Back onto the top of the Downs for a New Year's Day lunch and walk in the rain.The pub was busy with diners and drinkers enjoying good Kentish food and drink.The cat was on fine form.

Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50ExceptionalA lovely grassy, biscuity IPA. One of my favourite Kentish beers at the moment.
Kent - Cobnut4.10ExcellentDark ruby. Malt driven, with bold rasping hops.My first experience of this intriguing brewery.
Kent - Zingiber4.10Not TriedI had a taster of this: a good balance of hop and spice, though not really to my taste.

My first visit. Most impressed by the welcome without being pushy or overbearing. Only two beers available today but up to four are on later in the week. They are all from Kent Breweries. Most impressive menu of local food (and very tasty too).

A busy Sunday lunchtime in this archetypal Kentish pub- a friendly cat, fresh hops on the ceiling and an open fire-in September.

Dark Star - American Pale Ale (some, if not all, also brewed by Fuller's)4.70ExceptionalAn excellent golden ale-intensely hopped, with a blast of citrus. My only quibble is that I'd like a bit more malt in the mix. In the running for my eer of the year.
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50ExceptionalPerhaps more to my regular taste than the APA: a good honest mid brown fruity beer with a profound hoppy finish.

We arrived 5 minutes after the pub opened at lunchtime and judging by the 5 members of staff behind the bar it was going to get busy. Since the weather was warmish we sat outside. I liked the pub and could easily see myself camping there one day and doing a session.

Wantsum - More's Head (previously 3.4%)3.50GoodMy kind of beer; brown, earthy hop, malty body. What a beer should be.
