See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Previously the Crown, this venue re-opened in April 2018 after a significant re-development of the site but pleasantly retaining the pub's original ground floor frontage. Run by a couple of friends who are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all beers. It sells a selection of up to 3 cask ales from a small number of local Kent and London breweries plus some guests from further afield. Real ciders and perries, keg beer, bottles, cans, wines and spirits are also available. The pub is smaller than in its previous incarnation, although does not strictly follow the 'micropub' rules as it plays recorded music. Walls are half-panelled and brightly painted. Cask ales and ciders / perries are served by gravity dispense from a small walk-in chilled room behind the bar counter, from a three tier nine cask stillage. There were initially 11 keg beer taps on the back wall but in late November 2018 this was increased to 18. Seating is at trestle style tables with low chairs. Basic snacks are displayed in jars on the bar counter and may include, variously, pork pies, scotch eggs or samosas. Spotlessly kept toilets. Card payments accepted.
