Tuesday lunchtime and I think we we the first customers at 1pm. Limited beers - two handpumps with clips but the one I had was in excellent condition. Food menu is a little different - where else can you get sprats these days?

This pub has been bought out by the owners of the Bull also in Benenden and renamed the KITTY FISHER. Opening night was Saturday 5 April 2014. Has been moved up-market with an intimate restaurant specialising in seafood and vegetarian apparently. Separate bar area with a cosy feel to it, candlelight and no music. About a dozen of so people in and we enjoyed some complementary giant prawns and ordered a rather good cheese board to accompany the wine and beer.
BeerABVScoreNotes

Old Dairy - Gold Top4.30GoodGood condition and body. Well rounded and malty .

The pub is found in Benenden, Kent, TN17 4DJ.

Located on The Street, formerly a Shepherd Neame house known as the King William IV then purchased by the owners of the Bull Inn on the other side of the green, closed for major refurbishment then re-opened on 5th April 2014 as the Kitty Fisher. The new name comes from an 18th century courtesan who lived in the house that is now Benenden School. There is now an enhanced food offering.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 5 different beers and tried 3 of them.
