Garden was busy by 1pm so we sat inside which also became fully occupied by late afternoon. Potential customers queuing outside only to be told the pub was at full capacity in these Covid times. Amazingly the one member of staff on manages to greet and take details at the door, serve, do table service inside and out, clean and change casks all on her own and the service is excellent, other establishments take note!
Canterbury Ales (sometimes badged as Canterbrew) - The Wife of Bath's Ale3.90ExcellentNice soft floral notes with hint of citrus
Kent - Beyond the Pale5.40ExcellentDelicious dry strong pale of the finest order 👍

Wonderful Sunday afternoon session in sunny Faversham. For me this Micropub is without a doubt one of the best there is, superb beer selection served in tip top condition.
Burning Sky - Plateau3.50ExceptionalJust has to be a 5*! A fine example of a perfect pint, incredible condition, immaculately polished pint with a tight brilliant white head with incredible lacing with a wonderful tingly sensation on the tongue and an almost cream like mouthfeel.... Exceptional 👍
Goacher's - Crown Imperial Stout4.50ExcellentTruly a wonderful beer and for me the best cask stout there is.
Hopdaemon - Green Daemon5.00ExcellentAfter the Burning Sky Plateau this was like a massive smack in the face! Intense strong flavour.

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!
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Little Cracker5.00Excellent
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - East Kent India Pale Ale6.50ExcellentStunning stuff, big bold flavoursome pint with an almost spirit like finish
