We are socialising a Terrier:this entails frequent pub visits.We'd forgotten that every pub in the Kent/Sussex border zone would be rammed with families,it being Easter Saturday:eventually we pitched up here, and sat in the public bar.Mixed trade, friendly Guv.
Pig & Porter - Slave to the Money4.10GoodUnusually, for these days, described as a Bitter.Black currants,some mineral notes:sweetish.

Very quiet on a Saturday midday. No Kent beers on the bar, so I followed Dosser's lead, and turned on my heel.

My first visit here since Young Farmers' back in the seventies,when it was a Charrington pub.We sat at the wobbly table in the bow window in some welcome March lunchtime sun.
Dark Star - Hophead (some has also been brewed by Fuller's)3.80ExcellentI haven't tried this for a while:some say it's not as good as it was. Hmm. Seems mellower and less austere.Good sackful of newstyle hops, though.
Goody Ales - Bleangate Brewery - Genesis3.50ExcellentRuby session bitter.Rich for the abv, and a long hop finish.
Old Dairy - Red Top3.80Not Tried
Old Dairy - Copper Top4.10Not Tried

Evening visit as we had booked a table in the restaurant. Has been totally refurbished in the latest distressed wood, light coloured walls and Farrow and Ball paint on some woodwork. Still retains a drinking area but seems to concentrate on the dining experience. The meal was very nice but restaurant prices.
