Situated in a former Hair and Beauty shop, this micro pub opened in 2018.


From the By Lauren MacDougall, 21 December 2019.

The 33 pubs in Kent you have to drink at in 2020 according to CAMRA.

In total Kent has heaps of pubs listed in the guide and, while 33 of these are new entries, others have appeared in previous editions of the guide.

A total of 33 pubs from around Kent make up the new entries that feature in the 2020 edition of the Good Beer Guide.

The guide is produced annually by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), the independent guide to the best boozers in the UK that is researched by unpaid and independent volunteers nationwide.

Tom Stainer, CAMRA’s chief executive, said: “For nearly five decades, the Good Beer Guide has been a comprehensive guide to the UK’s breweries, their ales, and the best outlets to find them in across the country.

“What makes the Guide unique is that all the entries are compiled and vetted by a huge volunteer team, based around the country. We work hard to ensure that all areas of the country are covered and, unlike with some competitor titles, inclusion in this book is dependent only on merit, not on payment.

“The Good Beer Guide has always had an important role in acting as a barometer of the beer and pub industry. We believe information gleaned from the Guide is absolutely vital in the drive to save our pubs from closure and campaign for policies that better support pubs, local brewers and their customers.”

This pub is included in the 2020 list.

Flying Sheep Micropub, Sheerness.

What the guide says: "Micropub opened in 2018, with an aviation and local sheep theme reflecting Sheppey’s past involvement in aircraft manufacture and sheep farming.

"Seating is mainly high tables and high stools but there are several comfortable airline seats. The bar counter offers an interesting and changing range of beers from near and far, with ciders on gravity dispense."


Closed on 3 May 2023 and changed name to the "Pilots' Rest" re-opening again on the 10 August 2023.
