Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Real Ale Way

This micropub is just opposite Hayes station. Although trains here take quite a while from central London and it can be easier to take a fast train to Bromley South instead.

The owner was a little late arriving for opening yesterday. But we were soon inside and abiding by the new Covid regulations.

All ales and ciders were from Kent. The 4 ales on were Tonbridge Traditional & Copperknob, Larkin's Pale & Wantsum Dynamo. Ciders were Biddenden Dry, Medium, Bushells & Monk's Delight, Dudda's Tun Bone Dry & Pear o' Duddas & Kent Cider Company Elderflower Cider, Midsummer Berry, Waken, Strawberry Cider & Toffee Apple Cider.

CAMRA discounts are given on real ales only. Easily the best option for drinking in Hayes.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Real Ale Way

An excellent micro pub this one, which had a relaxed atmosphere, good beer and a friendly barman. The layout consisted of a good sized main room and bar, with the beer served from a cold room behind the bar. There was also a front seating area, which could be described as a front snug. The interior had white painted walls throughout, timber flooring and the bar area was finished with dark timber panelling. Eight mainly locales to choose from which were Larkins pale, Cellar Head Pole Dancer, Wantsum Imperium, Old Dairy Fuggle Bitter, Bexley Brewery Old Mill Autumn Ale, Tonbridge Kolsch Blonde, Tonbridge American Pale and Traditional Ale House Session bitter. There was also huge selection of local ciders and perries. The Train Station is only across the road and there is a bus stop at the door. We got the bus from South Bromley and the train back into London. We spent some time here as the beer and chat was good.
