Mid-afternoon - swift one before my train. Lively. Ps, if you think you need the loo here then go - by the time you get there you WILL need it. Only one of the two banks of pumps noted.

Just before noon, waiting for Donna’s to open. I believe that this is my very first pub visit in Sittingbourne ever. Pleasant ‘spoons - I liked the picture of Dali.

Much busier than I expected for a Tuesday afternoon but we managed to find a table without difficulty. Service was good, as was the beer range, once again I have not listed them all. We decided to search the internet to find out why the pub is called the Golden Hope, the answer is on JDWs web site.

One of the nicest Spoons that I have been to. A good mix of customers, friendly staff and a very keen manager who came over and talked to us about beer. All of the beers that were on the bar were available now, most encouraging.

Early evening. Only a few days old but already a good crowd in. Beer range pared down from its opening day and neither my colleague nor I were tempted by the offerings.
