A popular Shepherd Neame pub has been given a new lease of life thanks to a £25,000 refurbishment.

The makeover has transformed the Royal Mail at Lydd, which licensee Sue Kent, who runs the pub with partner Andy Cox, has described as the “best pub I’ve ever been in – and I work here!”

The pub has been redecorated throughout, with new carpeting and a freshly painted exterior. Its four letting rooms have also been refurbished.

Sue said: “We have created a cosy atmosphere, whether it is in the lounge bar where I have put two sofas, or in the games room. People love
everything about it – as well as the beer.”

Along with food, accommodation, fine ales and a host of games such as pool and darts, the Royal Mail hosts curry nights on Thursdays and Fish and Chips suppers on Fridays.

The refurbishment has seen the pub return to the heart of the community in Lydd.
Sue said: “It is friendly and homely and children are welcome.”
