Previously The Victory, this is now a Shepherd and Neame house. It sits at the top of a hill in an Edwardian residential area, a bit off the beaten track. It is a well-kept pleasant town pub, surprisingly modern inside, welcoming and friendly. The bar is carpeted and the décor recent and fresh. It's homely, there are some rather unobtrusive nicknacks on shelves and the bar is well stocked. The bench seats haven't been slashed and the staff are pleasant. The only ale on was Masterbrew which wasn't at its best but still drinkable. It's a good local pub full of decent people, and while I wouldn't come out of my way to come here, I would be happy to drop in if in the area

The General at Sea is a Shepherd Neame pub located in the back streets of Chatham. It was very quiet during my recent late Monday afternoon visit, but then most pubs are at this time in the week. The bar supports the usual SN draught and two of the hand pumps were unused leaving Master Brew available from the other two. There is a pool table, dart board and plasma screen that was switched off. I didn’t spot any Sky Sports advertised, but there was some background music playing off the jukebox.

I found the service to be friendly enough, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit as I’m not the biggest fan of Shepherd Neame beers.
