Came for lunch. First time I've ever been in this pub and it was lovely. The landlord was very friendly and helpful and the beer was excellent. Really good pub.

Pub seemed quite quiet when we arrived at 1pm on a Sunday. It quickly filled up with diners for the carvery and we we lucky to get a small table for two amongst the sofas.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Dark Star - Over The Moon3.80ExcellentAn excellent dark beer.
Dark Star - Hophead (some has also been brewed by Fuller's)3.80ExcellentGiven the number of beers and the age of the punters I thought this to be in excellent condition.
Whitstable - East India Pale Ale (or EIPA)4.10AcceptableIn good condition but I found this rather bland and shallow. Very few flavours coming through.
