A lovely pub with a gran facade and even better-looking inside. There are five hand pumps on the bar, with a variety of beers from many parts. I had halves of Muirhouse Magnum Mild (which had come almost as far as I had), Tonbridge Golden Rule and Kent Brewers Reserve. All were in good condition, though the latter two were not really to my taste. The landlady was friendly and talkative, though after a while this began to grate a little, as she only ever talked about herself; there's a skill in changing the conversation to something your customers might be interested in, but she didn't have it.

A truly wonderful and eclectic Victorian pub, a non-Shepherd and Neame house, near Faversham Station but most definitely not a high street boozer. The interior is rambling, there is a small terrace at the back with a nice patio garden, some tasteful Victorian pornography in the gents', and the bric-a-brac adorning the walls has some genuine historic interest. There is also a function room. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming, the atmosphere is enhanced by the wooden floors and a small open fire, and the locals are an interesting and friendly bunch. There is even a friendly trainee pub cat. The pub is popular with CAMRA as well as normal people and it has a regular GBG entry. Bizarrely, it is also home to the Timothy Taylor Appreciation Society. There were five ales on including a proper beer from Czech Republic – I had a pint of Hopdaemon something-or-other that has been rebranded for the pub and found it to be a truly excellent pint. A must for a town crawl and most definitely worth breaking a rail journey for.

A fantastic,proper pub. Expertly run with fine beers and a wonderful atmosphere. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Faversahm, if only to see what pubs without Sheps are like!
