I passed this likely looking back street local before opening time, and by coincidence had it recommended to me by the first person I talked to (we were waiting outside the Butchers Arms for it to open, but that's another story), so decided to call in for a last beer later that day. It's a fairly narrow room with bare boards, bench seating around the walls and stools at the bar. A group of locals were gathered around the landlady at the bar, partly obscuring the seven real ales on the hand pumps at the part of the bar where they were sat. I went for the Musket Flintlock 4.2% (brewed in Maidstone) and settled down away from the bar. The other beers were from Brockley, Blackjack, Red Willow, Otter, Gadds and Padstow.

As Ian says below, the landlady really knows her job - her husband pours the drinks and she entertains the customers. She has a knack of keeping the conversation flowing and even brought me into a discussion about vegan food, having no idea that I was a vegetarian: it was just the way she draws her customers together. I left promising to return if I'm ever in Canterbury again.

GBG 2019 Entry. Back Street Terraced locals boozer just out the City Walls. You have to go looking for it.

Lovely greeting from the landlady. So easy to provide but so rare.

Six or so real ales on. Played safe with a decent Adnams Ghost Ship.

A good traditional pub, which luckily enough was open on our Monday lunchtime visit. We were greeted by a friendly and bubbly landlady/owner who made us most welcome and we were soon included in the banter with the locals. The owner, Katrina, told us that she has drank in the pub from the days when she was a young student and quoted back then to the previous owners that if they ever sold the pub could she buy it, well here she is the new owner.
The pub did have a lot of nationals on handpump, where she explained that her regular ale drinkers choose what beers they want each week. Unfortunately for us, we missed out on two from the Old Dairy Brewery, which were on last week. Seven ales on pump, so we went for Oakham Helter Skelter and Skinners Big Knocker, which got some laughs from the locals.
