We thought we would try the smallest micro-brewery. We spent an entertaining hour or two trying the beers and nibbles. The other drinkers were friendly and the lady serving very helpful with samples and advice. Great value to boot!

Been here on a number of occasions the beer is good, they have started brewing their own. There is always to chat to & the staff are friendly. If you are in the area it's worth checking out

We had no idea this part of Kent was full of micropubs and this is probably the best. Wonderful beer, very friendly locals and a space so small that you are almost forced to chat to strangers, which is very much part of the fun!...More

This wonderful micropub is the best you can visit: Nice atmosphere, very friendly locals, amiable service and a very good selection of tasty beers. Once you had a pint here, you do not want to go anywhere else. Roland xo
