Final stop in beautiful Whistable was a pub named after my canine brethren, The Black Dog. This micropub has five rotating real ales from local breweries as well as a huge selection of regional ciders and perries. The beer is great but it's the quirky, narrow dimly lit interior that makes this place one to visit. With high tables and benches running along the sides, a crazy red chandelier hanging from the ceiling plus loads of curios littering the walls and bar, I could've spent hours at the Dog sampling beers and admiring the weird and wonderful ornaments. Unfortunately it was time to head back to London. As I sipped my pint of @burningskybeer Plateu I sat back and barked a cheers to Whistable, you've been grand!

Here we are at the @thetwelvetaps which unsurprisingly has twelve taps! What is surprising is that, in a quaint little seaside town like Whistable, the beer menu would rival most specialty London Beer joints! With the likes of @magicrockbrewing, @thekernelbrewery, @buxtonbrewery, @brewbynumbers it's almost worth the trip to Whistable just for the beer! The bar itself has a long, narrow interior stretching all the way back to a small patio garden. The interior feels as warm and comforting as the friendly staff and chilled, relaxed locals. If it wasn't for the fact that there' were oysters to consume I could hung here all day! Time to get shucked!!

Chilllin with my homies!!

Great day by the seaside drinking @harveysbrewery Best at the Old Neptune Whistable. This cozy, seaside boozer is located directly on the beach which is a perfect place to plant my fluffy tush and get my tan on! The inside is bright and busy with tourists but its the wooden exterior, with it's storm battered boarding, that gives the pub it's true character. More pictures to come of our adventures in this cute little town. Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.....

Charging the batteries for more Tails!! Where's my beer garçon?

They say a black cat crossing your path is a bad omen. However...what happens if you walk right into one and order a pint?! It may not look like much from the outside but when it comes to the @blacklionkilburn I'm willing to flip the old dog bowl and tempt fate! Who can blame me when the interior of the Lion is this beautiful. From the elegant gold and burgundy decorations on the ceiling to the original wooden counter, island bar and brass reliefs the Lion is over the top and opulent. It makes makes me ponder who were the original punters this was designed for? It's even been listed by CAMRA as having an historic pub interior of national importance. Combine these incredible original features with some comfortable worn leather armchairs and couches, friendly staff and a very decent booze/food menu and it's hard to believe you’re only feet away from grubby Kilburn high road. As I leave the Lion I feel great, perhaps it's silly to believe in old superstitions. Then I notice a black house cat sipping a pint in the beer garden and I'm suddenly left with a conundrum! 'Do two black cats cancel each other out?'

Just sampling this incredibly refreshing @buxtonbrewery Sonrisa Clementine & Lemon Pale Ale at @thestaghampstead. Perfect knock off beer after a day of snoozing!!!!
