Radio 2 was playing Graeme Norton when I walked in. The pub was empty but then it was only 11:40 am. A man resembling Doc Brown from Back to the Future came in looking for "Dave" and when he found he wasn't here, he exclamed his disbelief and left, leaving me with Greame Norton.

Ripple Steam - Farmhouse Pale Ale4.20GoodGood condition. Tastes of green apple peel and marzipan. Really different in taste. It grew on me.

The Dog has a micro plan downstairs but unfortunately for me they'd had a busy Christmas and as a result were about 4 days away from having the new batch ready. I was told they usually had 1 or 2 of their own beer on. Friendly pub.

It was empty as far as I could tell
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70AcceptableToo cold which killed the hoppyness. The most remarkable thing about this beer was its price: £2.80 a pint.

Fairly quiet but had a good atmosphere, which might have been helped by all the smoke (but then we were in the smoking room)

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70GoodAgressively hoppy all the way to the end of the pint. Best pint of it I've had for ages

The public bar was busy with local baseball capped youths with the smaller lounge bar empty.

Wells & Young's (Charles Wells now) - Wells Bombardier (now superseded by 4.1% version)4.30AcceptableA weird one. The first taste was Bombardier but then it just vanished. What the hell they'd done to this pint we'll never know

After a half of London Pride in the Anchor and some unforgettable beer in the Red Lion in Wingham. Went into the sallon Bar as it seemed less busy.

Wells & Young's (Charles Wells now) - Courage Best Bitter4.00AcceptableThin - will not live in the memory for long.
Wells & Young's (Charles Wells now) - Wells Bombardier (now superseded by 4.1% version)4.30AcceptableStrange one - first taste WAS Bombardier but vanished like smoke.

When on a lunch time session but as I was driving I couldn't drink. The pub was quiet but it was a Monday. The majority of the space is laid up for eating but there is one dedicated drinking bar and half the middle bar is reserved for drinkers. The landlord had only taken over recently and was very friendly. The menu is extensive but more restraunt than bar-snacks
