Evening. A bus journey of exploration to the Island. Fortunately others guided me to this haven. Friendly welcome and brief cellar tour. Immaculate unisex loo. Upon leaving we were bombarded with buses in both directions (to Sheerness).

Summary of Beer Scores


The pub is found in Minster on Sea (Sheppey), Kent, ME12 3JE.

The Isle of Sheppey's first Micropub located in Minster Road. A former Post Office now converted to a real ale and cider haven where conversation is King. Opened on Friday 24th January 2014 and to allcomers the following day. A welcome addition to the real ale scene in the area. Beers and ciders are sold on gravity dispense using cooled jackets on stillage in a room behind the bar. Seating is on 2 levels. The landlady Margaret has family ties to the Charrington's brewing dynasty and consequently Charrington's artefacts are on show throughout - any donations of more would be gratefully accepted. The owners here also run A Y's Man Micropub in Sheerness.

We have visited this pub 4 times, seen 11 different beers and tried 6 of them.
