Only just remembered my visit here. Once again under new management. They now sell Greene King IPA in a choice of extra cold or smoothflow, smashing. It was very busy in here, but not sure if that's a product of the new people or the fact it was Christmas eve.
Hydes - Rockin' Robin4.60AcceptableSweet vaguely fruity beer. Alright but not worth staying for.
Greene King - IPA (was 3.6%)3.40Not Tried

It's been ages since I've been here, it was really hot at work so I decided I needed a pint to cool down. Under new management now but not much has changed. Sat in the beer garden and relaxed for half an hour, then off back to work.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 35.00GoodPretty much the perfect beer on a day like today. Wasn't on top form but still very good. Light, sweet and hoppy.
Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Wells Bombardier (now superseded by 4.1% version)4.30Not Tried

Popped in on my lunch break. Only three other people in, they'd had a power cut so everything was broken. Recently been taken over and the only friendly bar-maid left has handed in her notice, shame.
Cains - Dragon Heart5.00GoodDeep chestnut/ruby colour. Thin tight tan head. Treacle nose with good hop earthy. Full in mouth and quite smooth with tangy citrus finish. Malts fade quite quickly dark fruits on nose, blackberries. Quite nice
Greene King - Abbot5.00PoorSomeone bought me one without my knowledge, I hate this beer....
