A busy Saturday afternoon. I notice that Steve is going to stop accepting cash payments from 19 July which is a shame as I do not like using plastic for small amounts of money.

Mallinsons - Hallertau Blanc4.30ExcellentPerfectly well kept but not my style of ale.

Early afternoon visit and comfortably busy. One gentleman arrived who does not own a computer or mobile 'phone and he had difficulty registering on the pub's track and trace screen as it asks you for an email address and will not let you in without one. Sometimes there is just no substitute for pen and paper but that did not seem to be available. Somebody went to the screen and signed him in as qwerty@..com and that gave him access to the pub.

I decided to take advantage of the fact that as from today this pub is open on Mondays. A good steady trade whilst I was in there.

I was the first customer in at 4pm opening time, the place soon became comfortably busy. Steve informed me that he hopes to start opening on Mondays once a suitable member of staff has been recruited.

Late afternoon to mid evening and fairly busy with folk making the most of our new found freedom thus all tables occupied despite the chilly temperature which after a couple of pints wasn't so obvious.

Torrside - Measure Twice4.60GoodEarthy slightly sweet and sulphourous nevertheless good to drink something unusual in this beer drinker's paradise of a town.

I sat in the secluded garden at the rear, not as busy as I thought it might be, the cask ale seemed very popular today.

Early doors on a Saturday. I came in and had a pint whilst waiting for the pub to open. I also sampled some keg Thornbridga DDH Jaipur from one of the keg tsps.

There should have been four of us in here to crack open a bottle of N√łgne Dark Horizon First Edition but as we were down to just two of us we decided to leave that for another day. In addition to the beers listed below we sampled some stout from Glen Affric brewery on keg dispense.

The pub is found in Ashford, Kent, TN23 1JJ.

This pub opened on 27 July 2018 in a former music shop in New Rents. There is seating in the bar area and a separate room to the rear plus a patio area at the back of the pub. Originally all beers were sourced from local breweries and dispensed by gravity from a stillage behind the bar but since then 10 keg lines have been added too and supply may be from outside the local area. A refurbishment took place during March 2020 and beer is now served through a handpump. Refurbishment during 2021 added further lines so now offering 23 beers on keykeg/keg, one cask beer on handpump and half a dozen ciders

We have visited this pub 45 times, seen 48 different beers and tried 39 of them.
