Late afternoon much busier than expected, we sat in the games area occupied by noisy youths playing pool making noises similar to one experiences visiting a zoo's monkey house!

Marston's - Pedigree4.50GoodIn fine form, I couldn't decide if this merits a 3.5 or 4 star so I'll give it 3.75

Late afternoon plenty of space available so I opted for the round table 'perch' seats by the entrance. Sadly the days of this pub offering a decent range of beers from the Marston's 'empire' have long gone.

Mid evening not too busy, we came in for a meal which was fine but rather meagre than expected. Just the one cask offering tonight..

My first pub visit since 3rd March for this mid evening visit and our group of three received a friendly welcome at the door and directed to one of many free tables that were available. Apart from only one of us allowed at the bar to order drinks it seemed business as normal, but with a limited food menu on offer.

Early evening taking advantage of Cask Club Monday's £2.50 a pint offer. Busier than expected with a few groups dotted about with an even mix of drinkers and diners plus a birthday function in full swing.

Early evening visit for a comfort stop after a bus journey from Faversham, a quick pint and then a local bus for the rest of the journey. One of the staff members was upset that she had been targeted by fraudsters who attempted to confuse her with a note changing scam. Fortunately they failed.

Mid evening clear at the bar yet many tables taken, mostly drinkers tonight. We sat at at free table by the exit to the beer garden. Nice to see a different beer range from my last visit.

Marston's - 61 Deep3.80ExcellentEasy 4*, perfect temperature and superb condition with a light citrus and honey flavour combined with a bitter hint of an aftertaste. £3.25 a pint for the thrifty minded.

Mid evening fairly quiet just in time for last food orders so hot n spicy chicken wings it was. Pleased to see something different in the beer range tonight.

Late afternoon fairly quiet before the offices opposite finish just a few groups dotted about. ChrisE had a £10 voucher so we enjoyed a bowl of delicious jalapeño poppers each with a sweet chilli dip to complement our beers.
