Getting into the Standard is a bit like getting into Fort Knox right now. We had tried to visit on the bank holiday weekend, but were turned away.

Having said that, the pub is making the most of the very limited outdoor space it has available, given the current Covid restrictions (no indoor drinking or eating).

The only outdoor space is a narrow yard at the rear. The pub have created 6 covered booths, which have to be booked in advance. Whilst we'd attempted to book one of the booths over the bank holiday weekend, we had been advised that we were fully booked.

We did originally try on spec on the Sunday evening and they did have a table available at 9pm. But this was a little too late for our liking. As such, despite initially being told they were also fully booked on a Thursday lunchtime, I managed to persuade them to let me pop in for a swift half. Unfortunately, the assumption is that each group will occupy each booth for a couple of hours. I managed to get in at midday before most lunchtime bookings had arrived. Indeed, there was only one other booth occupied by a couple when it was time for me to move on.

Just 2 ales were on - Romney Marsh Romney Best Bitter & Three Legs Oatmeal Bullion. I had the latter, which was in a good condition.

The interior looks fairly plan, with lots of dark wood. Although, some of the furniture may currently have been removed.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Standard Inn

This pub had a major refurbishment in 2014 and reopened in the Nov of that year. We called in here on a Thursday Eve and the place was full, still we did manage to get a couple of seats around an old beer barrel near the front entrance, which was fine and somewhere to place your beers. The interior had lots of exposed beams and undressed brick on display. The ceilings were low as expected for a building of this age, parts of which date back to the 15th Century. Four pumps along the bar front offered Old Dairy Farmer Ale, Romney Session IPA, Three Legs IPA and Pale. I went for the Romney Session IPA, which was excellent. We didn't stay here long as the pub was too hot inside and hadn't much ventilation. I would revisit, but at a quieter time.

The Standard Inn was empty during my visit on Tuesday evening; which wasn’t surprising as the barman/manager was watching Sewing Bee hosted by Claudia Winkleman on the plasma screen that adorns the bar. More interestingly the bar also supports four hand pumps, but two of these were unused and one was drawing Old Rosie cider so the only ale option was Harvey’s Best. There was also a very limited standard draught selection of Becks Vier, Guinness and Stowford Press cider.
The bar is located along the right hand wall and facing it on the left is some seating and a couple of fireplaces that were fully operational during my visit.
There are some steps at the rear that lead down to the backyard where there is an outhouse that contains the toilets. Beyond there is a small paved area that houses some picnic tables.

This is a nice cosy little pub that would be much improved with the removal of the TV off the bar and some decent ale. I would give this place another go as I think that the building warrants it, but I must say that I wasn’t very impressed with my first visit.
