“that little pub by the canal”
Bring the whole family…including the dog.

We set out to buck the trend of fancy, over the top country pubs, in favor of a stripped back, let’s make it about the beer approach.
We are nestled in the heart of Kent, on the banks of the Military Canal, West Hythe – we have great access via the towpath (about a 25 min walk) to Hythe town and ample room to park or lean your bike…or horse.

THE HATCH IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

as local as beer gets.

As the official ‘tap’ of the Hop Fuzz Brewery, we will always endeavor to have a selection of freshly tapped ales ready to go. Served straight from the barrel, a literal stone’s throw from where they were made – just as the brewer intended.

Don’t worry though, it’s not only beers – we have a great selection of lagers, Kent Ciders, spirits wines and soft drinks – along with hot drinks and free squash for the kids.

See below for this week’s cask ales:
