Visited the Air Show weekend, although very busy the staff were welcoming and friendly, the selection was good though limited, mainly because they had sold out because of the Air Show One minor criticism is that it shuts at 9pm

You feel at home as soon as you walk in, A constantly changing selections of beer and cider. All at reasonable prices. I liked the T-shirts hung from the ceiling - see if you can guess what group the land lord is fanatical about.

A late lunchtime stop for some light refreshment. The Landlord is really friendly to the point that it was pass closing time and he was not pushy to ask us to leave. Lots of great ales and plenty of local banter! Thank you.

We looked high and low for this one . Situated near the job centre off of the high street. Great decor , friendly host decent ale. Plenty of sociable conversation with the regulars. Well worth a visit.

A great place to drink complimented by a fine gathering of people who make everyone welcome. Always a good selection of beers available to suit all tastes. Well worth a visit if you seeing Herne Bay.
