A stop for some goulash soup and beer. Anybody who likes goulash soup should come here and enjoy a pub with good beers and atmosphere as well. the front area was full so we sat in the small area at the back. I did not make a note of all the beers on offer.

Live football on TV and the pub is crowded with nobody seemingly very keen on budging up to accommodate newcomers. Friendly welcome from behind the bar though.

Afternoon visit. I ordered a mild before I noticed that all bitters were on offer on Wednesday afternoons, and would have been cheaper than my mild.

I knew they'd have a mild on here and indeed they did. It was busy. We sat and watched "Har" play "Bre" on Sky and tried to guess who "Har" and "Bre" were. We got "Har" right!

I had a bit of time to kill while waiting for a mate to get to Whitstable, so I grabbed a paper and came here. This is a great pub, with a fantastic atmosphere. I am always left thinking how much better it would be with a more interesting beer lineup. Oh well...
BeerABVScoreNotes
Elgood's - Black Dog Mild3.60GoodYup, really good as usual. Black with roasted malt and chocolate. Good beer.

Really busy when we got here at about half seven, managed to grab a seat towards the back though. Came here before heading to see a band at the old neptune hoping for a good pint to start the evening. It was not to be unfortunately.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Smiles - Old Tosser4.30PoorThis is not a good beer. Sweet with a slight toffee flavour, but that was it. I think dishwater would be a fair dexription of this beer.

Had a wander around Whitstable for no real reason. It would have been rude not to stop in for a pint. Really busy for around 4 on a saturday. Great, lively atmosphere.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Elgood's - Black Dog Mild3.60ExcellentRich, chocolatey with a fair amount of roasted malt. How do they get so much flavour into a 3.6?
