On my way back from the Barrow House - recommended by one of the locals there - well it would have been rude not to go in. Not at all busy - bar staff rather preoccupied though. Clean and pleasant. Pricey - £2.30 a half. Oh Sheps - I do keep trying, but so often I am disappointed.

17:30 visit. We stopped here en-route home from Whitstable Oyster Festival. A lovely old pub, Shep's owned, and quite a crowd turned up in due course including a small coach party from the Oyster Festival. They were known to one of our party and were stopping off here for a drink plus a meal. A very nice country pub.
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70ExcellentTwo of our party thought this was in excellent condition here today. I thought it was good, and much better than the special on here.
Shepherd Neame - Torchbearer Ale4.50GoodOn the current Olympic theme, new for me. An odd one this with dry, malty, sulphur notes. Not one of Shep's best efforts, or maybe just an aquired taste.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Charing Heath, Kent, TN27 0AU.

Attractive, beamed pub with two bars in Charing Heath Road, quality dining and a nice garden. Located at a country junction with great views. Pictures on the walls show a very rural idyll from bygone days of this very old pub. Refurbished and re-opened in January 2020 and with 4 en-suite letting rooms added too.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 3 different beers and tried them all.
