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

Historic pub at the eastern end of the High Street which still retains some character within the twin-bar interior. The furniture and decor is quite basic throughout, but that probably aligns with the customer base looking for a value pint from the no-nonsense landlady so none the worse for that. Three of five handpumps in use, dispensing Courage Best (£2.80), Spitfire and Old Peculier.

Originally a 15th Century alehouse and previously called the Crown and Anchor, this high street pub is described below. It is very much a locals' pub, and we didn't really feel that welcome; the staff were fairly bitter-faced, while the regulars just looked at us grumpily when we sat down. Children roam free, and one door was partially blocked by a large pram and its large owner. The raised dining area at the rear was closed off, making seating more difficult than it needed to be. There were gaming machines and a jukebox pushing out noise pollution. Ales on draft were Old Peculiar, Hobgoblin, Spitfire and Courage Best. I had the Spitfire, and it was drinkable but not brilliant.

The Wat Tyler is a nice looking pub that is close to the Clipper.
There is no front door to the pub,the entrance is on the right side.
Once inside there is a narrow oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the room is bare boarded and the bar is on the mid left side,the seating is pew seats and normal tables and chairs,the rear area is up one step and not in use on my visit.
There were five real ales on,i had a drink of Shepherd Neame Master Brew which went down very well,the other beers were Shepherd Neame Spitfire and Spitfire Gold,Theakston Old Peculiar and Hobgoblin.
There was background music playing and the pub was very busy on my Saturday afternoon visit.
I quite liked this pub,one i could stay in for a few.
