Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Yalding, Kent, ME18 6HG.

Very old pub, in an idyllic location in Hampstead Lane, on the locks of the three rivers that converge here, the Beult, Teise and Medway. With a thatched roof and much intact interior detail, exposed beams and brickwork, uneven ceilings, stone floors, much extended over time. A large, outside seating area is very popular in summertime. Local attractions nearby include a large park, straddling the rivers and two old bridges, one from medieval times. Popular with canoeist's and boaters alike. Also, opposite the pub is Teapot Island, another local attraction, with a building housing a world reord amount of teapots! A cafe is attached to this too. Purchased by Shepherd Neame in 2015.

We have visited this pub once, seen 2 different beers and tried 1 of them.
