Robin Hood and Little John

Robin Hood and Little John - Thursday 18th August 2016

78 Lion Rd, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 8PF

MB and I have not been out for a beer on our regular Thursday night jaunts for over a month, so we decided to get back into it in style. We made a visit to our favourite local pub for a few proper beers, which made a lovely change from the Guinness and lager I have been drinking recently.

This pub has always been top of our list if we fancy a good night's beer drinking they have an extensive menu that is more than enough for a night's drinking plus they always carry one or two guest ales. For the last few months, the menu has included...
  • Adnams Best
  • Doom Bar
  • Harveys Best
  • London Pride
  • B.O.B.
  • Broadside
The guest ale this week was Shepherd Neame's  Spitfire Gold.

On the whole we only ever visit here on our own, but when we occasionally go with others they too are generally ale drinkers. However, if one day we did turn up with someone who doesn't drink real beer, then there is an extensive list of quality non-ale pints on offer...

  • Stella Artois
  • Peroni
  • San Miguel
  • Kronenbourg
  • Fosters (well, maybe not such great quality here)
  • Carlsberg (or here)
Tonight the pub was not so busy but the patrons turned over in such a way that there was a buzz at all times. We managed to get a table, which was nice as we could see all that was going on as well as putting the world to rights with our inane chat.

Beers drunk on this visit :

1) Whitstable Bay (3.9%) - Faversham Steam Brewery, Faversham - a refreshing, subtably fruity and bitter pale ale
2) Spitfire Gold (4.1%) - Shepherd Neame, Faversham - a soft, malty taste with a slightly bitter after taste
3) B.O.B. (4.2%) - Bexley Brewery, Bexley, Kent - a smooth pale ale with a flowery aroma

Number of visits : Dozens
