Very busy! This pub has a wonderful old school town pub vibe, a eclectic mix of customers lots of groups all sitting drinking chatting, with its wall seating benches it gives it that classic pub feel.

Last pub before the last train home, yet another great pub oozing great Christmas cheer, eclectic mix of customers but all enjoying the festivities, had an almost london boozer feel about it.

Eve of the hop festival, I had a couple of pints with a friend who was staying here before I caught the last train to Ebbsfleet. Unfortunately the forthcoming hop festival meant that we had to have plastic glasses.

The pub is found in Faversham, Kent, ME13 8PE.

Splendid pub / hotel / restaurant with original Victorian bar back, although sadly, the snob screens disappeared a few years ago. Bar Billiards, Darts, and Shove Halfpenny can be played here. 5 handpumps sported on the bar here in banks of 2 and 3.

We have visited this pub 26 times, seen 14 different beers and tried 7 of them.
