Subject: The Crown, Otford - Beer & Folk weekend
From: Kev The Clogs
Date: 19 Aug 08 - 08:46 AM

The Crown Pub in Otford (near Sevenoaks, Kent) is holding a Beer/Folk weekend on Friday 10th October, Saturday 11th October and Sunday 12th October. (The weekend after Tenterden)

Norcsalordie, a superb duo, will be performing on the Saturday night inside the pub. There will be a Selection of twelve beers (and there are some crackers!!!) in the smokers' lean to, outside in the garden. Mark, the Landlord, would like as many Folkies to attend as possible - we can sit in the garden area and sing and play (if it looks like bad weather, I think he might put up a marquee).

Turn up when you can. The main Folk slant is on the Saturday, but if you are there on the Friday or Sunday, then I'm sure that you will be welcome to sing and play inside as well.

This is his first attemp at this, so wish him luck.

If it is a success, then he says that he will try and organise the farmer's field behind the pub for next year!!

Hope you can make some/all of it.

Regards

Kev

Not sure that the ducks had a say in it. They had a very pleasant detached chalet which has disappeared and been replaced with rubble and plastic fencing. The work started in a rush but over the last couple of weeks seems to have ground to a halt

Last year there was a duck and a drake and half a dozen little ones who all grew up on the pond as one happy family

This year there were three ducklings but early in the season the parents went missing leaving the youngsters to fend for themselves. Without parental guidance you might have thought there would be an outbreak of vandalism, graffiti and increased duck knife crime but surprisingly they seemed to grow up quite well adjusted

with the chalet going missing, the parents disappearing and the workmen who haven't been seen for weeks I strongly suspect there is a black hole or something centred near here. It's not certain but if you are attending the beer festival watch your pint closely in case it disappears down the black hole !

Good luck to young Ben!!!

I have been keeping Mark, the Landlord of The Crown, fully briefed as to the response on this thread - he is very pleased with your comments and your pledges of support.

I should be able to list the beers that will be there in the the next couple of days.

Mark will be putting the beers in the "Smokers' Shack" (Smokers will have to smoke out in the open that weekend), Folkies in the Garden area (with the beers!!) and possibly a fire (It is a "solid" garden, pot plants and flower beds, but no grassed area, so I don't know how he is going to do the fire). Norcsalordie will be in the Restaurant Area. Hartley Morris will be dancing wherever there is space and I guess singing either outside or in the bar before the Norcs are on. My mate Rob, will be fire juggling from dusk onwards.

Still no official camping. If there is a big enough turn out, Mark will sort this out for next year. There are a limited number of B&Bs in the area, along with the Doddinington Manor Hotel. The nearest accommodation after that would be at Brands Hatch I guess or at the Clacket Lane service area on the M25 - SO, I suggest you plan where you are going to drop and how you are getting home in advance People!!!!

The new edition of The Good Beer Guide has just been published, and I am delighted to say that The Crown is in it after a gap of at least 10 years!!!!

I do think that it should be a good day/weekend!! Let's keep the support for Mark going.

Thanks Folks

Kev

As promised, a list of the beers that will be available over the weekend along with the tasting notes!!!!

TASTING NOTES FOR THE CROWN INN.

BRANSCOMBE – Branoc (3.8%)
A crisp amber bitter with a thin, but lasting white head. Dry malts and a dash of hops in this low abv session bitter; give it a clean and fresh taste.

BRECONSHIRE – Ramblers Ruin (5.0%)
A traditional old ale, dark amber, malty and well hopped, which provides malt/biscuit undertones; with a slight bitterness which comes from the hops, all of these ingredients give this beer an exceptional aftertaste.

DARK STAR – Hop Head (3.8%)
An extremely clean-drinking pale gold-coloured ale with a strong floral aroma and elderflower notes. This beer is full-bodied despite its very quaffable strength and dryness.

GRINDLETONS – Old Fecker (4.0%)
Chestnut in colour, with a hint of ruby and a strong malty aroma.

GOACHERS – Gold Star (5.0%)
An excellent fruit and hop mix in this golden ale. Peach/Apricot fruit in the mouth and then great hop taste at the end. Balanced and a great golden beer.

HESKET NEWMARKET – Doris's 90th Birthday (4.3%)
A full flavoured, fruity premium beer with hints of butterscotch, carefully balanced with bitterness from Fuggles, First Gold and Herzbrucker Haler hops.

MOLES – Rucking Mole (4.5%)
A chestnut coloured premium ale, with a malty, fruity palate and aroma and a smooth bitter finish.

POTTON – Village Bike (4.3%)
A complex beer, with hops blended from four different varieties, which provides this beer with an exceptional character.

ROBINSONS – Old Tom (8.5%)
A strong dark ale, dark chocolate in colour, with a slight hint of molasses and fruit on the nose, with a rich, warming peppery taste.

SPRINGHEAD – Goodrich Castle (4.4%)
Brewed following a 13th century recipe using Rosemary. A Pale ale, light on the palate with a bitter finish and delicate flavour.

YORK – Centurions Ghost (5.4%)
A warming, dark bitter ale, with a roasted malt taste. Very easy to drink for its strength.

BIDDENDEN – Bushels (6%)
A pale strong cider, made from culinary and dessert apples, which give this cider a sweetness, which isn't to over powering, with slight hints of lemon running through until the aftertaste.

How good is that then!!!!!

Kev

Thanks for the info Mark

Can't say I'm surprised that English Heritage want a closer look at it. To a passer-by it looks like someone is building an ornamental pond using breeze blocks and lumps of rock - shame they got so far

by the way Mark - good luck with the new rockery ! :-)

The idea is that they took out all of the existing rocks (the ones that are piled nicely - but disappearing rapidly!), and then "seeled" the walls of the pond with the breeze blocks. THEN they were going to put the rocks back, so that you didn't see the breeze blocks, and the rocks would also be pointed so that they looked natural. All of this was going to be done to ensure that the pond didn't leak, which it has done for years.

You must remember though, that this is Sevenoaks Council, and they gave the go ahead for the pond to be renovated in this manner. You would assume that they would have been in discussions with English Heritage as well. When all of the shouting has been done, the pond will continue being renovated in the same, originally planned way - you mark my words!!! I have been talking to one of the contractors who was working on it.

Meanwhile, the Ducks are being looked after very well just up the road; the duck house has been cleaned and dried and wrapped up and stored ready for putting back as soon as possible AND the council have requested that there be no illegal fish dumping in the pond as they have to be THE RIGHT FISH that live in it!!!

Never fear, the Otford Mafia will be on the case very soon, if not already, and will be giving the council grief.

Such a sleepy little village too :-)

Do you know exactly what is listed then Kev - is it just the concept of a duckpond there ?

the new construction seems to involve a polythene liner along with the breeze blocks - I would imagine there are more traditional duckponds around the country

As far as I know, it's the pond itself - however,as I said before, it has leaked for years and past attempts to stem the flow have been fruitless. They worked on it about a year or two ago, when they completely relined it with a new covering of clay (which also gave it a very sureal green tint!!).

All seemed to be well for a while, the Duck House and the Ducks returned, and all appeared hunky-dorey. Unbeknown to us, was the fact that it was still leaking and was running the risk of contaminating surrounding areas, including the natural spring that is there.

So as far as I can gather the "listed" pond, the facia, was to be removed, the edge was to be breeze blocked and polythened, the original rocks replaced "as was", remortared, and the base re-clayed. Thus producing a "listed", original and natural looking feature that has been there for years (just with some modern techniques employed underneath and unseen, to help it cope with the demands of 21st century!!).

So really, in that respect, it's the concept that is "listed". I guess that English Heritage need to be reassured that regardless of how it has been repaired, the "Outside look and feel" will be as they were before they started the work.

I'll have a chat with one of the blokes who has been working on it next week hopefully.

Guilty as charged Melodeonboy - I'm responsible and the thread has drifted about twenty yards max

last year's family of ducks was absolutely charming - easily seen from the saloon of The Crown public house in Otford Kent where the beer and folk festival is being held on the weekend of 10-12 October (back on thread)

it was a duck and drake and six little ones all of whom grew to adulthood in the pond while dodging the occasional Audi 800 going for a swim. My fondest memory is of the duck and drake standing side by side on the bank overlooking the pond and the six tiny little ducklings all swimming round in a group in the water just beneath them - aaahhhhhhhh ! - come on, you can do better than that - AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !

Anyway I think I'll go for the Grindletons and as my mum's name was Doris I shall drink to her memory with the Hesket Newmarket Doris's 90th birthday
