    Default North Kent

    A pal is going to be staying in Whitstable for a few days and was asking if I knew of any must-visit pubs within, say, a 10-mile radius. I think I have the low-down on Whitstable itself, but do any of you Men of Kent or Kentish Men know of any hidden rural gems? He & the missus will have transport, so that wouldn't be a factor. Thanks.

    Off the top of my head, the Butchers arms at Herne-I haven't been there, but want to. It has odd opening hours to my knowledge, but keeps a mean pint of Hophead.The Three Horseshooes at Hernehill is a proper local, and knows how to serve Sheps (gravity dispense) Over at Oare near Faversham the Shipwrights Arms is (or was) excellent,specialising in mostly Kent micros. Probably a bit far out for you is the Black Lion at Lynsted , a shrine to Goachers. Incidentally, Goachers Fine Light Ale is still my beer of the year,a position it has graced since New Years day. Good luck!
