Pub 8. A tap heaven. Ian loved it; taps taps taps. Apparently keg beer is as good as cask - blar blar blar - says Ian. Anyway, very pleasant venue.

Evening visit and impressed by the enthusiasm of the barman who answered our multitude of questions about KeyKegs but naturally failed to convince we two caskmen of the acceptability of the contents. Only listed the one beer I tried.

Website.

The pub is found in Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1AZ.

It calls itself a craft beer bar and is in the middle of the High Street. Shop conversion, which is long and narrow, with a bar on the right behind which are 12 wall mounted taps connected to visible KeyKegs underneath. When it first opened it made a point of insisting it was not a Micropub. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic owners and staff.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 13 different beers and tried 2 of them.
