The Dolphin, Kings Cross

visited on 29/12/15; alighted the train at Kings X to meet friends in Bloomsbury. 3pm, saw a sign on the Euston road so thought I'd give it a try. What a mistake. The Irish guy behind the bar could barely bring himself to serve me, just mumbled the price of my Kronegbourg. Horse racing on the TV, seemed like Irish 'locals' place. When I left I took my glass back to the bar only to be grunted at. Presumably what an IRA outpost would feel like. I told Mr Jolly behind the bar what a pleasure it had been, which got another grunt. Vile, don't bother!

The Inkerman Arms, Rye Harbour

popped in on Dec 28th, 2 x pints of Old Dairy Copper Top in quick good nick, thought I'd try a toasted sarnie before the walk back up to Rye. £6.95 for the cheese & ham special (paid extra for the onion) what a disappointment. cheap cheese, white bread & about 5g of ham scattered sparsely through! It couldn't have cost more than 50p to put together..... what a rip off. The staff seemed unfamiliar with the till & completely ill at ease behind the bar. all in all a very amateur effort. can't wait for the Conq to re open.

The Star, Romney Marsh

Have long wanted to visit the Star, went on Sunday 29/09 & wasn’t disappointed. Friendly landlord, polite regulars & fantastic location opposite St Marys. Tried the Betty Stoggs which was spot on! Would have had more but was in the car. Bargain £1.50 bar rolls just enough to keep you going as a lunchtime snack. Will be back on foot or by bicycle.

The Rose and Crown, Beckley

5 real ales were on last saturday, the two we tried were both well kept & at £2.70 a pint good value too. standard pub grub at proper prices (burger £2.70 & ploughmans £6) walked up cross country from Rye, the path leads you out opposite the pub. got the bus back which also stops right outside.

The Standard Inn, Rye

This place used to be the heart of Rye, but the Landlord has moved on. Shame.

The Queens Head, Rye

This place compared to how it was this time last year is vastly improved. Clean, no longer smelly, good beer selection (try the English Garden) & good food. Get's very busy on music nights & a great place to spend a Sunday lunch time.

Ye Olde Bell Inn, Rye

Not a bad little pub, great location but the beers nothing special. Seems to get the only chavs in town as regulars. Have been offered out for a fight twice when passing late evening. Quite odd for Rye.

The Union Inn, Rye

Nice little side street pub, good for a quiet pint in the evening. Beware the lunchtime bar maid though. I don't think she's related to the two brothers that seem to run the place, but she does her best to be awkward when you order food & responds with a snarl or a shrug if you dare to complain about the food or ask for chips with your main course instead of mash!
