Pub no. 9 - and the end of the wall crawl. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening air.

Ok, this was the S&N version of the Parrot (the one without the parrot). Must have been in around the same time as Jack William. Pretty full but managed to find a small table by the bottom fire. Beers as Jack said.

Ian and I sat at the bar and picked at the seams of time to glimpse once more at the ghosts of Grand Union beers past.

Round about the end of the lunchtime session. Friendly bar staff, nice and warm. There were the usual Shepherd Neame beers on, which I don't normally bother to note.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Amber Ale4.50GoodMid brown fruity pleasant ale.
Hopdaemon - Incubus4.00Not TriedI'm not giving it one star as "undrinkable" as I didn't actually drink it. The mud brown sludge that I was offered clearly wasn't right. No problem, my half was replaced and the beer taken off sale.

In Canterbury for a spot of Christmas shopping, decided on The Parrot for luncheon. Had to wait ten minutes as they were cleaning the beer lines. My posh fish finger sandwich was delicious but this place doesn't have the same welcoming vibe as a few years back.

Busy with large groups eating. The atmosphere in here isn't as good as when it was Simple Simon's in my opinion. They could do with bringing back the bands. Still a nice pub though.
