15 Apr 2017 (Philip Pirrip)
Early evening visit. Not all what I expected, to be confronted by a waitress upon arrival to take my order. Perhaps initial local fad but was packed and became very noisy. I think there is a curfew time on the outside garden area, which brought more people inside. The PT values on the blackboard flummoxed me until I was told it referred to Periodic Table (of beer styles).

Kent - Ēostre4.20AcceptableTasty enough Citra hop beer but no head and as flat as a pancake so rather unappetising

The pub is found in West Malling, Kent, ME19 6LU.

Hidden down an alley in High Street, opposite Swan Street, a Micropub furnished in a smart and contemporary style, which opened in early April 2017. An L-shaped floor area with a mixture of high and low tables with mainly bench seating. Real ales and ciders are sold from behind a small bar counter, on gravity dispense from a temperature controlled cellar room. Outside patio garden. At busy times waiter/waitress service applies. The beer backboard shows brewery, name, abv, PT and pint price, and PT stands for Periodic Table and nearby is a poster explaining how the periodic table of beer styles works.

We have visited this pub once, seen 6 different beers and tried 2 of them.
