About the Pub

OPENING AGAIN FROM 5TH OCTOBER. The hours will be shorter than pre pandemic, (5-8, Tues to Sat).

The original micropub, and a real ale gem. Once a butcher's shop, it still has the original chopping tables, with hooks and other implements. There is seating for 12 customers and standing room for about 20, the compact drinking area ensuring lively banter. An ever-changing variety of guest beers are offered, and customers can buy beer to take home. The pub has won five CAMRA awards and was the East Kent Pub of the Year in 2009. Cask ales are served on gravity dispense from stillage in a temperature controlled cellar room at the rear. Expect to walk through the cellar room to get to the unisex toilet at the very back of the pub. There is a public car park in School Lane.
