Made it here just before 2 closing time. Empty - and then 3 more turned up. Louise, the landlady stoic as usual and happy to serve us all and chat. She said that the Chequers on Stone Street has reopened, and hat if it is successful she will be closing the Petham Pint in the Autumn. Apparently she only opened it because the village no longer had a pub. Shame - this is a gem. Had a new golden ale from Wantsum- Jubilee at 4.3%

Here with my old mate Chippy John delivering his draft tax returns for consideration of the landlady - we had beer and complementary cheese so this was definitely a works meeting. Inside the converted stables - very comfortable with a large wood-burning stove on the go.

Nice evening for a cycle - landlady encouraged me to chat with a couple of other senior cyclists. We discussed pubs of the past - The Peacock in a Blean; The Church and State between Blean and Dunkirk; The Mounted Rifleman near Faversham; and the nearby Compasses when it was a freehouse run by “Essex John” before it became a Shep’s house and lost its vibe. Nice. There is now an inside area in a converted stables here. Beer still £3 a pint.

Back for a second visit at 6 pm sharp - I cycled and thought of just having a glass of water but had 2 pints instead. Landlady Louise very welcoming, she has been in the house for 30 years and opened this because of the lack of local hostelries. Despite the cold weather a over a dozen customers in the garden by 6:30.

Good news - a new micro in a village that has recently lost its last pub. Here for 6pm opening to meet old friends. We walked through the kitchen/tap room to sit in the sunny, enclosed garden. Within an hour about 15 customers and as it got chilly the fire pit was lit. Wantsum beers straight from the barrel plus a selection of 3 ciders. Beers at £3 a pint! Excellent.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wantsum - 13813.80ExcellentFresh and tasty, sparklingly clear.
Wantsum - Yellow Tail4.50GoodZesty. A little hazy so not quite a 4 star.
