Well I have been back numerous times because of our kit car club evenings and nothing has changed. The 'landlord' is in fact a barman. The beer is always anywhere between slighty not right and vile. I will not drink draught beer here. Even the Guinness is odd in that it comes in a can with a widget, and get's vibrated on a tiny chilled pad. I have even complained to Shepherd Neame as the quality , or lack of it, of their beers can only do harm to the breweries reputation but nothing has changed. I now rarely go to the club nights. Never in many years of drinking have I come across a pub with such consistently bad beer. 0/10.

I really hate to write negative comments about any pub. Publicans have a difficult time as it is without unhelpful remarks made by customers. However something happened last night which reminded me of the 'bad old days' and when buying a pint was a lottery. Our car club met at this pub for the first time last night. First impressions? Attractive yet isolated building, clean and tidy. with a blazing log fire. Beer? Only one solitary handpump with Sheps 'Master Brew' available. No 'Spitfire' or 'Late Red'. A customer ahead of me complained his beer was flat although it had a head alright. Our two pints arrived and - OMG - I could smell it was off. The pungent vinegary smell was clear to anybody. As the landlord was putting on another barrel, we waited. He returned to the bar and pulled a pint or so through then served up two new pints. It was no better. "It must be. I've just changed the barrel" he replied. When I asked if he's drunk any, he agreed he hadn't. Then began a comical spell as he brought small glasses of new beer along, not one was drinkable. "There's not much wrong with that" he responded. The three of us plumped for Guinness instead.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but customers should be the 'test pilots' for real ale? It's the landlord's job to know his beer and to regularly test it to make sure it's in top notch condition. If he was a chef and I had complained about the food, would the chef have stood his ground saying the butcher had bought the meat only that morning, and then bring small portions of the food to the table for me to taste. That's NOT MY JOB, is it?

Our club will be meeting there every month so in future I'll have to taste any pint with suspicion. I thought we'd got away from poorly kept beer.

Restaurant & hotel but with a traditional pub bar at the front and a decent beer garden. Pleasant place. Two casks - MasterBrew and Landlord. First stop on the Shepherd Neame Charity Walk 2008.
