The Potting Shed is a no-nonsense, no-frills little boozer where drinking beer is clearly the main, if not the only task in hand.
You’ll find the Potting Shed on a quiet olde worlde street near the centre of Hythe on the South Kent coast.
Run by Peter, the Potting Shed has been open since September 2014.
When we arrived towards the end of a lunchtime session on a Sunday it was standing room only, not that there is a large amount of sitting room as this micropub is somewhat more micro than others. There was a choice of three ales, available from jacket –cooled casks behind the bar, and also a selection of ciders. There was also a hand-pump on the bar, but we were not sure whether or not it was in use.
We forgot to ask what the premises were used for before Pete took over, but from the looks of it, it might well have been a chippy or some other kind of takeaway as the high counter is still in place and now acts as the bar.
All in all a good, basic watering hole that proves you don’t need a theme or a gimmick to be popular.
