user reviews of the Locomotive Inn, Ashford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Some things never change, and the Locomotive is one of them. A "locals" pub, but everyone is welcomed. And a decent serlection of bottled ales too.

A strange pub – whilst my son plays for their pool team, I felt far too old to be there. I got definite vibes of “local pub for local people”, but I live fifty yards away from the place, and have no idea who the “locals” were. In twenty years of living locally, I’d never seen any of them.
Also, being a free house in Kent, why choose a Shepherd Neame ale as your guest beer

As I had the arduous task of finding a venue where a group of railway commuters from various parts of Kent could meet up for a pint and a natter, Ashford seemed pretty central. The pub had to be within 10 minutes walk of the station, and serve ale.

How apt that the first pub on my list was The Locomotive, a sturdy looking building with a longish L-shaped bar. Said bar sported a couple of "jewish candleabra" dispensing various sorts of chemical liquids. However, there are two hand pumps.

The first was Shepherd Neame's Master Brew ( 3.7% ) at £2.20 per pint.

The other was one from a sizeable range of Archer's "Locomotive Series" ales that have been served here over the last few months. Tuesday evening's offering was a delicious "Great Bear" ( 5.0% ) at a bargain £1.80 per pint.

Bumped into a colleague a little later in "Spoons", mentioned this to him and he returned here later on in the evening.

I cannot comment about the food as I was on a mission, and time was of the essence.

I could spend happily spend an evening getting quietly legless on the extensive range of malt whiskies.

I like this pub. I like Archers ales. 7/10

Clive the landlord runs a good wholesome pub that's welcoming and serves massive portions of food! One pool table and a dart board, also has traditonal pub games such as crib and chess behind the bar.
