Miners Arms22 London Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Originally built for Irish navvies working on the nearby railway, the Miners is now a local village family-friendly pub with a strong sense of community. During recent refurbishment work the landlord uncovered and restored the 100 year old front signage of the now defunct brewery Kidd and Son of Dartford and this provides an attractive feature on entering the pub. Three rotating, mainly local cask ales are to be found on the bar along with a real cider from Westons Rosie's Pig together with an extensive gin selection. A log fire just around from the bar area warms customers in the colder months while two log burners do likewise on the covered rear terrace. The terrace leads into a surprisingly spacious garden incorporating substantial communal huts complete with luxurious seating, and a children's play area at the rear. Supervised children are welcome until 8pm. Traditional pub food is offered Friday to Sunday, noon until around 8pm. A Happy Hour scheme operates 12-3pm Monday to Thursday and live music is performed regularly on Friday or Saturday nights. Loyalty card - buy 10 pints get next pint free.
