Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Platform 5

Music bar and venue in part of the former Kent Arms, with an in-house radio studio (broadcasting live when I stopped by). Limited seating as you would expect. Also, sadly, no real ale (again as you would expect). Had a quick bottled Doom Bar (£3.50) before catching my train from the nearby railway station (which now has two more platforms following completion of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, so I suppose that this place should really be called Platform 7...).

Steve C left this review about Kent Arms

The Kent arms has been fully refurbished and is now a wine bar a restaurant that goes by the name of Platform 5 which is a reference to the nearby Ashford International Railway Station. Being a wine bar there is no draught beer, but bottled Shepherd Neame ales are available along with bottles of lager with the Peroni coming in at £3.50 a pop. The décor is pretty bland and clinical and the larger right hand side of the pub is used as a restaurant. The tiny little bar is located in the left hand side of the pub where there was a guy playing a guitar. I found the barman and waitresses to be very friendly and I got the feeling that this place hasn’t been open that long.

Wine bars aren’t my scene at all so I’ll not be returning, but I was glad to find this place so close to the station as it was good for killing half an hour between trains.

trevor williams left this review about The Fat Fiddler

I have just going back to this pub as it is under new ownership. This place has improved a lot with drinks the lowest pub price in Ashford with a pub that has a pool table and juke box.
