Website.

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 17 times, seen 52 different beers and tried 16 of them.
