Tiny pub serves great local beers and wine. It is popular (so it should not be marked down for that reviewers) and it actively discourages the use of mobile phones - plenty nailed to the wall so turn yours off! It is not expensive and...More

Another great micro-pub in kent. Visited on Saturday evening and it was full, with a great atmosphere. The staff and customers could not be more friendly. Well kept beer in a pleasant environment.

Cask ales, great choice, best temperatures and staff who can advise on the best choice for you. No phones, no music, no TV. Great conversation piece! Easy talking, sweet walking company. Love it.
