Eve of the hop festival, I had a couple of pints with a friend who was staying here before I caught the last train to Ebbsfleet. Unfortunately the forthcoming hop festival meant that we had to have plastic glasses.

About 13:20 on a Tuesday lunchtime, it had just started raining so we popped in here for some shelter. Just a few customers at the bar but we were tempted to try the lamb stew and dumplings, and I wish we had done as we were unable to get anything to eat in the afternoon at any of the foodie pubs.

730 pm visit. Very Christmassy. Reasonably busy. Prompt service
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70AcceptableVery ordinary but in reasonable condition. Quite a malty example with a weak hop element.

Evening 2005-2010 for quick train change half. Staff milling around the cash till but few being served so thirst was left unquenched.

The pub is found in Faversham, Kent, ME13 8PE.

Splendid pub / hotel / restaurant with original Victorian bar back, although sadly, the snob screens disappeared a few years ago. Bar Billiards, Darts, and Shove Halfpenny can be played here. 5 handpumps sported on the bar here in banks of 2 and 3.

We have visited this pub 18 times, seen 10 different beers and tried 7 of them.
