Before my visit to this great Micro I had the pleasure of walking and shopping in the town, can I just say that Faversham should be extremely proud of itself as the Market town this Christmas was stunning, shops buzzing, great market stalls, brass band playing in the square, you simply could not of wished for anything more, the town was as traditional as you can get and truly felt like Christmas's of old. Inside the pub was no different, as ready flow of customers before a brief quiet period then before you knew it the pub was heaving, great atmosphere!

Knew this Micropub was going to be busy by the amount of condensation on the windows and upon entering my thoughts were right. A very busy session in this wonderful “proper” Micropub.
Kent - Prohibition4.80ExceptionalExcellent condition and wonderful lacing on the glass showd me that I drank this pint in 4 glugs....very quaffable.

Just after 4pm opening time. A few in already - I like the seating here - up high and facing each other across the walkway - conducive to conversation. I was offered the 10p a pint CAMRA discount without asking. Very good value.
Oakham - Inferno4.00Good
Four Candles - NZ Double Hop4.50GoodNice but didn’t live up to the hoppiness the name suggested.
