I have only just started to research into this area of Kent and I am hoping to be able to update this page with further information later.

Butt of Sherry outside seating 2022

The outside seating area.

It comes as publicans across the county are struggling to survive in the wake of Covid and now the cost of living crisis.

Many have closed their doors in the last year, including the "Dancing Dog Saloon," near Sittingbourne and the "Red Lion," Stodmarsh, near Canterbury.

And while it was once the norm to visit your local for a pint after work on a Friday night, some landlords suggest this is becoming a thing of the past.

The owners of the Butt of Sherry were approached for a comment.
