New pub entry for me - although I was here on 21 April 1982 for my wedding anniversary. It doesn’t appear to have changed much. Sunday lunchtime cycle group meet. Nicely busy. Well kept beers, but not very adventurous.

A wet and windy afternoon. Once upon a time I lived around this way. It was nice to be back. The pub was much the same as when Sheps had it. Seemed friendly.
Moorhouse's - Blond Witch4.50GoodGood condition. Creamy and hoppy beer with a nice rich soapy mouth feel.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried

We cycled here with a thunderstorm straight ahead of us. The pub was empty except for the staff. It was friendly as always and a short lived power cut caused by the storm made it even more enjoyable.
Shepherd Neame - Goldings (superseded by 4.1% version)4.70GoodA sweet slightly rose hip initial taste followed by a resinous bitterness after the swallow.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Staple, Kent, CT3 1LE.

A really old pub in Barnsole Road. The kind of pub you could imagine walking into after a hard day working as a farmhand and having a pint of Fremlins (RIP). It has 3 rooms: 1 is a public bar that's got a large TV, pool table etc. another is the dining room and the 3rd is the saloon bar. The pub used to be a brewery. Friendly enough and fairly busy for the middle of nowhere.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 8 different beers and tried 6 of them.
