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

Kipps' Alehouse follows the general principle of a micro-pub, serving real ale directly from the cask. In this case from a glass enclosed and cooled steel stillage. Generally, the Alehouse has a local Kentish ale, a guest ale being an award winner and then another unusual beer from around the country, when practical a fourth beer will be tapped to add additional variety. All ales are sourced from small independent micro-breweries and served in third pint glasses for tasting. Several ciders are on sale from boxes on the bar counter. This "micro-pub" is unusual in that is serves a variety of bottled craft beers and draught international lagers. Generally, the Alehouse also has upward of 10 international wines, a selection of gins and in addition to Prosecco, Port and Sherry.
