Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Limes

Refurbished Shepherd Neame pub, with a pared-down front bar, three small seating areas further back, followed by a restaurant and a function room upstairs. However, the mix of alehouse and modern won't appeal to all. Also has a rear patio beer garden and a few small tables out on the side pavement. Master Brew, Whitstable Bay Pale, Spitfire Gold and a very fresh Late Red (£4.30) available from the four handpumps, and eight craft keg beers and ciders from the taps on the bar-back.

This is yet another Shepherd Neame pub in Faversham town centre, and fairly near to the train station. It had on Bishop's Finger, Whitstable Bay, Masterbrew and Hop Festival Ale - unfortunately no guest ale like the previous reviewer found when it was the Chimney Boy. As we were in there the evening before the start of the hop festival I went for latter brew, which of course I had never seen before. To be honest I didn't think it was terribly good, being somewhat wishy-washy. That's perhaps not how a beer somelier would describe it but that's how it seemed to me. As I was accompanied by Mrs R I also learnt that a Raspberry Mojito was £6 - cheap at the price I'm sure. I didn't see any sign of food on Friday evening, and for some of the time they were busy moving tables and chairs, presumably gearing up for the hop festival.

This is another rambling old pub, although the decor is now very much modern in tone. The bar counter is in the main bar area as you enter, which is dominated by a large brick built inglenook fireplace. Behind this room are more drinking areas, with some booths, with the garden right at the back.

This was a better pub than it looked from the outside, and thoroughly madeover, but certainly worth a look - as long as you're OK with Shepherd Neame ales.

A traditional town pub currently owned by Shepherd and Neame entered through a good sized bar at the front with an inglenook, carpeted floor and dartboard. There is a pool room behind but that can't be used at lunchtimes. There is a dining area at the rear with a small smoking area and car park behind that. There is also a walled garden. I found both staff and regulars to be very welcoming and friendly. It's a GBG pub and it's very much on the CAMRA circuit. There is a quaint collection of chamber pots adorning the windows. Freshly cooked food is available. Three ales on, 2 from Shepherd and Neame and a guest. I had the latter, Hook Norton's Lion, which was fresh and very pleasant. It's close enough to the station to break a journey for, and I would definitely include on a town crawl.
