Rambling JDW, that is several buildings knocked into one - allowing for all sorts of nooks and crannies.

Massive queue of teenage Tim fans trying to get in at 10pm on a Saturday night. As residents, we were able to bypass this nonsense, as you wouldn't catch me queuing for much.

Standard Pub - but as a hotel, the rooms exceeded expectations massively. Decor, style and facilities worthy of a much more expensive hotel. Lovely.

Large Wetherspoons with hotel attached and even more emphasis on food than normal, with a large side room mainly populated by diners and a room at the back with a kitchen counter even more so. Still plenty of room for drinkers at the front though, and it also benefits from a large and very-tabled garden at the back, although this suffers a bit from traffic noise. The ale range included several Kentish beers, mainly from Wantsum, alongside the usual suspects and condition was good.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Golden Lion (JD Wetherspoon)

Ten Pumps with nine ales, some doubled up and 1 cider. We went for the Oakham Inferno. There was a Spoons beer Festival on, with a few more choices from Hilden and Bru. This was a comfortable and respectable pub with a grey and turquoise colour scheme.
