Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Maidens Head

One of the few remaining pubs on Wincheap approach to the city centre, this one must be quite old but has been given something of a semi-modern makeover inside (although some of the exposed timberwork in the opened out interior remains). The front part of what is now a L-shaped layout has lounge-style furniture (sofas, low tables, etc.) but the rear section is more traditional. Just London Pride (£4.30) available from a pair of handpumps, and nothing much of interest on the keg taps either.

A 15th Century pub with a car park and paved garden at the side and rear, though the views aren’t great. Inside, the single large bar is L-shaped and has an open fire at the apex. There is a dartboard at one end next to a comfy seating area. They host regular social events, and they have a good local clientele. The staff are quite welcoming, including the pub cat. Food looks home made, and they have a range of pizzas to supplement the standard pub grub mean, though the presence of a large Deliveroo sticker on the window made us wonder how ‘home made’ some of the dishes are. Only one ale on, Pride, which was drinkable. Worth dropping in for a pint as it’s close to the railway station.
