Took a bit of finding, but this is a super little pub. But of a tight squeeze if its busy. The beer, all local brews were tasty and varied. Snack food would be good to keep one longer....helpful bar staff

I cannot recommend this pub enough! I have been living in maidstone for 5 years, visiting it for more than I can remember! Though I would visit for a quick drink whilst waiting for friends! The barman(I can assume was the landlord) was so welcoming!...More

A really well looked after historic building with lots of charm and always a friendly atmosphere. The landlord sources local ales which are changed very regularly and are always fresh and clean - none of your stale ale and dirty pipes here! Great pub.

Went here for a couple of drinks on an evening out and very quirky little pub, good atmosphere and idle stop off for some real ales. We will definitely return here for a stop off again before going into town.
