Evening, full as I passed earlier but thinning out by 7pm. Landlord regaled us with some old music celeb stories - seems that the Small Faces, Average White Band and Boomtown Rats all have local connections.

6 pm visit - very busy but got a seat. Great ambience here - mainly mature folk with a good mix of gender for a micropub.

Earlyish evening. Walked here from the station and past 5 other pubs in the street, including the Faversham ‘spoons. It was noticeable that Furlongs was by far the most inviting and probably the busiest.

Early evening. Very busy - good to see. I noticed the landlord disappear downstairs - this micro has a proper cellar!

Early evening. Busy - had a good chat with some regulars including Tyler, brewer for Angels and Demons. The covered area to the rear was getting well used.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Kent - Prohibition4.80ExcellentFresh on as the Citra ended. Top class.
Angels & Demons (now uses McCanns branding not its own) - Goldilocks is Dead5.30ExcellentSo good - even though the brewer confesses that they were now using hop pellets for this brew.
Kent - Citra4.50GoodNear the end of the barrel - but very drinkable.

Pub 3. The bartender was informative in a machine-gun delivery sort of way. Bar area pretty full just after 1 pm but a larger covered garden area provided further space. 4 key keg ales on as well.

Lunchtime visit - nicely busy and much cosier than the Creeker’s. I was offered a seat next to a couple of locals and enjoyed some good banter with them. Four good value cask ales on (£3.70 to £4.10).
BeerABVScoreNotes
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Dark Conspiracy4.90AcceptableThis may have rated a “good” score - but as a dark beer with a good ABV I was rather disappointed by the lack of flavour and body. Went down easily all the same.

Very quiet in this usually busy micro, perhaps the weather was putting people off? Even more reason to go to the pub I say 🍺👍

Faversham's first Micropub, at the Market Place end of Preston Street, which opened on 18th December 2014 having previously been open for a short while as a pop-up during the town's Hop Festival in the autumn. Shop conversion from a wet fish shop. Small oblong room, sparsely decorated, with large central skylight. High wall mounted benches provide the seating at high tables. Small bar counter in the far left hand corner is equipped with 6 wall mounted handpumps and 1 on the counter top for the real ale and cider dispense. Unisex toilet at the back. Lost the apostrophe in its name with recent new signage!
