Mid evening and quiet. We were the only customers apart from a couple of chaps at the pool table. Not the usual staff behind the bar makes me think there's been a change of management here plus the decline of beer quality.

Afternoon visit with the public bar full but plenty of room in the other bar so I went in there. People were starting to come in for the evening food offer.

Sunday lunchtime and there was a fair sized crowd in for both a drink and a meal. I must admit that this isn't my type of pub and I doubt if I will be returning.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70PoorThis was brown water with some beer type flavouring. Compared with the first 2 pints I had in the Golden Ball and Conningbrook, this was poor. I can see why someone would rather drink lager than this.

The pub is found in Ashford, Kent, TN24 9AJ.

Shepherd Neame pub on the A251 by the Towers School in the Kennington district. An impression of a comfortable, airy lounge. There is a separate room at the rear for food. The main bar serves a large area, which still feels as though it splits between lounge and public bars. Pool table, large screen TV and juke box are available. Cricket and sporting prints are on the walls of the public bar side. Plenty of seating outside for the summer.

We have visited this pub 6 times, seen 2 different beers and tried 1 of them.
