Late afternoon, after 4, still very busy with diners but a nice atmosphere in the bar area and not too crowded. Beers a little samey. The rhubarb cider got a thumbs-up from my daughter.

5 ish - I have cut down brambles and other stuff to keep the cycle route clear - time for a pint. A good few customers sprinkled around the bars and the sunny garden.

Ripple Steam - Original Best Bitter4.10AcceptableSo called "happy hour" with 50p off a pint. Just the £3.50 then. Clear with a good head but tasted past its best.

Evening - here for a big family "do". Still an impressive range of ales - still rather pricey.

Mid Sat evening - empty in the bar, a few eaters in. The prices here continue to amaze me £9.40 for a pint and a 175ml glass of Shiraz - we moved on to the Fordwich Arms next and saved a whopping £2.40 on the same drinks.

Just made it in time for 60p off a pint (before 1900) - but at their normal prices they are not exactly cutting their throats. Quite busy, good atmosphere.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Dairy - Cattle Shed4.50ExcellentFull flavoured APA with plenty of flowery hoppiness. I was surprised when I asked for a second that it had finished - good to the end then as well.
Phoenix - Brunning & Price Original Bitter 3.80AcceptableA bit cloying after the APA.

Mid evening - a good few in - but this may well be my last visit for a while here: £9 for a pint and a medium glass of wine is just not on in East Kent I think.

Sat evening - plenty of eaters in. Bar area had a few drinkers. I expressed concern over the high prices rather spoiling the good beer selection and pleasant ambience of the pub.

Saturday afternoon following a raft race on the river - live entertainment, beers and BBQ in the garden - plenty of families enjoying the event in the sunshine. Very good.
