Came her mid evening with Jane, her mum and her brother. The pub garden was full of men in dresses singing rugby songs. We sat in the little green opposite the pub and drank our beer whilst being serenaded with a song about the sexual exploits of Yogi Bear.

After a cold, windy but bright lunch time walk from Wingham it was good to get inside a warm pub. The interior is small but interestingly partitioned. Unfortuately the prevailing smell was of burning stale fat.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Greene King - IPA3.60AcceptableWell served and quite pleasant but hey, it's Green King IPA
Greene King - Morland Old Speckled Hen4.50PoorI haven't had Old Speckled Hen in 10 years and perhaps this is why.
Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70Not TriedThey'd run out
