Saturday evening - a group of history re-enactors in one bar - some in costume. Eclectic decor. Strange use of the space with a single dining table in each of the other two bars areas. I quite like it.
Mad Cat - Oatrageous Green Hop Oat Pale Ale3.90Good(Probably not the green hop variety of Outageous) - lively hoppy brew.
Mad Cat - Platinum Blonde (previously Meaney's Platinum Blonde Ale)4.20AcceptableRather flat.

My first visit to this pub since it re-opened, it used to be food orientated but is now very much a pub with food. I enjoyed playing the vintage pin ball machine which operates on 1/= or the large 5p coins, it will also take florins. There is a bar billiards table and devil among the taylors for pub games enthusiasts. Very much a different type of place to what it used to be.
Hopdaemon - Red4.20Good
Tonbridge - Golden Rule3.50Not Tried
Mad Cat - Santa Paws4.50Not TriedOn offer at £2.50pp.

This was a lovely day for a tour of isolated rural pubs. Staff were friendly and helpful, and I really enjoyed it in here.
Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70ExcellentFull of flavour, one of the best pints of Adnams that I have had for some time. The legendary seaweed flavour was here to enjoy to the full.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried

First time I've been here although I did once use their car park to turn round in. Nice pub. Big on French food which explained the enticing smell of muscles throughout the pub.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80AcceptableEggy-farty aroma. Tasted a bit thin; bit like dilute orangeade.
