The front bar was full so we sat in the rear part which we had to ourselves. I have not listed all the beers as we could not see the menu from where we were sitting. The lady serving us said she had Goacher's Dark Star so we did not put too much faith in what we were being told.

Lunchtime- first stop on a mini cycle tour of East Kent. 2 other beers on - a Gadd’s green hop was one. Good chatting with the two other customers - one used to work at the Hair of the Dog - my next stop.
Kent - Green Hop 20204.70ExceptionalMy first green hop ale this year. Absolutely delicious - probably haven’t got the name correct.

Early afternoon - I had cycled to the Butchers Arms - but alas it was closed - so thought I would try here as Andrew had noted it open. Glad I did, vey good beer and an interesting chat with a local (Alan) - who had been at the same secondary school as me - albeit 20 years later. Three ales on - but I didnt note the others.
Wantsum - Montgomery (was SS Richard Montgomery)4.00ExcellentSpot on.
