I cycled down from Ashford on the old Hamstreet road and turned off at Sugarloaf Corner and went through the woodland where all is in bud now and then down into Warehorne. It looked a picture in the spring sunshine. I sat outside and was joined by a group of walkers.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00ExcellentThe best bitter in Britain at the moment? Probably.

I had a very pleasant cycle ride down to this pub from Ashford, along the old Brenzett road and then turned off at Sugarloaf Corner and went through the Forestry Commission woods to come out just above Warehorne. First one in and I warmed myself by the real fire and sat at the bar. Goachers Mild pump clip was turned round, but 3 other beers were on. This is a glorious old building with lots of dark wooden beams and plenty of character.
Goacher's - Crown Imperial Stout4.50ExcellentThe first half a pint didn't touch the sides. Very slightly sour, but with more emphasis on roasted malts with charcoal and touch of liquorice than this time last year, when the beer was more smokey and with bacon notes. This was more roasted and toasted malt.

I had spent the afternoon cycling around the Romney Marsh and I finished off here. Again, I can't believe that I have not been here before. I have seen the signs for it many times. I was the first one in as they opened for Saturday evening at 6pm. 3 beers on. I liked it so much I brought my mother and sister back for Sunday lunch the next day.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00ExcellentThis made it for me. I took my pint glass in and asked for a half of Harvey's. Instead of getting a half pint glass or measuring it, I got a big dollop of beer instead (reminded me of Frank's halves in The Mogul, Dover). Harvey's yeast aroma, but fuller malt than I would expect. Sharp hop/malt finish. Excellent with a nice biting hop finish. Went really well with my roast lamb the next day.
Goacher's - Special House Ale3.80GoodGoachers Fine Light Ale with a little dark ale for flavour and badged at 3.8% Woolpack Inn Goachers Ale. More malt than just the Light on its own. Nice.
