The Black Horse, Monks Horton

An excellent pub that serves the best real ale for miles. For those who care, the barrels are kept in a cold room behind the bar and the beer served straight from the barrels (gravity) rather than through the more usual, none to clean, pipe system. The landlord is working to provide excellent food. It may be slightly uneven in quality but more hit than miss. Prices are not unusually high or low. With 20% vat and just about everything weighted against the landlord making a profit, I think the food is very reasonably priced. The sunset over the downs, watched from the terrace with a perfectly cool pint of Harveys or Incubus, is one of the finest views in Kent. This pub needs to be supported and the locals need to get off their collective behinds and go there. The landlord is, contrary to one of the posts above, charming. Just for the record, i am not connected with this business in any way, but I speak as I find.

The Yew Tree Inn, Barfrestone

A quick scan of Honeydog's reviews of pubs reveals a very negative and slightly miserable attitude in my view. If the Fitzwalter Arms in Goodnestone had stayed as it was, it would now be closed. The new landlord has put the place on the map and the external investment is keeping the pub alive for the village to enjoy. A glance online at The Yew Tree's "cheffy menu" shows snacks starting at 3 and lunch 9.95 for two courses. This is hardly pricy. Both The Fitz and The Yew Tree use local ingredients, support local suppliers and local breweries, selling real ale at a fair 2.60 per pint. Local pubs need support or they will dissappear.

The Yew Tree Inn, Barfrestone

Hi, the Yew Tree reopened a month ago and our opening hours are 12pm to 11pm every day. Food is served seven days a week, the kitchen closes on Sunday evenings only. We will continue to serve excellent Real Ales with the emphasis being on local producers, i.e. Gadd's and Hopdaemon. We are having a beer festival 2-5th May 2008 with live jazz on the sunday from 4pm.
