See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This snug pub, was at one time tied to Flint and Co of Canterbury. It appears to have started life as two cottages. J Fowler was the publican in 1885, which was the year Sir Moses Montefiore died aged 100. The pub's name and sign are unique. They honour the great centenarian, whose connections with the town are legendary. Montefiore had a varied life as a financier, Sheriff of London and campaigner for Jewish rights in the Middle East. Locally, however, he is remembered principally as a benefactor to the town's poor. For a good part of his life he lived at East Cliff Lodge, where he entertained such notables as Princess Victoria. Since September 2014 has been run by Eddie Gadd of the nearby Ramsgate Brewery.
