See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Superb, unspoilt, multi-room 16th century smugglers' pub which has been in the same family for over 100 years and a continuous GBG entry for over 40 years. The pub passed to the next generation in April 2016 but is still universally known as Doris's. Decorated with posters from the 1940s and the Women's Land Army, it has a nationally important historic pub interior. It is on the road which separates Walland Marsh from Romney Marsh between Brenzett and Appledore. Although ancient hand pumps adorn the marble topped bar counter, these are not in use and all ales and cider are served on direct gravity dispense from casks behind the bar. Food is limited to basic bar snacks. A beer festival is held in June over the nearest weekend to the Summer Solstice with a mini festival in October around Halloween. Cash and card payment accepted here.
