Afternoon visit and fairly quiet. A beer delivery of key kegs and polykegs was made, I had never heard of polykegs before.

No cask ale tonight so I settled for a half of Wild Beer Co. Millionaire from keg dispense. I had a good chat with Steve who informed me that this pub will closing from 20 March 2020 for five days for an internal refit.

No cask available today as the one pin that they have was only delivered this morning. Another customer recommended some keg stuff that she was drinking but I thought it was horrible. I tried a keg stout which was much more to my taste.

Friday afternoon and a new face behind the bar as Steve is on his honeymoon. A good discussion about Camra and craft beers.

This place has stopped doing food (apart from crisps et cetera) and has applied for retrospective planning permission for use as a pub.

Fairly quiet but much interes in the forthcoming general election.

Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Made North3.80GoodNot to my taste.

Afternoon visit on a very hot day but thankfully the skies were darkening and getting ready for some welcome rain. Steve showed me a video clip of his recent wedding whilst I was drinking my beer, on the basis that apart from Wetherspoons there was nowhere else in town where I could guarantee a decent pint of cask ale I stayed of a second pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Romney Marsh - Session IPA3.80ExcellentA good traditional pint with considerably more flavour than many 3.8% beers.

Friday evening, conversation was mostly about driving mini cars (Austin and BMW) but one lady changed the subject to London Overground's Class 710 trains, much more interesting.

Saturday evening and busy. Steve was having a weekend off and a young couple were managing the place tonight. A few changes since my last visit, namely the toilets have been relocated upstairs and the food menu has completely changed.

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. In-cask coolers are used to keep the cask beer at cellar temperature. THIS PUB WILL BE CLOSED FOR ALTERATIONS FROM 22-26 MARCH INCLUSIVE WITH PLANNED RE-OPENING AT 16:00 ON 27 MARCH 2020.

We have visited this pub 24 times, seen 32 different beers and tried 23 of them.
