Back in the frame after a near five month P&B "sabbatical"? With a slightly different take, I'll be focusing my visits/reporting on Kentish pubs with an occasional foray further afield.

Stop number 4. Really enjoyed this pub. Relaxed and a beer for £2 a pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Rother Valley - Hoppers Ale (now use 4.4% entry)4.20ExcellentSpecial on at £2 a pint. According to the landlord he has a guest beer on at this price most of the time and they go really quickly. Very hoppy and good bitterness.

1st pub on our crawl! Got here just before opening and the landlord kindly let us in before it got too busy (there were 16 of us) sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine looking at the church, really nice interior to the pub as well.

Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70ExcellentAs a shepherd neame tennant i can safely say it was in top nick- if you like master brew that is! To those who do it was nice and full flavoured as it should be
Hogs Back - Hop Garden Gold4.40ExcellentReally good beer to drink in the sunshine, nice and light, not too floral, or to floury, just right
Robinsons - Dizzy Blonde Amarillo Pale Ale3.80Not Tried

Saturday lunchtime. Good friendly atmosphere and I sat outside enjoying the view of the beer garden at the front and the church.
