About the Pub

Change of use of the ground floor of this late 60s estate pub to a pharmacy and micropub was granted by the local council in 2017. The micropub opened at the end of April 2018 serving ales, cider and wines. Real ales and a large range of ciders / perries are sold on gravity dispense from a room behind the L-shaped bar counter, the real ale being stored in jacket cooled casks. The focus on the ales and ciders is from local Kentish producers.
