Evening until 9pm close. A cracking Micropub but my colleague found it very echoey and told the proprietors that in no uncertain terms. The close seating arrangements make for inevitable conversations. Personally I'd like to see some Kentish beers always on the menu.
Saltaire - Raspberry Blonde4.00GoodWell balanced mix of fruit tones and light bitterness
Bad Seed - Cascadian Dark Ale5.00AcceptableFlattish, needed a head and more condition
