Cleveland CAMRA North-East Region
Pub Of The Year 2013
Different beers since opening day (25th November 2009) - and counting!
We will be CLOSED
Thursday 20th JUNE
to Tuesday 2nd July inclusive,
for Provencal studies,
REOPENING WEDNESDAY 3rd July.
And... Breaking news...
We'll be closed Christmas week 2013, because The Rat doesn't do Christmas. And I'm going to France.
And finally for now... we'll probably be closed for a few days in early September, because it's Kip's birthday.
We are now
CLOSED on ALL
Sundays and Mondays.
CAMRA North-East Regional Cider Pub Of The Year 2012 and Cleveland CAMRA North-East Region PUB OF THE YEAR 2013
NOW SELLS A SMALL RANGE OF
Rat Race Ale House polo shirts and
gift vouchers now available
We are now open until 9pm every Saturday, even when Hartlepool United are playing
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!
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, excellent Belgian beer and a good night's sleep - and Watou is a great place to visit for beer!
And finally, as I can't keep up with all the Micropubs popping up all over the country, all the best examples are members of the Micropub Association
And for what it's worth, we're even on Twitter @ratracealehouse
