Late morning visit, a really nice pub, just what a village local should be like. Fairly quiet at this time of day but there was one chap practicing his darts and a group of ladies having coffees. It was nice to see bar billiards here.

Mid afternoon. Some eaters plus two (mature) drinkers sitting at the bar playing with their phones. I took the opportunity of counting the pewter tankards on display - 44, is this a record? Then sauntered in the garden in the sunshine - it is a decent size and set well back from the busy road.
Wye Valley - HPA (Hereford Pale Ale)4.00GoodRefreshing and in good condition - but very pale - a few more hops wouldn’t have gone amiss.

Mid afternoon bus break en route from Minster to Canterbury. Busy. Disappointed that we had to ask for all 4 pints to be topped up.
Otter - Springfest4.00AcceptableNot really to my taste.

A really attractive pub this one. Exactly what I want from a village pub; low beams, nooks, crannies, worn wood, deep rich-green furnishings. If I still lived in Wingham I'd be here a lot.
Franklins - Mama Knows Best4.10ExcellentShe cleared the pipes before serving me. Excellent condition. Oakay, rough tar-like malt and black pepper hops.

St Patrick's day just after 5. Very busy with diddly diddly music from a group of 5 strings giving it their all. Good craic I believe is the correct description.
Nelson - Scrum Half4.00GoodMalty.

Wantsum - 13813.80ExcellentGood condition. Light golden bitter. Reedy with rose notes. Nice. This nearly as good as Canterbury Ales Wife of Bath. Nearly :-)

Jane and Isabel were going to get their hair cut in Wingham so I tagged along. I lived here for a number of years so it was interesting to come back. The Anchor is a really nice pub with lots of old beams and hops. 3 beers on now including a Kent micro.
Wantsum - Hengist5.00ExcellentGood condition. Soft in the mouth. Hint of marzipan. Rich light brown colour

My visit coincided with the pub's regular Sunday afternoon live music spot. The place was very busy; and the atmosphere was brilliant! Before joining the music lovers in the main bar, I squeezed into the packed restaurant and had a very nice (and reasonably priced!) Sunday roast. The staff were friendly and helpful - A great pub: I'll definitely go back there.

It was mid evening and the main bar was fairly busy as they had a live singer in.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10GoodA good pint. Bitter to start with followed by deep malt and some caramel on the finish
