Alexandra Hotel has 4 hand pumps
Sitting on the main route between Chatham and Maidstone, a stone's throw from the A2 (which traces the Roman road between Dover and London) and next to Chatham rail station you can't really miss the Alexandra. There's been a pub here for 200 years but has recently suffered mixed fortunes.
On the plus side it's a Shepherd Neame pub and has never attracted the local "wildlife" and, as a parent, this is the only pub in the area that I call family friendly but with only four pumps, three dedicated to Master Brew and Spitfire, you'll only have the one choice for a seasonal beer - though bottled offerings are available.
There are very few decent pubs in Chatham, with less every year. If you're passing, pop in, have a pint and enjoy the quiet atmosphere in the middle of a roundabout.
