Steve C left this review about The Ashes

The Ashes advertises itself as a sports bar so I wasn’t surprised to find a couple of projector screens and numerous plasma screens showing the Ryder Cup via Sky Sports during my visit last Friday. The bar faces the front of the pub and some steps to the right of the bar lead down to a room that houses two pool tables and a test your strength boxing machine. To the left of the bar some steps descend into a conservatory where access is gained to a rear paved beer garden full of picnic tables.
The bar is stocked with standard draught and Amstel is also available, but the lone hand pump was unused. There is also an extensive cocktail menu.

I found this place to be characterless and I think that there are far more comfortable places in Maidstone to watch some sport.

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

Only went in out of curiousity, and found a characterless 'sports bar' with disinterested staff and no proper beer. Had to make do with a quick pint of John Smiths Extra Smooth before the hordes arrived for some football match (or, in fact, two football matches randomly distributed around the various large TV screens in a rather disconcerting way).
