Must be one of the best views from any Kent pub, the outside seating area was busy with afternoon diners.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00AcceptableA bit disappointed with the Harveys, it tasted a little tired and past it's best.

I came late on a Bank Holiday Monday lunchtime and the place was full. All the tables were being used for dining or drinking. I sat outside admiring the view until the thunderstorm came.
Larkins - Traditional3.40ExcellentCopper colour with lasting off white head. The amount of flavour in this belies the 3.4% ABV. The tangy citrus hop on end is excellent. Could drink pints of the stuff. Easy drinking session bitter, but with intense hop that isn't let down by the malt.
