Arrived about 4pm. I've not been here since the previous long standing landlord left. The pub had changed but not much. It was slightly more corporate in look but it still retained much of its original charm.

Like the display of wooden casks. Will visit again, although will need lots of money.

Came for lunch. It was nice and sunny in the garden, and quiet. The menu here has lots of options and I had a mixed grill which was very good. Staff here are always friendly.

Shepherd Neame - Late Red4.50AcceptableNo real condition on it. Couple of floaters so I'm guessing bottom of the barrel. Drinkable but a bit dull although there was still a hint of fruity malt about it.

Cycled here, which took about 15 mins, and arrived just after 7. It was such a nice evening that I sat out in the garden listening to the doves and watching the distant poplar trees swaying in the breeze.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Master Brew Bitter3.70GoodIn reasonable condition. Nice hint of mandarine orange and some underlying caramel with a reasonable bitter finish

Very friendly, laid back, country pub with a lovely garden, good range of Sheps and an excellent food menu. Our inquisitive little toddler loves the garden and the landlord is kiddy (and dog) tolerant, so full marks there.

Shepherd Neame - Kent's Best4.10AcceptableKent's Best hey? I don't think so. Brown, slightly malty water with a unsubtle hop bit to the finish.

Came for lunch on a sunny saturday afternoon. This is a lovely pub with a pretty garden which is bounded by a stream.

Shepherd Neame - Mild3.00GoodAlthough Ian tells me this is always keg I'm going to rate it anyway. It smelt slightly sour with a watery subtle burnt malt and hop taste and some very mild caramel on the finish
Shepherd Neame - Whitstable Bay Organic Ale4.50AcceptableBit dusty tasting but okay. Only ever seen this in bottles before and it tasted fairly similar

Pleasant pub by the river with a beautiful beer garden next to the water with willows providing shade. Serves a good range of Shepherd Neame beers. Seems friendly enough. Worth a repeat visit
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Canterbury Jack4.10GoodI quite liked this. Mid brown bitter with flowery hops, Sheps yeast on the nose, some light acids. A good bitter
