Quite simply, the pub as we knew it is disappearing faster than my kids do when there's washing up to be done.

This blog is just a place to record pubs that are going or gone and an anecdote or two. The first eight are all within three miles of my home. If you have any you want to add, just send me a photo and a few sentences and I'll add them when I get a moment.

The Pottery Arms, Forstal Rd, Aylesford, Kent

Now converted to a B&B after a short spell as a rather bizarre Gothic destination when it was named the Grim Reaper. The Pottery Arms is near the river Medway and in front of an industrial site with several clay holes and used to have a pottery behind it. Not that they're connected, but there is still a pottery nearby at Aylesford Priory, which is worth a visit if you are nearby...and if you like pottery...or priories...or ducks (it has a duck pond).

  1. Live bands and trays of excellent roast tatties every Sunday lunchtime. The landlord moved to the Lower Bell, and the Pottery (like so many others) took a nose dive when it was painted matt black and became the 'Grim Reaper'. It's days were numbered.
