Nice rowdy place if thats your kind of thing

The Dolphin Inn, Broadstairs

The ultimate fight pub in Broadstairs, hardened drinkers only enter here

24 Mar 2010 14:37

The Pier Hotel, Upnor

Superb friendly pub with excellent food

24 Mar 2010 14:36

The Five Bells, Hoo

If you like a nice intimidating atmosphere and gangs hanging around outside the pub singing and harrasing passers by this is your place

Ye Olde Leather Bottle, Northfleet

An OK pub. One of the better ones in Northfleet.

17 Jan 2010 20:27

The Rose, Northfleet

Pleasant enough pub but often frequented by hardened drinkers.

17 Jan 2010 20:26

The Plough, Northfleet

Set to the back drop of a huge council estate this is one best avoided. Reputation locally for violence and frequented by football fans

17 Jan 2010 20:25

The Edinburgh Castle, Northfleet

A tough, rough local where hardened drinkers hang out. Avoid if possible

17 Jan 2010 20:24

The Earl Grey, Northfleet

Nice little local off the main road in Northfleet. A cut above the other pubs locally

17 Jan 2010 20:23

Best avoided as very initimidating with groups of chavs in every corner of the pub and is well known locally for all the wrong reasons. Beer limited.

17 Jan 2010 20:23

Dover Castle, Northfleet

Set in the heart of a council estate this pub is quiet during the week and a friendly welcome can be assured. However when entertainment arrives, then the pub becomes totally different. Reasonable range of beers.

17 Jan 2010 20:22

The Coopers Arms, Northfleet

Now shut

17 Jan 2010 20:20

Really tasteful and understated pub in the suburbs around the town centre. Friendly bar staff add to the sense of fun in this pub

17 Jan 2010 20:14

The Billet, Sittingbourne

Lurid refit recently and seems to attract the more undesirable crowd nowadays

17 Jan 2010 18:02

There is plenty of potential trouble at this corner pub. Intimidating atmopshere coupled with a run down appearance mean this is one for the hardened regulars only

17 Jan 2010 17:46

The Prince Of Guinea, Gillingham

Chas and Dave played this venue on new years day 2008. Beer is OK and staff friendly enough

17 Jan 2010 17:40

The Monarch, Gillingham

If you are looking for trouble then this is the place for you. I pass this place every morning around 9am and there are always a large collection of hardened drinkers hanging around outside having a fag and therefore being extremely intimidating. I have ventured into the place once and witnessed a fight. A poor range of beers and an intimidating atmosphere made this an extremely unappealing place. Avoid at all costs.

Little Crown, Chatham

17 Jan 2010 17:10

The Old Lord Raglan, Chatham

Not bad for its location

17 Jan 2010 17:09

The Old Ash Tree, Chatham

A nice large pub with a good range of beers. Can be a little busy at times and loud but well worth a visit

17 Jan 2010 17:08

O'Connells Bar, Chatham

A real one to avoid this, known for trouble locally

17 Jan 2010 17:07

Another rough pub on just off Star Hill. Having played Darts there many years ago I know it can be intimidating for locals

17 Jan 2010 16:57

17 Jan 2010 14:05

Britannia Bar Cafe, Rochester

A strange little place situated on a dingy part of the high street. Well worth going inside however as friendly and welcoming

17 Jan 2010 14:03

The Stag, Wainscott

The Horseshoe, Strood

Has just shut down

17 Jan 2010 13:52

The Coach and Horses, Strood

Nice Victorian era pub. Ocasional Quiz night, OK for a rainy day.

17 Jan 2010 13:50

The Cecil Arms, Strood

17 Jan 2010 13:49

The Bulls Head, Strood

This pub has been open and shut regularly, when open then was not the bst

17 Jan 2010 13:47

17 Jan 2010 13:37

The Tudor Rose, Upper Upnor

Great local. Always serves excellent beer and friendly service.Monday every two weeks provides an informal and free fun quiz. Great pub

17 Jan 2010 13:35

Kings Arms, Upper Upnor

Winning the CAMRA award for best beer in Medway was a bit of a smoke screen as the main appeal of this pub for locals is the excellent food that is served. Only usually heeving when a party is in full swing it is a nice quiet drinker on a Friday night. However some of the ales are not of the highest quality

17 Jan 2010 13:30

Windmill, Hoo

This is the best pub in Hoo by far. A friendly atmosphere and a solid group of regulars make this a nice place for a quiet drink. Good beer and excellent food make it a must out on the Peninsula

17 Jan 2010 13:27

Chequers Inn, Hoo

The Chequers is a strange pub, as during the day is extremely friendly and welcoming and the beer is of good quality, however on evenings such as Quiz nights turns into a rather hostile place with large groups of drinkers making a noise and ruining the ambience
