Unfortunately you will be out of luck at the Rock & Fountain too.
The Chef there ended up between a Rock & a hard place.

Yes I was a regular visitor on Sundays to this locationback in the mid 60's
When the new The new landlord tookover I was refused a top up on an excessive guinness pint.I never went back.He was the most grumpy individual I have ever met with one of todays entreprenures the location was ideal for a "gastropub" Instead its sold off probably for re-development

Unfortunately this pub has now closed. Try the Rock & Fountain if you are in this area.

Couldn't agree more about the owner, he has no idea of how to deal with the public. But it is a shame that it is closing as the loss of another pub is a great shame especially as this location is excellent.

Suggest anyone in this area should try the Rock & Fountain just down the road.

The Kent Hounds will be closing down in July 2005, due to the retirement of the tenant who has been here since the mid 1970s. The interior is a den of key ring holders (there is name given to this affliction), there are over 3,000 hanging on the walls and ceiling. The place hasn't been decorated for over 15 years by the look of it. It's not surprising it is so quiet, although a car is essential in reaching it as it is well tucked away off the beaten track.
The publican is probably the most miserable and unwelcoming old man you are ever likely to encounter on entering a pub. He makes it seem like you have intruded into his private living room. The food is very basic and instead of coming out to the lovely beer garden he waves to ask you to collect it. He won't be missed but the loss of another pub in good location is sad to see. Harveys and Kentish Ale on draught.
