The Evenhill, Littlebourne

The Evenhill has quite a small bar area but there is a log fire at one end that makes it a warm and sociable place to drink and chat. There is normally 2 or 3 hand pumped cask beers from Shepherd Neame on offer and I took a liking to the “Masterbrew.” The staff are friendly, confident and were quick to respond to one’s needs if one’s glass was empty. We found the food in the restaurant very tasty with good sized portions. We have stayed the Evenhill on a couple occasions and plan to go back.

The Tap and Spile, Guisborough

Inside it's a pretty basic pub and has far too many TV's for my liking but I did have a couple of nice pints of Timothy Taylors Landlord.

The Dog and Bear Hotel, Lenham

An attractive pub in the center of the village. I stayed overnight with my wife, we found all the staff friendly and efficient.

The bar was large but comfortable and the Shepherd Neame hand pumped beers were very drinkable. The was some atmosphere in the bar but this was muted somewhat by the large flat-screen TV which nobody seemed to be watching. The restaurant was also a little disappointing.

The Sun, Faversham

Great value and an enjoyable place to stay. My wife and I arrived mid afternoon for an overnight stay. We were very warmly welcomed and even though the kitchen had closed they were still able to make us sandwiches.

I found all the hand pumped beers in excellent condition, all were very drinkable. That evening in the restaurant we found an interesting menu and dinner was very good. I have stayed in quite a few "Sheps" pubs and the Sun is definitely top of the list.

We try to stay here whenever we are in the area - a good pub with cosy accommodation. An excellent selection of �Sheps Cask Beers� and the wine selection is also very good. A fine full English breakfast is also available but you may have to fight with other guests for the newspapers.

The Orange Tree, Chelmsford

I popped in for lunch here last Monday with the wife in tow. There were 4 hand pumped ales and after some deliberation I plumped for a pint of Maldon Gold whilst ordering Steak and Ale Pie. I must say that the service from the nice blond young lady behind the bar was good and friendly.

Because �The Pie� had not arrived when the first pint ordered was finished I had to order another, which tasted even better than the first. Bye the time �The Pies� did arrived the wife had the same with different potatoes, my glass was almost empty and the wife was demanding another red wine which she said was a way above your standard pub red, she can�t remember the wines name but describes it as �a nice warm red� So a re-order was necessary.

After 3 pints and the Steak and Ale Pies we both lost much of the urge for shopping which was the point of going to Chelmsford so going to this pub saved me a great deal on Monday, for which I must thank them.

The quality of the food here is good but I did hear the landlord say that if you want to dine on Sunday it is very wise to book.

The Bulls Head, Greenmount

This pub has changed unbelievably over the last few years.

I was there twice last week very good value food and hand pumped "Marston's Pedigree" to drink which was very good.

The Help Me Through Inn, Bury

This is a great little pub where people talk to each other. It has an very friendly atmosphere and you are made welcome by the Staff and Customers

There are two hand pumped draught beers by Thwaites. "Original" bitter, which was in excellent condition and "Wainwright" which can best be described as superb.

I had not been in this pub for over 25 years and it's as good now as it was then.
