Always one of my favourite places in Tunbridge Wells. Stripped floorboards, great metal old adverts on walls and a slightly different line up of beers. Goachers Light and a Westerham house beer Joey’s Bite 4.0% plus continental tap beers including Erdinger, Flensburger, Lindeboom, Liefmans Kriek. Oh and Orval in bottles. I spent a lovely hour or so here drinking beer I liked and typing up beer ratings.

Westerham - Joey's Bite4.00ExcellentGood looking copper brown colour with lasting off white head. I love Westerham beers. The yeast is just so distinctive. Good condition, well served. Decent best bitter, with decent yeast, ok malts, bit biscuity especially with this crisp biscuit finish. And then lasting bitterness that lasts in the mouth for ages. Lovely best bitter. Gorgeous, one of the best bitters I’ve had in ages. The yeast, the biscuit the bitter finish. Awesome.

Lunchtime on Bank Holiday Monday and there were a smattering of people in and some customers in the brasserie downstairs. I had a half of Dortmunder Union Export and a half of Erdinger White. I will definitely be back for a longer session later in the summer.
