We are interested in bringing you the best of a great selection of products and produce as well as working with local suppliers too. If you are interested in working with us and supplying the pub to increase the range we can offer please talk to Fran or Richard about this.
On the bar you will be sure to find a pint of Larkins, our local brewery; the closest to us at just two miles from our pump! Their beer is made only from their own hops grown on their farm, right beside us. Larkins Traditional is their best bitter, a true Kentish real ale at 3.4%
We are always rotating on our pumps and trying a selection of great beers from the likes of Larkins, Brumaison, Canterbury Ales, Tonbridge Brewery, The Oxted Brewery, The Greyhound Brewery, Cellar Head, The Old Dairy, Kent Brewery, Whitstable Brewery, and Dorking Brewery to name but a few over the coming months so hope you will enjoy checking these out.
On the lager pumps we are giving the retro but totally revamped Hofmeister a go from the off! In their own words: Yup, you read it right: Hofmeister is back. And it’s bigger, better, Bavarian-er than ever before. Slow-brewed in Germany and crafted according to the 1516 Reinheitsgebot Beer Purity Law, we think our genuine Bavarian Helles is the best lager you can get your paws on. For Great Helles Lager, Follow The Bear.
Come and try it here, we don’t think you will be disappointed!
We also serve Guinness, Aspalls Premium Cyder and Whitstable Kentish Lager too along with a lovely selection of Rochester Premium Presse soft drinks, Franklins fruity soft drinks, Coca Cola, Diet Coke, Folkingtons Juices and many more interesting fresh and tasty drinks on offer here.
