on Micropubs - As I can't keep up with all the new openings across the country, the best examples are all members of the Micropub Association

For those planning a food and drink trip further afield, the Rat heartily recommends visiting De Paterstafel at Watouplein 14, 8978 Watou, Belgium, for great food (Mike - the menu isn't in English!), excellent Belgian beer and a good night's sleep - and Watou is a great place to visit for BEER!
