Came in early lunchtime a couple of months ago with a small group of friends. As it was early, it was fairly quiet so service excellent and easy to get a good standing spot.

As its a while ago, I can't remember what I had but between us we had all of the Sheps beers that they stock and some Guiness. All were in good condition and went down very well - an excellent start to the afternoon!

We like the Jam Pot - solid pub, no pretensions and usually a good pint and for those who son't know it, worth a visit just to explore the nooks and crannies.

Cheers!

This pub is proper old, although maybe not as intimate as that fact might imply. It's quite open, in fact, with big windows – like a Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawks' but with reduced melancholy. The bar is partitioned into three parts, which means there's somewhere for everyone, and even drinking outside represents a worthy option; this listed pub's exterior is impressive, and St. Michael's alley – where you will find this hostelry – actually contributes towards its character. 9/10

First visit here for many a moon the other night, probably first since it was taken over by Sheps..
Seems to be better run and the Ale quality is certainly improved from remembrances, which is befitting a good old historic city boozer like this one.
Three Shep's ales on with the Spitfire in good nick, but also a decent guest in the shape of Whitstable breweries East India Pale Ale

4 ales on handpump. £3.89 a pint.

Was in and out early mid-week so wasn't over busy. No problem getting served.

Lovely little boozer down an alleyway off Cornhill. Friendly staff, decent beer, and set in an olde worlde alleyway with (as the previous review mentioned) a fair bit of history.

Only downside is the sphincter-clenching prices - 4.40 for a pint of San Miguel - so probably not somewhere to go if you're looking for a night out on a budget....
