This ‘Spoons’ has a large open bar area, and upon arrival looking around at the inebriated parents with push chairs, it’s welcoming to children.
There is a regularly changing selection of real ales. On my recent visit I was intrigued by the taste of a ‘Yachtsman’ and also of ‘Butcombe’.
I find that my work colleagues and I often find ourselves here for the weekly ‘Pub Quiz’ this is every Monday at 1930. There are a wide variety of questions of varying difficulty. There is also an intermission half way through for one to seek sustenance from the wide selection of microwavable food on the menu, for which 20% discount is offered to quiz participants.
The intermission is often the most exciting part of the quiz night. Usually filled with the screeching arguments of unemployed couples who have frequented the bar since opening that morning. But don’t let that put you off this is a very secure public house as the Kent Constabulary often patrol and remove patrons.
If you are looking for a wide selection of hand pumped ales, while you participate in a quiz feeling like you are sat in the audience of Jeremy Kyle this is the place for you.

First pub of a 4 pub tick in Maidstone on Saturday afternoon.

Started off in this large 'spoons very close to Maidstone East station.

Busy on Saturday lunchtime with a mix of regulars, locals and football fans (Maidstone United were at home)

10 hand pumps offering 9 beers as 2 pumps had Ruddles on. My pint of Springhead's, The Leveller @ 4.8% was a decent poured pint but it's not a great beer.

Rugby Union (Italy vs England) came on the television so the curtains were drawn and volume increased, this was my cue to leave and walk to the Pilot.

I like the Society Rooms and regularly meet a mate here every Thursday afternoon for a couple of pints before wandering up the road to the Flower Pot. At £1.99 the beer is cheap and always in perfect condition. The place is clean and quiet (during the afternoon) although there's always a small group of noisy, middle-aged knuckledraggers with a child's pushchair to spoil things. Lacking in atmosphere? Well with very large plate glass windows - it used to be a furniture store in a previous life - it's never going to be cosy and intimate - but it's very popular and if having a pleasant chat with a friend is your thing, this is one of the better pubs in town.

Modern-looking Spoons that we were lucky to get a seat at early Friday evening, but worth persevering as the Whitstable Stout was very good, and staff friendly as plentiful (my usual Spoons experience, to be fair). Food was adequate.

Large open plan JDW that gets very busy.
Next to station (West) and not far from the footy ground.
There’s a game on today so the replica shirts are gathering.
All guest ales £1.99 a pint
