Yes, I’m in Kent aka Microland for a weekend, hoping the GBG entries will honour their Facebook opening times but knowing (spoiler) that they won’t.
I always enjoy the Medway towns, the land of Dickens and the lesser known Digger, 2 of the greatest Britons.
Sadly Dickens World was rubbish and was closed with a few years, but Diggerland thrives.
Rochester, with its castle and chi-chi dining (not the Spoons) has thrived, too, but my new micropub on the eastern edge of town is a bit quiet on Sunday afternoon, which I assumed was peak micro.
I love a good entrance.
12 Degrees, or RAMS Micropub as it’s marked on the map is silent bar my polite exchange with a guvnor who has named the dumper after Spurs.
Oh, it’s a Gooner.
What Pub says “quirky” so you know what you’re getting.
It’s actually a very decent little drinking space; proper seating and a local beer wiped from my notes that touched 3.5, but without the buzz of conversation to sustain it I didn’t linger.
When ARE micros busy, given they hardly ever open in the first place ?
I looked through the window of the whitewashed Nags Head at the London Pride pump, jealously, and moved on.
