Pub-loving Kentish Towners get all smug about the Pineapple. While so many other pubs go gastro, this remains an old-fashioned place where locals of all ages and credit ratings gather to booze and schmooze. The crowded front and side rooms are where the social action is, the big conservatory in back is where you can stretch your legs, and the garden is the place for good weather. Come and share the smug love.
