Evening. I think it would help in beer selection if the menu chalkboard showed the brewery name as well as the beer name.

The pub is found in Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 5QA.

Another East Kent Micropub, which opened on St George's Day Tuesday 23rd April 2013. Located at the town end of Station Road opposite the Four Fathoms. A shop conversion which was previously a Kitchen and Bedrooms Showroom. Selling real ales, ciders and wines with the beers and ciders originally on gravity stillage, in a temperature controlled cold room, which could be viewed through a glass window. Initially there was a full bar counter with hatch by the door to the gravity stillage. Low tables and chairs in the bay window. A separate quiet room with tables and chairs down the corridor and a unisex toilet at the back. Hop bines surround the front bay window and the ceiling is adorned with patriotic flags for counties, military and England. With new ownership came changes and now the bar counter is located where the cold room was and ales are served from handpumps.

We have visited this pub 26 times, seen 62 different beers and tried 33 of them.
