A really attractive pub this one. Exactly what I want from a village pub; low beams, nooks, crannies, worn wood, deep rich-green furnishings. If I still lived in Wingham I'd be here a lot.

Franklins - Mama Knows Best4.10ExcellentShe cleared the pipes before serving me. Excellent condition. Oakay, rough tar-like malt and black pepper hops.

St Patrick's day just after 5. Very busy with diddly diddly music from a group of 5 strings giving it their all. Good craic I believe is the correct description.

Jane and Isabel were going to get their hair cut in Wingham so I tagged along. I lived here for a number of years so it was interesting to come back. The Anchor is a really nice pub with lots of old beams and hops. 3 beers on now including a Kent micro.

My visit coincided with the pub's regular Sunday afternoon live music spot. The place was very busy; and the atmosphere was brilliant! Before joining the music lovers in the main bar, I squeezed into the packed restaurant and had a very nice (and reasonably priced!) Sunday roast. The staff were friendly and helpful - A great pub: I'll definitely go back there.

It was mid evening and the main bar was fairly busy as they had a live singer in.

Fuller's - London Pride4.10GoodA good pint. Bitter to start with followed by deep malt and some caramel on the finish

Only 2 other people in on a late Saturday afternoon. In fact I've never been in it with more than a handfull of other drinkers - but then I don't often go in

Village pub with lots of wood in evidence in the interior. Only London Pride available as a bitter when I visited. Very pleasant.

Fuller's - London Pride4.10AcceptableThis was fine. Slightly too cold but had some caramel and hops

We turned up just before closing so got a rather frosty reception. The pub was fairly quiet.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's - London Pride4.10GoodAs good as London Pride gets.

Virtually empty except for a few locals sitting around the bar. It's a loverly pub and really feels like a drinkers venue not a resturant
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's - London Pride4.10GoodNice. I know that's a bland comment but it was, well, nice.
