Certainly one of the better Shepherd Neame pubs I've been to recently (in London). I had a very nice pint of Skinners Betty Stogs. I liked the interior too, a couple of different rooms which made it feel slightly homely. I was there at around 1pm on a Tuesday lunch, it was fairly quiet, but it looked like the food was quite popular. For its location, just outside the city, worth searching out.

Decent Shepherd & Neame pub just outside the city but it does cater for the city types.

Can be a bit sterile and dull inside as the staff are not the most welcoming.

Great choice of ales as you would expect from a S & N pub and is surprisingly cheap for the area.

Seemed a very straight forward ordinary pub. Not very busy but it was mid afternoon. Considering there were not too many customers the girl behind the bar seemed impatient.
Three Shepherd Neame beers on masterbrew, Spitfire and Early Bird. I had the EB and have to say it wasn't the best I've ever drunk.
The TV showed BBC news with the sub titles on.
Clean and tidy but not very welcoming.

A very well kept SN house. It is clean, pleasant, though the regulars seemed a little insular. A good choise of well kept pints from the normal Neame selection, we were forced to depart by the larger drinker with us; apparently he is not too fond of Orange Tree. Worth a visit if in the area.

Nothing really special about this pub except for the pice of the Master Brew which is �3.00. a bargain compared with deepest Kent where its brewed. Why is that?
