Was told it was shut by someone out side, but the landlord came out and told me to come in as long as I was quick as they were closing at 4pm to set up for a big function.

Popped in for a quick one on the way home from work with colleagues, a nice surprise to find the current owners first beer festival. Ales in great condition & very friendly staff.

Fabulous Ploughmans. Best I have had in many a year. Worth it just for that. But the beer is of an equally high standard

Hopdaemon - Leviathan6.00ExceptionalLast one before the driver arrived. I took one home for the evening too ! STUNNING
Brentwood - Chestnut Stout3.90ExceptionalI hope that this is not just a seasonal brew. It is so smooth and silky
Hopdaemon - Skrimshander IPA4.50ExceptionalWhat joy! One of may favorite bottled brews on draught !
Hopdaemon - Golden Braid3.70ExcellentSimply stunning pint.
Brentwood - Spooky Moon3.80ExcellentIt is beer that makes pubs. If only all Landlords realised what they know at the Padwell. Good beer= lots of customers

This was the mystery destination for the Thursday evening mild drinkers who arrived by Maltese bus.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tonbridge - Ebony Moon4.20ExcellentThis sample is probably the best I have had yet, more smooth and well rounded with a sweeter malt profile making it more like a "mild porter". My score 16/20.
Larkins - Traditional3.40GoodGood bitterness despite not being particularly hoppy. Fairly dry finish. A little hazy. My score 15/20 with B for quality.
Brentwood - Gold4.30GoodWell balanced golden ale with slightly more biscuity malt then hop. My score 15/20.

I have been to this pub several times over the last nine years. The recent transformation, not only in the decoration but also the staff augurs very well indeed for the future. There was an excellent crowd including a mild ale drinking society who had come by vintage coach. Lovely bunch of people, great warm and friendly atmosphere and a fantastic beer or two. The food was very good and modestly priced. It is great to see a pub being resurrected ! Well done to the Landlady , Maria !

Hopdaemon - Incubus4.00ExceptionalGreat malty depth, superb colour and lovely kick of hops on the nose and the taste buds. A simply stunning pint served perfectly
Fuller's - ESB5.50ExceptionalIt was time for the last one before the taxi picked us up. I could not believe the selection of bottled beers on offer to supplement the drafts ! Served with a bottle glass and not chilled to death! Apparently the landlady is taking advice from a couple of local CAMRA chaps. It shows !
Tonbridge - Ebony Moon4.20ExcellentIm not a regular mild drinker but I love my porter. This neither. It is a half way house , but it is delicious. Big and malty with some chocolate malt flavours and a good hoppy bitterness. personally id have given it top marks if it had a little more body but this is my personal opinion. Great to see a dark beer on that is not guiness too !
Brentwood - Gold4.30ExcellentI think I fell in love with the Padwell at this point. A truly stunning bitter, a great dark mild and now a seriously good golden ale. This was bright and slightly citrus flavoured. Good hop[s and a some light malts. £2.60 a pint !!! It was like being back in the 90-s !
Larkins - Traditional3.40AcceptableThis did not stand up to the other beers. It was just ordinary in comparison, totally outshone. I spoke to one of the regulars and he told me that this was the only beer that the new management had kept on following protests from the regulars when it was dropped. I hope the newbies manage to re-educate the locals, they are making a damned good effort !
