Lunchtime - busy but good service and we had a couple of rather tasty fish burgers and chips. I was allowed round the bar area to take a picture of the record written on the ceiling of the one and only 4-Way channel swim crossing completed by Sarah Thomas of the USA last September in 59 hours and 10 minutes. Humbling.

Lunchtime- nicely busy, mainly lunching. I was here with 5 old mates to play Liar Dice in memory of one of our group who sadly passed this year. 20 years playing this hugely amusing game and I am still a novice.

On the recommendation of Keith from Lanes (which is closed today). New ownership this year. Pleasant enough but the beers were not inspiring.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Greene King - Revolver4.00GoodNew beer from GK to celebrate something about the Beatles. Bit bland (appropriately, I guess) - but well kept and refreshing. (Not exactly sure about the ABV - but under 4 - I will try to be more observant in future)

The pub is found in Dover, Kent, CT16 1QF.

3 room pub with up to 4 beers on handpull. This pub dates from 1365, during the reign of Edward III and was built as a dwelling house for the Churchwarden of St James' Church which stood next door. These days it displays the details of many cross-channel swimmers on its walls, ceilings, and doors. Has recently had several periods of closure and in September 2012 is currently closed once more despite being an entry in the CAMRA 2013 Good Beer Guide. Subsequently re-opened.

We have visited this pub 21 times, seen 34 different beers and tried 17 of them.
