I thought the bar area was quite large in this micro, which made navigating your way past customers at the bar with your beer to hand quite difficult, especially when the pub was busy on our Saturday afternoon visit.
Six ales on handpump, so we went for the Gadds No.7 and G2 Brewery Plough IPA, from Ashford.

In most respects, a typical micro-pub although there is enough room for a counter and the furniture is more modern than most. No decor to speak of, with bare-brick walls, but the full-height window at the front helps. Six real ales (mostly reasonably local) in a variety of styles, from which selection I went for the Mad Cat Jet Black Stout.

A new micro in Sittingbourne's busiest nightlife area, forming a triangle with the JDW and the Ypres Tavern. The premises was previously a vaping business and has been a shop for many years. The eponymous Donna, who has previously managed pubs for Wetherspoons and Marstons, is friendly, energetic and knowledgeable. The bar is a single room with basic decor - a mix of plain plaster and exposed brickwork. The counter is a modern slate design with a wooden top holding pumps dispensing Genesis, Rockin Robin, Wantsum Fortitude, Mad Cat's Jet Black Stout, Dartford Golden Wobbler and Molly Pig cider. There was also a boxed cider on the bar. Bottled beers were also on offer including Hobgoblin, Goose Honkers and Whitstable Bay. There was a selection of gins and a token wine list. Most of the clientele were CAMRA types, and there was one idiot who came in looking for a kebab. An excellent venture, well worth visiting for its top quality ale.
