I originally popped in at opening time for one pint, then I checked the Stagecoach App and found that my planned bus was one of today's many cancellations so I stayed for another. I was the only customer for the duration.

Summary of Beer Scores


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. Card payment only, no cash. Since autumn 2021 there was a second pub in this chain, in Maidstone which subsequently closed. Closed in May 2023 citing lack of viability.

We have visited this pub 60 times, seen 56 different beers and tried 47 of them.
