Nestled under the Strood railroad bridge is the picturesque 10:50 from Victoria micropub. With a beautiful garden and plenty of character, this is an ideal spot in the warmer months, with a wide range of home-brewed ales and ciders. This micropub gives a brilliant communal vibe and is often bustling with people during the summer.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, so it is perfect for novices to connoisseurs of these homebrews. Stop by this hidden gem and enjoy the atmosphere while trying one of their many drink choices.
Everybody has been to a traditional pub, be it to socialise, have a pint, or spend a Sunday afternoon. But, not many can say they have been to a micropub. Well it turns out that Medway has quite a few of these hidden gems and these are just a few that you can check out.
The Wolfe and Castle micropub is situated in one of Rochester's most iconic buildings, notably from it leaning to one side rather like the tower in Pisa, or after one too many drinks. This little treasure sells some of the most unique and tasty ales from across the globe, from Britain to Germany and even the United States.
The owner and staff are passionate about their ales and IPA’s and it definitely shows. The interior is warm and quirky and its a must-see stop for all those who love micropubs.
On the other side of Rochester high street is the Three Sheets to the Wind micropub. Its aesthetic is full of Austrian charm with drinks being served in seidels (a glass similar to a stein) and the low roof ceilings adding to the intimate nature of the pub.
There is even a secret garden where you can kick back and enjoy an Austrian or German beer in this tranquil setting.
While not a micropub technically, the Dead Pigeon has a bountiful variety of ales which offers a choice for everyone. Located between Rochester and Chatham you can stop by and learn more about local varieties as well as try out the delicious food they have on offer here.
Its a great spot to meet with friends to kick back and enjoy yourself.
