It must be a good 10 years since I have been in this pub. I cycled around Willesborough and Wye to get here from Ashford on a sweltering hot Sunday so I was ready for my pint. Only Master Brew on, but the pint was excellent. I guess if you only do 1 beer, then do it well. A fair number of locals were at the bar in the public bar.
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70ExcellentDeep copper colour with bubbly off white head. Caramel aroma with Sheps yeast. Full and juicy malt in mouth with more caramel and pleasant biting hop finish.
