  • Probably the fastest pint in the city. Highly recommend if you want to have a pint after work and you don't want to wait ages while waiting to be served. Never any queues at the bar and the staff know what they are doing.
  • Nice reasonably priced city pub. Worth a visit if in the area. Extremely good staff (probably the best I have encountered at a Shepherd Neame establishment).
