Evening. Looking sad and forlorn outside the station, no not me but this pub with almost all signage removed. Very much now a former pub.

Evening. Signage as A Taste of Portugal now obscures all old Globe & Engine nameboards. Clearly no longer a pub as sign says alcohol is only served with a meal. Had to walk on by.

Just time for a pint before the train, a few locals in didn't seem particularly friendly so didn't hang around, although I'm sure they're prefectly nice.

The pub is found in Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 3DW.

Sheps house next to Sittingbourne railway station. Closed and boarded up for a period in 2012 but then re-opened. At July 2013 all the signing shows "A Taste of Portugal" although Shepherd Neame branding remains and the venue is still listed on the Sheps website. Clearly no longer a pub as a poster in a glass fronted cabinet by the front door says "Please note this is a Café/Restaurant. Alcohol is only served with a meal from 1100 a.m.". In May 2015 all signage removed and the building is painted anonymous white and vacant. End of the line as a pub or any other use seems inevitable? Reopened in 2016 as Lang's Bar & Cocktail Lounge with real ale availability not known.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 1 beer and tried it.
