A welcoming pub which now has a smart modern edge while still retaining a countryish, cosy feel to it once inside. Plainly, much investment has been ploughed in to the Farriers recently, and by and large one must agree that it has been worthwhile. Besides the bar and interior design, there is the small but surprisingly prolific Farriers micro-brewery. I'm happy to say I have a visit lined up for late January 2013, but havein the meantime at least enjoyed their Christmas Ale at 4.8% - a real charmer and rather more sessionable than most winter seasonal offerings.

Four cask ales were on and all those we sampled were nicely-kept and very Kentish. Food was not needed nor served, though the menu sounded appealing at a glance; I do hope the quality and value issues mentioned on here previously are being attended to as there's no point spoiling this ship for a ha'porth of tar.

Excellent work overall folks - should be back soon.

The map on this page suggests the pub is in the middle of a field to the NORTH of the A20. It isn't as it's SOUTH of the A20. Check on Google Maps before you visit. Incidentally I drank Farriers Christmas Ale at the White Horse at Sandway yesterday. Heaven!

Before today I was last there three years ago, and in the meantime the place has closed down and been ‎bought up by a consortium of locals. My first impressions on today's visit were good: the place has its own ‎brewery and I had a pint of their stout and a pint of their best bitter. Very nice.

But then I saw ‎the menu. This place seems to cater for people who like to ‎spend way over the going rate on their food. Donít get me wrong Ė there are people who ‎enjoy spending far too much on their food, and if thatís what people want to do, then I respect ‎their choice.

I think I can sum the Farrierís Arms up with one observation. In my entire life I have only ever ‎seen two people smoke a cigarette through a cigarette holder. One of them was in the ‎Farrierís Arms garden this afternoon, and the other was Lady Penelope (out of Thunderbirds). ‎And bearing in mind that Lady Penelope was a puppet, I donít think she counts.‎

Good beer. Poor quality soup and bread rolls. The bread was stale.

A first visit to the revitalised Farriers was made just before Christmas. I last went about five years ago when it showed massive potential but was looking (and feeling) rather tired. Thankfully I can now report that all is well. The community buy-out has breathed new life into the pub - and a lot of investment. Not only has the physical fabric of this wonderful building been renovated but so the has the decor, albeit in a very sensitive and sensible way. Perhaps of greatest interest to BITE readers will be the fact that a small microbrewery has been installed. The intention is, as I understand it, to brew only for the pub, making the Farriers Kent's second brewpub after the Swan at West Peckham. Their 1606, a pleasing malty best bitter, was excellent. Diners can eat in the bar - there is plenty of room for drinkers too, this must be the biggest bar in Kent - or in the restaurant. Food is very good value, if lacking a little quality compared to some other Kentish pubs aiming for the same market. All in, a massive improvement and now a must-visit pub in this part of East Kent.
