Monday afternoon with good weather, this pub was quite busy but adequately staffed with no waiting at the bar. All eighteen hand pumps were in use with twelve different beers downstairs and six beers upstairs of which a few were also available on the ground floor. Two of the members of staff that I spoke to were ecstatic about the Banana Bread Beer from Charles Wells.

Ringwood - Fortyniner4.90GoodBarman asked me why I wanted the sparkler removed. Learn something new everyday.
Shepherd Neame - The Faversham Steam Brewery - Whitstable Bay Pale Ale 3.90GoodBoss gave me a sample of the £3.90 key keg version which was nice. But not worth £3.90

Friday lunchtime - very busy and service slow (as seems to be the norm in 'spoons). No rush though and we sat outside in the sunshine on the sea-facing veranda with about 100 others. Very impressed with the refurbishment of this iconic seaside building. A lot of pumps turned round or "coming soon". Just noted the couple I had plus a couple of more unusual ales on.

4 Guests on, 6 available soons and 9 Ruddles, Abbott and gloombar. When the guests go off they are not being replaced but the regulars are. 90 min wait for food. I had a pint but after I queued 20 mins for another one I was told I had to join a queue though I should have been next. Sophie the young barmaid told me to join behind 7 others. No thank you. Customer isnt always right in this place.

Just back from holiday and had to visit. 18 handpumps in action. But 9 of them had Ruddles, Abbot and Gloombar. 2 sorry not availables leaving 7 beers of which we tried two. Very noisy. Lots of youngsters. I counted 10 bouncers so we should feel safe. Meal deals all more expensive than any other spoons ive been in.

JW Lees (see also Lees) - Moonraker6.50GoodNot bad and at £2.05 a pint with a camra discount fab value.
Goffs - Jouster Ale4.00AcceptableTasted very much of antiseptic. No body. But drinkable.
