Margate pub history index
listed as Bellevue tavern, New Town in 1858; The Belle Vue appeared in the late 1850's when Cliftonville, then known as Peel Town, was being developed. The current bar has been in place since 1934. The pub narrowly missed an enemy bomb on June 1940, after it exploded opposite at Lloyds Bank. Some structural damage was caused but the pub refused to close. Jack Warner, probably best known for Dickson of Dock Green, frequented the Belle Vue whilst living in Kingsgate, near Broadstairs. Jack would often pop in for a pint and a game of snooker with the landlord.
