Well there was ale on sale at all the main bars called Gadds Seasider http://www.ramsgateb...k/seasider.html
£3.50 per pint
the Camp site bar being smaller was planned to only sell cans - wines and spirits as there is no room for anything else.
Just at the entrance where the coaches drop people off there is a large Pub hidden from view but I reckon most people would have missed it
its behind some trees on the right of the two images
I cant say if Security was allowing ticket holders down that path as I and all my friends had Crew passes so just walked past them but we were drinking in there the night before Hop Farm started and its a big pub with a large beer garden out the back and I am sure there was locals in there as well.
The next day I had two friends who had day tickets and I met them at the coach drop off point and they certainly did not have a crew pass but they were not stopped as we walked to the Pub.
It was not clear why Security was standing there but as the back road takes you to the production area this may be why they were standing there
