A slightly disreputable looking pub from the outside, in a neglected and poor area of Medway, and with little sign of activity. The place, despite the unpromising exterior, is open, and isn't that unpleasant. There are two external doors next to each other leading to two distinct bars. The left door leads to a small bar that contains an unused handpump. The other door leads to the main bar, which has been modernised, with several rooms knocked through in an attempt to create an open and modern interior. It almost works, though mainly creates a feeling of tangled and confused space with no identity. The immediate space into which you enter contains a modern lounge area with modern leather sofas and a low table - this is almost chic and pleasant. The remaining space is echoing and unwelcoming, and contains a long, narrow, corridor like space that is used at one end by the local dart team, while the other just appears to exists as empty space.

The beer selection on tap is keg lager -Stella, Kronenbourg and Fosters - and a keg ale - John Smiths smooth. There are tasty and good value filled rolls for 1.

The place is filled with TV screens which play in the background at the same time as occasional loud music. There are live music nights. Customers in the main bar are mainly young men. While the small bat attracts a few older people.

It's a clean enough place. While it has little to recommend it, there is nothing offensive, and it would work quite well as a locals local.

CLOSED - Unlikely to re-open according to local reports. Had a good atmosphere when open but unpredictable - one night you could make new friends and have a great time, the next, a punch in the gob.
