Sadly this pub appears to have died. Boarded up and awaiting sale. Unlikely to be a pub ever again.

Sad to say, but this pub - both the business and the institution- is moribund. The outside is shabby and in a state of severe disrepair - I hadn't realised it was open even until I saw a hand-written piece of paper advertising the fact.

This criticism isn't intended to offend - the landlord is a 78-year-old widow who is himself disabled (he needs a zimmer frame to move around behind the bar; you feel guilty asking him to serve you). The presence of bedding and medical supplies in what was once probably a very grand bar suggests life is not normal here. The strong smell of paint suggests he is trying to keep things going, but the general air is one of decay. The only other customers I saw were a group of people who might not have been comfortable in any of the other pubs in Lydd and who could not have travelled elsewhere. All that aside, the landlord is friendly, good company and a genuinely nice person with a great tale to tell of his previous life.

It saddens me to say it, especially in the current economic climate, but it really is time for this fine gentleman to cut his losses, sell up and move on. Whether the pub could be saved by an investor is debatable, but clinging on like this is just protracting the agony.

There was no real ale on so I stuck with bottled beers. I really can't, in all honesty, recommend this pub for anything as it currently stands.
