Fairly quiet but it was a Monday evening in January and the nearby restaurants all seemed to have lots of empty tables. I had a good chat with the licencee about pub trade in general.

The quality and range of beers in this pub seems to have improved recently so I may visit more often than I used to.

This pub seems much improved of late. A fair crowd of chatty customers made this an enjoyable visit.

I came here hoping to have a pint from the Old Dairy Brewery. There was none available so I did not stay for a beer.

Fairly quiet, I wanted to try the Red Top again.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Dairy - Red Top3.80AcceptableBetter than the first time I had this here. Cracking condition. Apple yeast on aroma, pretty decent malt in mouth, some tickle on end. Solidly acceptable.

On a tip off from Whinger that an Old Dairy beer may be found here, I popped in for a well deserved pint after cleaning the bathroom at home. And it was!! Microbrewery beer appears in Ashford pub (not a Spoons) shocker!!! Pub had a few people in, I sat at a table near the front and drank my pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Dairy - Red Top3.80AcceptableA little haze to a mid brown colour. A little yeast on aroma, mostly malt in mouth and not much hop on finish. A not very bitter bitter. Little bit of herb flavour.

A colleague had given me a lift to Ashford and I had to walk past 3 pubs before I got to my house and since I had read that this pub and The Man of Kent were selling real ale, I thought that I would pop in for one.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10AcceptableOK best bitter, bit syrupy on the malts, some hop sting on the finish.
