Mid Sat evening - empty in the bar, a few eaters in. The prices here continue to amaze me £9.40 for a pint and a 175ml glass of Shiraz - we moved on to the Fordwich Arms next and saved a whopping £2.40 on the same drinks.

Just made it in time for 60p off a pint (before 1900) - but at their normal prices they are not exactly cutting their throats. Quite busy, good atmosphere.

Old Dairy - Cattle Shed4.50ExcellentFull flavoured APA with plenty of flowery hoppiness. I was surprised when I asked for a second that it had finished - good to the end then as well.
Phoenix - Brunning & Price Original Bitter 3.80AcceptableA bit cloying after the APA.

Mid evening - a good few in - but this may well be my last visit for a while here: £9 for a pint and a medium glass of wine is just not on in East Kent I think.

Sat evening - plenty of eaters in. Bar area had a few drinkers. I expressed concern over the high prices rather spoiling the good beer selection and pleasant ambience of the pub.

Saturday afternoon following a raft race on the river - live entertainment, beers and BBQ in the garden - plenty of families enjoying the event in the sunshine. Very good.

I have always been very impressed with Brunning and Price pubs and came here because it is run by a sister company to that group. I am pleased to report to Jack William that our sandwiches were served up on plates. The chap behind the bar was extremely good and gave us decent sized tasters of two new beers that he put on whilst we were eating our food. He also told us that Brunning and Price have recently bought up a few more pubs in the South of England.

Sunday lunch for a family meal - busy and staff a little stretched - but good choice of well kept beers again. With exception of 'spoons I think this pub is one of the best for real ale variety in the Canterbury area.

Here with Ian on a country pub mini tour of this and the Fordwich Arms. This is such a nice pub. We stayed for 3 pints, went to the Fordwich Arms and then came back here for another.

Easter Monday late lunchtime. Very busy - stopped for a pint, but had lunch - nice food shame about the lack of plates (I believe it is considered fashionable by some to serve food on lumps of wood these days). Back here after my visit last month - good to see the variety of ales continues.
