Not long after opening time and already a few in, we sat outside and made the most of a warm sunny afternoon, sadly lacking of late. A good selection of beers on today, could've stayed much longer...

Lunchtime- first stop on our Thanet crawl - but we liked it so much we stayed for the whole session. All beers in very good condition. Plenty of chatty regulars. Our group of 7 made the pub pretty much full at times.
