Nice sunday afternoon visit. Even though it wasn't on the pumps, APA was served up direct from the barrel in the cellar! Cheers Oggie!

The pub is found in Salehurst, East Sussex, TN32 5PH.

Tucked away in the small village of Salehurst near Robertsbridge this pub is an excellent community pub. Bought by a local primary school teacher the pub is now run and managed by two generations of the family. 'Oggie' was a former drayman for Ridleys and then Greene King but he takes pride in offering good beers at very reasonable prices. The pub has good food, promoting local produce including meats from a neighbouring farm, local apple juices and Sandhurst wines. Menus are sometimes themed (steaks, curries, pizzas etc) so check. There is a snug with log fire and boxed games to while away the hours for the the more competitive among us. The rear garden includes a good size patio which should be a sun-trap in summer. So named after the former railway station that was located here, the pub is the heart of the local community. It is a post shoot watering hole and is often visited by persons attending funerals at the church which is just 50 yards away. The pub recently produced a 'naughty but nice' calendar for charity featuring staff and locals. Non beer drinkers can savour Leffe and Bushels Cider (from Biddenden). There is a big fluffy cat called Cous-cous who lives next door but frequents the establishment! Those with a philosophy bent will enjoy the stock of books on the book shelves! Beer festival each July. Try the anagram board! All-in-all, an excellent pub that demands support.

We have visited this pub 11 times, seen 23 different beers and tried 18 of them.
