Lunchtime visit to this idyllic location, the terminus of bus 660 from Faversham, (at least all the time that KCC continue to fund it). We sat in the right hand bar and suffered some ear piercing screeches from a small child in a high chair.

Evening on a May Wednesday:we were greeted by the Anvil Chorus, as a group of would-be mixologists were instructed in the dark art of cocktail making.I doubt if much learnt will be remembered by morning.Great pub.

Rockin Robin - Reckless Robin4.50ExcellentA new brewery for me. I'd always thought that Rockin Robin produced "traditional" beers. This was earthy, but in a contemporary manner.Grand.

After the farmers market.We enjoyed the beer and fish 'n' chips and discussed elderly dogs falling down stairs.

Westerham - Bohemian Rhapsody4.00ExcellentI'm not a lager drinker, but really enjoyed this: the first lager I've tried that doesn't have that unpleasant grainy metallic backtaste. Gentle hops with a long bitter finish.
Musket - Muzzleloader (superseded by 4.5% version)5.00GoodChestnut brown strong 'un.Arboreal, smoky. Malt driven.
