Sunday lunchtime. Good cycle ride here from Ashford. Not been in more than a decade, but I still liked the place. Landlady in particular was very welcoming and informative. I will be back if I ever make it up that hill again.

Shepherd Neame - 4-4-24.00ExcellentMy god, a Sheps beer with hops!!! Good fullness in the body and good hop bitterness and sting on the finish. I would have stayed for another but I had pubs to visit.

A cosy main bar, together with a games room, and two little rooms laid up for dining.The pub was encouragingly busy for a murky January night.

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70ExceptionalHad that marmaladey chewiness that can elevate a usually ordinary bitter to something almost inspirational. Masterbrew isn't usually as good as this, but this shows that it can!
