The Lantern in Dover

Food-led establishment hidden away in the hamlet of Martin, but benefitting from having a railway station just down the road at the equally small (but pub-less) settlement of Martin Mill. Due to Covid-19 restrictions I was unable to view the interior (which I understand to have been carefully renovated in recent times), but this pub had been recommended for its split-level beer garden and this certainly doesn't disappoint. It features a modest patio terrace but this is supplemented by plenty of tables scattered around the very attractive surroundings of the much larger lower grassed area. Better still, this is a bit of a sun-trap too, offering shelter from a cool afternoon breeze. The only blip was that the cask ale supplies had yet to arrive following the end of lockdown, but my pint of keg Bombay Social IPA from the very local Angels & Demons brewery (£4.80) was still very welcome.

First Pub review of 2021 :-)

Perfect spot by the Thames, with a large garden, where they have installed an outside bar and an outside kitchen.

Plenty of staff milling around - so service was prompt but not necessarily effecient.

The beer: A choice of Doombar or Otter. Unfortunately served in plastic glasses - which I felt was unnecessary.

The food: Expensive. I ordered a steak and it was served with just fries, on a paper plate and get this - with a wooden knife and fork.

I asked the waitress if she could get me a steak knife - and get this. She said No!

I asked her to fetch the manager or someone who could make a reasonable decision and she said she would and then buggered off!

I'm sure these are teething problems but left me feeling that I didnt receive value for money.

They need to rethink the disposable serving ware.

This might seem like flogging a dead horse (better than flogging a live one, tbf), but I’ve got nearly 20 useable photos, which I reckon means TWO (2) post from Clay Cross. So don’t worry if Part 1 is a bit “pubby”, as Part 2 will clear up Cobs v ....

I have had some excellent local beers in this first week of pub gardens opening: Tapped Mojo 3.6% brewed and drunk at (or just outside the front door of) the Sheffield Tap Kelham Island Best Bitter 3.8% brewed next door to and drunk in the garden of the Fat Cat Loxley Halliday Bitter 4.0% brewed just on the edge of Sheffield and drunk in the car park of the Raven Inn and not local but still excellent, Marble Bitter 4.0% drunk in the small back yard of the Beer House on Ecclesall Road, having made the journey over the Pennines from Manchester. Very hard to choose a favourite from those four. Marble has never been a favourite of mine, partly because of an early experience of a beer that tasted of lemon squash, so this Bitter was a bit of an eye-opener for me. It's not as bitter or as idiosyncratic as Boddingtons, which I think it is modelled on, but it was very good. However, for sheer quality and excellent condition, the Kelham Island Best is, by a nostril, my beer of the week.
