Medway's first micro pub serves real ale, ciders and a range of wine's and soft drink's along with normal pub snacks. Friendly atmosphere no tv or loud music just good conversation and old fashion pub games.

A great little pub, friendly, mind blowing selection of ciders could have had more ales on. Best pub I've visited in Gillingham by far and will pop in whenever I'm about.

Great micropub that is an oasis in the centre of Gillingham. Great selection of ales and ciders and the list is always changing. Amazingly friendly atmosphere.

An awesome visit and only reason I didn't score 5 was I felt I wasn't really acknowledged very quickly. I love these quirky type of places and don't let the outside put you off. Plenty of choice to choose from whatever your tastes are and...More
