Sunday morning and already a few in, this was my first visit since the recent refurbishment. Sheps appear to have done quite a good job.

After a disappointing meal in the White Lion across the road I came in here to see what I could have had, and I think we would have been better off in here even though the staff were rushed off their feet.

Early afternoon, this pub has a new manager who seems to be very enthusiastic. A good late lunchtime trade, I treated a myself to a sausage and onion sandwich to accompany my pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Late Red4.50ExcellentI understand that Sheps have slightly tweaked the recipe this year, this pint was very good and restored my faith after a recent disappointing pint elsewhere.
