Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Fishermans Arms

Fairly basic, edge-of-town-centre Shepherd Neame boozer Fisherman's Arms, albeit now completely free-of-tie (retaining the company's exterior signage but none of its draught beers). Otherwise seems little changed since my previous visit some five years ago, with a dark rectangular bar at the front (with traditional decor) and a smaller and lighter rear seating area with more modern furniture. Home of the Gemstone Brewery, with Sapphire (£3.00) being one of two beers on handpump, the other being Nelson Trafalgar as a guest. Keg offerings include two more Nelson beers: Powder Monkey and Dogwatch Stout. Not great, but still a welcome change from the noisy, overpriced bars in the middle of Maidstone.

The Fisherman's Arms is a long and thin pub that was populated by three learned locals and a barmaid during my recent midweek early evening visit. Master Brew and Spitfire were available from the two hand pumps and the usual Shepherd Neame draught was also available.
there was some low background music playing and the plasma screen was off, although I did spot a Sky Sports advertisement in the window. At the rear of the pub is a dartboard.

The service was friendly, but there are more comfortable pubs in the immediate area so I'll not be rushing back.

Small Narrow Shepherd Neames pub which, it seems, is due for a re-furb soon. Hope they re-furb the beer as well as it was not in very good condition.
