The pub is found in St Peter's, Kent, CT10 2TU.

Micropub located in Church Street (corner of Northdown Road) which opened on Good Friday 18th April 2014 although it had a pre-opening soirée the previous evening. A converted 19th century stable which serves cask ales, ciders and wines often (but not exclusively) locally produced. Handmade pork pies and Kent crisps and cheese make up the comestibles. The ales and ciders are dispensed by gravity from a cooled cabinet containing wooden stillage capable of holding 8 firkins with cider boxes on the top tier. From the street entrance is gained down a small slope and through a latched wicket gate. This leads to a patio area with wooden decking then to the stable building itself. The inside is floored with original cobbles often strewn with hay for that authentic stable feel. Unisex toilet behind 2 doors in the corner. CAMRA Thanet branch Pub of the Year 2015 and again in 2016. CAMRA East Kent Pub of the Year 2015 and again in 2016. CAMRA Kent Pub of the Year 2015 and subsequently in November 2015 selected as one of the last 4 in the CAMRA National 2015 PoTY competition.

We have visited this pub 38 times, seen 46 different beers and tried 29 of them.
