My first visit to this Wetherspoon pub. Just one girl serving as the duty manager was talking to some police officers. A fine addition to the pubs on this island which was once a beer desert but is now showing a lot of promise.

Sunday early evening, very busy with diners. Slightly disappointed with the beer range on offer considering they have 12 hand pumps!

Evening. Security on the door, very busy inside with drinkers and especially with family diners, on second day of opening. Well staffed with enthusiastic young bar staff. Inevitably a few rough edges on service but this place is already an outstanding success.

The pub is found in Sheerness, Kent, ME12 1NL.

An impressive pub conversion in the former Brittain & Hobbs electrical goods shop in the High Street opened as a pub on Tuesday 22nd July 2014. It is a narrow pub but goes back a very long way. Contemporary decor with a long bar on the left at the front with 12 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 6. This leads to an extensive seating area to the rear with a number of wall booths too. There is a paved patio garden to the rear right with several upturned half boats as seating features.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 11 different beers and tried 3 of them.
