Members of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale attending the Dartford Working Men’s Club (DWMC) will be spoilt for choice with the selection of real ales available at this week’s Revitalisation Meeting on Wednesday, 18 May, at 7.30 to 9.30pm.
The club always has a selection of 15 hand pumps where it aims to offer a range of styles and flavours.
Some of those available before and after the meeting will be Plateau (3.5 per cent ABV) from Burning Sky, Melba (5.2 per cent) and Otters Tears (6 per cent) from Thornbridge; Oscar Wilde (3.7 per cent), Mighty Oak; Odyssey (6.7 per cent), Kooky Munster; East Street Cream (5 per cent), RCH; Racquel (3.7 per cent) Roosters; and Bohemian Dark (5.9 per cent), Leatherbritches.
The club has won numerous awards over the years including CAMRA National Pub of the Year in 2003, Club of the Year three years later and Kent Pub and Club of the Year several times. Frequently it has been named the Gravesend and Darent Valley branch Pub of the Year. It also hosts an award-winning Folk Club on Tuesday evenings with many star performers.
National League Dartford Football Club was founded in 1888 by members of DWMC.
To reach the pub by rail it is only ten minutes walk from Dartford station while by road directions are a little awkward and these can be found on the DWMC’s website.
This is the first Revitalisation meeting in Kent and is the 13th to be staged throughout the UK over the course of the next few months. So far, each meeting has raised different issues and fascinating debate - and we’re sure this one will be no different.
