Real Ale Ray left this review about The Laughing Barrel

This newly opened micropub and pharmacy shares the same building of what was once a former estate pub named the Northdown. A local sitting alongside us at the bar, told us that the Northdown was a decent pub, and that it was owned by Enterprise Inns, costs went up, trade slowed down, so it closed down.
The interior of this new micro was modern, with white painted walls, a grey painted floor and lots of brightly painted pictures around the walls by a local artist. Three ales on, Old Dairy Blue Top, Wantsum Imperium and Whitstable Oyster Stout. There was also a choice of six locally produced ciders.
I went for the Old Dairy, which was in excellent shape and also tried the Wantsum, which was a very interesting tasting beer.
