The Four Candles, Broadstairs

4.7
#5 of 9 in Breweries & Distilleries in Kent
An experimental real ale brewery crammed into a cellar little more than 3m x 3m - and the results sold in the drinking area above.

No regular beers, no big-brewery products and at least one guest ale on offer. Biddenden ciders, wines and fruit juices, Canterbury cheeses, local pork pies. Pork scratchings sold by the half-pint.

No lagers, no spirits, no piped music, no Sky TV, no wi-fi and we boast terrible mobile phone reception. So customers have to make their own entertainment. Be prepared to talk to the regulars because they will probably talk to you. (This is not a place for a romantic tete-a-tete).

Small drinking area but somehow we always manage to pack one more in. Perhaps, next time, that one might be you.
