Final pub of the day, a good atmosphere and some nice people.

Ridgeside - Objects in Space4.80GoodI really do not like these murky looking pints that seem popular these days. This one was what I imagine cold grapefruit soup to look and taste like. £4.40 per pint.

Pleasant and relaxed evening visit although for some reason I found the seating rather cramped annd uncomfortable tonight.
BeerABVScoreNotes

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.

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 is a second pub in this chain, in Maidstone.

We have visited this pub 50 times, seen 52 different beers and tried 43 of them.
