Early evening and very busy, diners were having to wait for tables. I wondered why so many pubs in this town no longer bother to open on Tuesdays. Service was very good and friendly. I shared a table with a group of people from Dover who were having drinks before going to the Mexican Restaurant opposite the pub.

First stop on my birthday crawl with my lovely daughter. Late lunchtime - a few customers in - we sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine.

Late lunchtime - just a couple of other customers in. Our group of 7 debated whether this was a micro-pub or not - no consensus- but we all liked it nonetheless.
