Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Ship Centurion

Hadn't Armenius been dead for over 2000 years, he might be put out that his name has disappeared from the branding (although an image remains as a figurehead on the sign). Anyway, this is a surprisingly old-fashioned town centre boozer rather than a tourist haunt. Traditional furniture and decor throughout the 'U'-shaped interior, including some photographs of local historical interest and a Laurel & Hardy display. Five real ales on handpump: Ruddles County, two from Adnams - Southwold and Freewheel (£3.30) - Old Golden Hen and Young's Special.

One of the more unusual named pubs I have been in, the origins are explained below. A carpeted room which winds around a central bar, there is a bar billiards table to the rear left where the room steps up slightly. A comfortable pub with regular seating, banquettes and Singer and Britannia tables. Some interesting décor, loads of Laurel and Hardy related items, reason unknown, pictures of local storms in 1897, model ships on the window cills and CAMRA awards above the bar. TVs muted with Sky Sports News.
A decent if not pulse racing beer selection, Adnam's Southwold Bitter, Directors, Pig and Porter Pale Ale, GK XXX Mild and also Elgood's Mild.

Aqualung . left this review about Ship Centurion Arminius

This place is more than well described below and probably hasn't changed that much since the last review. It's still a single room carpeted throughout with an island bar and a large TV showing Sport without the sound. On my Thursday midday visit it seemed very much to be a local for the older folk of Whitstable.
The bar now has five hand pumps which had Adnam's Bitter, Ghost Ship & Lighthouse, Elgood's Black Dog Mild and Old Speckled Hen. I must have hit this on a bad day as the GBG says it normally sells a local Kent beer. I went for the Ghost Ship (£3.20) which was in excellent condition.
I thought this was a reasonable enough pub but on the day the rather mainstream beer choice let it down.
