Four handpumps on the counter - a bank of two apparently unused, and of the other bank of two one had a Hobgoblin clip reversed with the other dispensing Doom Bar (£3.50 a pint). They do food, but I didn't see a menu.

The main room on the corner is dominated by a pool table in the middle of the room; there were a couple of small tables by the window on the left, but with sofas occupying the sides of the room everywhere else. One didn't have a table in front of it, which I thought degraded its usefulness even further. There were a couple of standard tables in the narrow area in front of the counter, leading to a further area where all tables were laid for diners. This in turn led to another room with more tables laid for diners. I would expect that after the holiday season the balance of available seating might swing in favour of drinkers, as there just cannot be a call for such a large dining area out of season. There's some brewer's rustic inside, as well as a brick built bar counter.

When I was in at about 8.00 PM on a Tuesday evening there were a couple of family groups, complete with kids, around the pool table area, plus a couple of blokes sitting at the bar - and yours truly sitting at one of the normal tables. There's now a fair bit of outside seating at the front of the pub, and they had set up a trampoline presumably for kids' use.

This is a fairly ordinary pub. But it is the best pub in Greatstone following the sad demise of the Seahorse down the road a couple of years ago. I will no doubt visit again at some stage, as it's the only pub within easy walking distance of my sister's house.

Once again I have found The Jolly Fisherman devoid of real ale and charm. Its 1960s seaside feel reminds me of what I hated so much about that decade. I didn't feel welcome, the staff weren't friendly and there was nothign about the place that made me want to stay for more than one pint. It's a pity, as there is a ot ofpotential here; the location, building and area are all fine, it's just this pub that isn't.
