Steady stream of customers with plenty of banter. Nice to see this Micropub has resisted to go down the keg road, still only cask available and just as it should be.

Just after the 3pm opening time and Iím 5th customer. Last visited here soon after it had just opened so was still very much work in progress, over 3 years on and bar a lick of paint and a few pictures on the walls, not much has changed but that is no bad thing as the ambiance in here this afternoon was wonderful with banter flying around I could have stayed here till closing time 👍

Friday afternoon and just time for a pint before catching my last bus at 17:05, this pub was busy as usual with a good crowd of friendly locals. Camra discount was offered. The beer menu much the same as Philip Pirrip listed yesterday.

Faversham's first Micropub, at the Market Place end of Preston Street, which opened on 18th December 2014 having previously been open for a short while as a pop-up during the town's Hop Festival in the autumn. Shop conversion from a wet fish shop. Small oblong room, sparsely decorated, with large central skylight. High wall mounted benches provide the seating at high tables. Small bar counter in the far left hand corner is equipped with 6 wall mounted handpumps and 1 on the counter top for the real ale and cider dispense. Unisex toilet at the back. CAMRA card holders' discount for real ale and cider, 10p a pint and 5p a half. Lost the apostrophe in its name with recent new signage!
