Sandwich is an excellent, historical place to go on a crawl - there are nine licensed premises, all within five minutes walk of each other, three of them within 50yds of each other at the Market Place, and none of them further than ten minutes walk from the station.

Just a quick mention of the "George and Dragon" in Fisher Street before moving on to "The Greyhound".

The George & Dragon dates back to the reign of Henry VII. It has been resurrected from near-dereliction by the ex-landlord of the St Crispin Inn ( q.v. ), and has an excellent menu. It's not particularly cheap, but you get what you pay for, and if you are on expenses and work for Pfizer, then what the heck. The smallish bar area is well stocked and I enjoyed a pint of Harvey's Best in superb condition at 2.60. Two other ales were available - Directors' and Master Spew.

I hadn't been to The Greyhound for 30 years until my visit. It hasn't really changed. It still doesn't look very welcoming from the outside, but don't let that put you off. It still retains the dark wooden panelling up to picture rail height, which tends to make the pub appear gloomy. The pool table has long gone and replaced by a bar billiards table.

Service was prompt and friendly, and of the three engines on the bar, only Shep's Master Spew was available. A rather tired pint but only 2.20 - cheap for Sandwich. A fair selection of early afternoon punters, mainly middle aged people with their shopping, and a brace of young mums! I soon fell into conversation with a lady who remembered me from 15 years ago, some advice I offered at the time but she declined to accept, and consequently ended up 17,000 out of pocket.

I like this pub, which has evidence of being used by Camra members, and would have rated it higher had it not been for the solitary "tired" ale available.
