Firstly I should make it clear that this review and rating is as a pub as we only went in for a couple of drinks, so I cannot comment on the food or restaurant aspect.
This pub is set by the creek, just is a few minutes’ walk from the town centre at the end of the impressive and picturesque Abbey Street (said to be one of the best and longest medieval streets in the country). It is an old pub (some 300-years I believe) of character with wooden flooring, beams etc., yet unpretentious and without the ‘tweeness’ of many similarly historical pubs.
It appears to have a well-established local clientele in the public bar area, and has a good pub atmosphere to go with the range of Shepherd Neame Ales. It does provide food, although we didn’t eat there so cannot comment, but if you are looking for a pub with a down-to-earth old fashioned pub ambience, then you will like this one.
Parking is available on the quayside just down from the pub.
