About the Pub

This micropub, formerly a shop, is situated on the edge of Dover's shopping precinct. Run by Peter and Kathryn Garstin, former landlords of the Yew Tree, Barfrestone, and Blakes of Dover, it provides a welcoming haven from the bustling town centre.

A constantly changing list of real ales is available from a wide variety of breweries. The sign on the front of the pub clearly indicates that “There is no 'f'in Lager', however their regular beer, Westerham's Bohemian Rhapsody, is a gluten-free unrefined pilsner served from Key Keg.

They also have a good range of draught ciders from rare and smaller cider makers, both in Kent and further afield.

Real ales and ciders are served on gravity dispense from a temperature controlled cellar room, which has one hand pump, used to dispense northern beers in the proper manner.

Lined glasses are typically used for lively ales but are available on request.

Inside, there's plenty of comfortable seating, including a sofa and soft armchairs and a 200 year old church pulpit forms the bar.

There is a piano and a guitar in the pub which customers are welcome to play if they wish, so occasional, impromptu jam sessions do happen.

The Mash Tun does not provide food cooked on the premises, but they have arrangements with local food outlets which gives you loads of choice, including an Italian, a Chinese noodle bar, an Indian restaurant and a kebab shop. They are all within 100 yards and will deliver. You are also welcome to take your own food. On Sunday, home-made nibbles are served. You can also buy free range eggs, laid by their own chickens - subject to availability!

There is a public car park opposite the pub with free parking for blue badge holders.

Although closed on Monday and Tuesday, the pub will open for parties and function by arrangement.
