Last pub of an evening's crawl of Malling and this was the busiest and brashest. Hardly seemed to be living up to its externally signed Gastropub epithet.

Friday lunchtime. Quite a few people having a snack in the bar and the restaurant was about 50% full. Strange atmosphere, not sure the owners what they are trying to achieve here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Black Sheep - Best Bitter3.80AcceptableCopper coloour, think beige head. Earthy hop aroma with muddy flavour and bitter hop finish. Just a bit thin overall
