Attending the 2019 Heritage Transport Show it was refreshing to see Goody Ales well represented here today with a good range on and despite the appalling weather the brewery rep was full of enthusiasm and made for humourous entertaining conversation during our three visits over the course of the day. Not surprisingly turnover was pretty poor down to the weather. There was also a smaller Wantsum Brewery stand inside the main hall with 2 beers on offer alas I did not note what they were.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Detling, Kent, ME14 3HT.

Formerly called the Kent County Showground, this is an area of land in Detling, north of the county town of Maidstone. Stretching along the north side of the A249 from the top of Detling Hill on land that formerly comprised RAF Detling, it is home to the Kent County Agricultural Society which hosts the venue's best-known event, the Kent County Show, each July. However the venue also hosts many other fairs, conferences and events throughout the year. The site covers over 200 acres (0.81 km2) and has been an event site for over 50 years.

We have visited this pub once, seen 4 different beers and tried 2 of them.
