A Shepherd Neame tied house,so be prepared to suffer their dull ales if you venture inside.The ground floor will have a lot of vertical drinking,there is a shelf to the rear.Downstairs is a wine bar ,while upstairs there is a dining room.Despite lots of wood panelling ,the interior felt functional rather than interesting.
There are 7 handpumps,some unused,some doubled up meaning a choice on my visit of Masterbrew,Bishops Finger,Crossfire and Whitstable Pale (A dull brew and NBSS 1.5 )There was inefficiency amongst the bar staff who seemed unable to serve folk in order.A till problem then brought serving to a virtual halt.
It's a bit of a scum when busy.Unless you really like Shepherd Neame beer,one to avoid in future.

Went in this donkey's years ago and honestly couldn't remember a thing. Shepherd Neame pub with 7 hand pumps, one not in use. Bishop's Finger went down well. Also a cellar bar and a first floor restaurant. Would return.

As described, there are 2 bars in this fine Shepherd and Neame pub, the one upstairs mainly for drinkers, with its array of 6 handpumps on the bar, and the basement kept for diners, although it is possible, as we proved, to eat upstairs if you can find somewhere to sit. Deciding which bar to eat in can result in a comedy situation as the two barmen bounce you back and forth. Several tourists wandered in and out while we were there, obviously confused about what a pub is, but the majority of the clients were indigenous and enjoyed, rather than endured, their time here. I had a portion of fish and chips which was served, rather naffly, on a piece of driftwood and a paper bag, but the pint of Whitstable Pale Ale with which I washed it down was excellent. It’s a surprisingly good pub given its location, and I’d be happy to return any time.
