Eh! the place already has a fitted oche - first one I've ever seen in a pub. They also serve Courage Best so the place is a winner for me.

This is one of my locals, the pub has a wide choice of lager and hand pumped ales (which change on a regular basis). All lagers are served from those ice cold pumps, Stella, Kronenbourg, Fosters, Carling, Becks Vier as well as Extra Cold Guiness and Strongbow. Courage best on pump is available as well as a selection of very good hand pumped ales which seem to change every so often, lately the have been Hook Norton Hooky Bitter, Directors, Deuchars amongst others.

Food is served throughout the week until the evening, which is nice and very reasonably priced and normally the landlady does a home cooked special for under a fiver! These normally consist of English traditionals like liver n bacon, beef stew, lamp hotpot as well as lasagne and chilli.

On saturdays traditional pie mash n liquor is served (catering for all the londoners that now live in kent) and Sundays tradional Sunday roast is available, again all at very reasonable prices. Its always busy on sundays!

The main feature of the pub is the lovely pub garden which is very lively if the sun is out! Inside the pub there are two pool tables, three dart boards and fusbal table.Oh and a jukebox

Although this is locals pub I would reccomend a visit to anyone. The staff are friendly, the beer is good and the food is even better....

Spurred on by the previous report of the presence of the wonderful Deuchars, I paid my first visit since the (not so) big (now) guy left to check out the changes. I can confirm the introduction of 2 Real Ales so thatís at least 2 steps in the right direction. The standard Ale was off (looked like Courage Best from reversed the pump clip) but the guest beer last night was a most welcome Hooky and of a perfectly drinkable quality. The interior is still rather bland and nothing to write home about with much of the rear taken up by the 2 pool tables and a table football game. The large trophy cabinet is still bulging which suggests they still take things pretty seriously on the games front. The best feature remains the beer garden in which I could happily whittle away a pleasant hour or so now that the beers are back in town. Whilst I have never encountered any problems here, some of the customer base can be a bit on the raucous side and not of a particularly endearing nature.

Situated next to a Wicks DIY store, The Rose is one for the locals certainly, but friendly enough on my evening visit last Monday (20th Jan). Famed by (former Landlord), darts ace Andy Forman, it was not surprising that a couple of dartboards featured. In fact, the several conversations I over heard all seemed to be relate to the sport. A couple of pool tables were present, in an otherwise, rather bare pub. There is however, a large enough beer garden and patio. Two ales were pleasingly on offer, Deuchers IPA and a guest. Not an outstanding pub by any means, yet one that serves its regulars well.
