We had intended to eat here but were told the kitchen had just closed. It was 14:55 with menus chalked up everywhere and sandwiches advertised until 15:00 but there was no food apart from crisps and the like. We checked various internet sites and came to the conclusion that with the notable exception of those good people at Spoons, it is impossible to eat in a Faversham pub on a Tuesday afternoon. We decided to visit a couple more pubs and then catch a bus to Maidstone for the Artemis Restarant which is open in the afternoons. We enjoyed listening to the people at the adjacent table talking absolute rubbish about Maidstone.

Shepherd Neame - Samuel Adams Blonde Ambition4.50Not TriedSays "American Craft Beer" on the pumpclip. Has Kent become the 51st state of the U.S. then? Or 52nd if Puerto Rico joins too.

2025 hours visit. Fells a bit mucky because of its food existence but very friendly bar staff.

Pub number 5 on my Faversham crawl and my attempt to find the best pint of Master Brew in the town. Very busy in this attractive pub. Lots of tourists and locals. Pub has been extended to add a restaurant to the side. Does B&B rooms as well.

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70GoodShep yeast aroma and hops. Yeast, a bit of green apple in mouth. Served too cold. Earthy finish with dry bitter flowery hop. Less fruity than Crown & Anchor, but better hop. Toffee and hop finish are good. Hop makes this one the best so far.

3rd in my cycle ride. Not too busy late afternoon. Bar is at the front of the pub as you walk in, but then there are many different seating areas, including a yard and garden at the back. Nice feel to this pub. I was sat at the front off to one side watching the world go by in a room with an inglenook fireplace.

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70ExcellentReddish brown bitter. Lasting white head. Nice yeasty hoppy aromas with caramel and floral hops leading to a good hop finish. Best pint of this that I think I've had. The drying finish alone is superb. After I took the last gulp I looked at the glass in admiration and appreciation
