I can only guess what the Smack was like when Roger visited, but judging by the photos it would perhaps have been more colourful and jollier than it is now, post-refurbishment.

That said, our pints of Masterbrew were decent, and the staff were welcoming.

Maybe it's best just to let well alone sometimes (eh, Mr. Cameron?)

An improvement in price compared to the Pearson. A 'bargain ' at only £1.90 a half pint of flat Bishops Finger.

A backstreet pub of some age, the bar divides the pub across the middle with the rear area being larger than the front. Boarded flooring, wooden benches form the majority of the seating, an open exposed brick fireplace has a log fire and with the pub name marked life ring above being a nice feature. There is a garden which looked nice. One area of seating is ended by a range of oars upright in a stand. Bottles and jars on a high shelf, there is a nice old clock and a selection of board games. Four handpumps, only two were on this Monday, Shepherd Neame Masterbrew and a cider from Thatchers. The beer was in mediocre condition being polite. A nice pub and building but punching below its weight on admittedly this one-off visit.
