Early afternoon with just two other customers who were from Canada. Clean set up with cask ales and keg beers being dispensed through the back wall behind the bar.

Afternoon - just a couple of other punters apart from our party of six. More like a normal pub than a micro - nice and airy, very clean throughout. We sat in the window and enjoyed the sun and people watching.

Whitstable - Native Bitter3.70Good
Yeovil - British Summer Time4.50GoodExcellent condition- a little bland after ten Boutilliers beers we had earlier.
Daleside - Autumn Leaves3.40AcceptableCondition ok - but "brown ale" flavour not to my liking.
Brampton - Mild4.90Not TriedWow 4.9 for a mild - went down well with some of my group.

The pub is found in Faversham, Kent, ME13 8PE.

A two roomed pub, in the style of a Micropub, created from a glazing shop conversion in Preston Street which opened on 1st December 2016. Real ales, ciders and keg beers are sold from the bar counter in the bare boarded front room through a line of wall taps. More comfortably appointed rear room up three steps. Inevitably majors on selling products from the owning Whitstable Brewery.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 40 different beers and tried 14 of them.
