Afternoon visit around 3 - I was the only customer but I liked the feel of the place - a traditional country pub - with a bar billiards table!

Empty pub, a few people sitting outside in the evening sun.
Hopdaemon - Golden Braid3.70AcceptableA bit tired and past it's best. Confirmed when a new barrel had to be put on for the next pint.
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50AcceptableAgain, not at it's best. Not what I expect from this beer or this pub.

Sunday teatime half a dozen locals in, good old fashioned country pub atmosphere.
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50ExcellentI had forgotten how nice this is, a super pintmalt and good hops, very fresh tasting.
Hopdaemon - Golden Braid3.70GoodA nice pint but a close second to the skrimshander in my opinion.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00GoodLacking that distinctive Harvey's aroma but still a nice pint.

Lunchtime on a blustery Sunday.The cosy looking front bar was full, as was the dining room at the back, where we enjoyed Sunday lunch.A proper pub in an interesting village, where I once bought a letterbox.
Hopdaemon - Golden Braid3.70ExcellentA revelation-I hadn't tried this before,an epitome of East Kent .Great hops, followed by a floral , aromatic taste very reminiscent of Fremlins back in the 70's. In my personal rating scheme, I gave it 4.5 stars.
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50GoodThat wonderful Skrimshander depth of flavour, perhaps not the best I've had,but still high in my estimation.

Early evening, very much a local trade at this time of day with most of the customers on first name terms with the bar staff. I sat in a corner and relaxed with a nice view of the village square and church.
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50ExcellentMy favourite of the Hopdaemon beers. This was in fine fettle, and a most enjoyable pint.

I visited at lunchtime, and found the place reasonably busy, and was welcomed by a friendly landlord. The Hopdeamon Golden Braid was very enjoyable. This pub now serves as the village Post Office.
