    That's great news - I love the Hope (I'll be heading down there next week to their 'Extreme Beers' Festival), so it sounds like they've got the right sort of person in to carry on the good work at the Bull. I'll add it back on my 'to do' list!

    I would really appreciate anyone writing here if they know of pubs that have had to shut down. If you know of the date they shut and their address that would be great as well.

    Look forward to hearing from you all.
    We had to close for a few weeks following repossession and a court case against previous tenant, but now the original owner (owner at time of CAMRA award in 2003) is back in charge. We are offering a wide range of real ales and ciders, as well as excellent wines. You can order a Chinese or Indian takeaway to eat in at no surcharge. Come and enjoy a traditional Kentish pub, in existence as a pub since 1845!

    That's good news - Look forward to popping back in! There's now a few decent pubs to be found in Gravesend and it's good to see the C&T back in the thick of it.
