My Wetherspoons boycott is not going well. Just the one though after a good trip to the Freed Man. Just notes the one beer - new for me.

Early afternoon- caught up with my bus-pass chums for a swift one early afternoon. Reasonable choice of beers and many at just £2.10 a pint.

About 2 - absolutely heaving upstairs and down. But we managed to get food and drinks fairly quickly using the app. (Can’t find the “Eagle entry” for Bombardier).

Sunday afternoon - thought I’d check out the refurb. Not busy and so quite pleasant - I got served straight away! Layout has not changed but the two dominant TVs have been replaced by just in a more discrete location. It seems lighter and more relaxed than before. Rather disappointing beer selection - just 6, and 3 of those standard spoons fare.

The pub is found in Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2HG.

Located in Burgate just off The Parade. Very substantial frontage but not too deep. History of pub name: Richard Harris Barham was born in 1788, at 61 Burgate, across the road from this Wetherspoon pub. Using the pen name Thomas Ingoldsby he wrote The Ingoldsby Legends, which first appeared in 1840, in a periodical edited by Charles Dickens. Richard Harris Barham, alias Thomas Ingoldsby, had an accident when he was 14, which crippled his right arm. During a long convalescence he began to write. Re-opened on 29th May 2018 after 4 months of closure to add hotel facilities (13 rooms) and an upstairs bar and bar counter.

We have visited this pub 103 times, seen 292 different beers and tried 137 of them.
