After a scenic drive through the woods, there's the Man of Kent. Situated alongside a little river, the location is nice & scenic especially during the warmer months when you can sit out in the garden area.

Enter the pub & it's, well, it's a pub. Low ceiling, dark, lots of bar towels, soccer memorabilia, etc. I was here around 11am on a monday so things were a bit quiet with retired four locals hanging out at the bar shooting the shit. Lunch was a notch above the standard pub fare and at reasonable prices.

On tap was good ole English ales including Charles Wells & Abbot, as well as more common Newcastle & Smithwicks. There appears to be a really diesel bottle selection of British beers as well, but did not get an oportunity (or was not provided) with a listing.

It doesn't appear that much has changed from the previous reviews. Lots of soccer and golf memorabilia on the wall and lots of English beers on tap mixed in with Smuttynose and Southern Tier. Decent selection of taps 10 in total I believe and a great bottle selection. The bottle selection runs from some great Belgium, Germany, English, and domestic craft beers at least 100 bottles to choose from.
The service was great as soon as I sat down at the bar the bartender said I have a great English Ale as he poured me a sample before I could say anything. I decided on a Young's Double Chocolate Stout which was good.
The food menu was great I went with Ahi tuna with sesame seeds and a szechuan sauce. Ahi tuna and chocolate stout might not go well together but I was done with the beer when the food arrived. The place was packed for lunch on a Wednesday so they must be doing something right.
If you happen to be traveling on RT. 7 going to Vermont from Troy NY it's definitely worth a stop great food great beer selection in a friendly English style pub.

Spent a Saturday afternoon here after a co-worker recommended the place. It was a nice fall day for a drive so I loaded the wife into our car and we headed up for some beer and perhaps some food if we drank enough.

Beer selection was great. I had 2 draft beers and a bottle. Wife had an Old Speckled Hen and 2 bottles. We had the wings and a dinner special.

Very reasonable price, incredibly friendly bartender (owner I think). He threw in two pint glasses for us on our way out. We will be back! Thanks again.

This is one of my favorite places to go. If considering how close it is to where I live, it is my favorite place. You will find this place to be very warm and friendly. The type of place you always leave feeling like you made a friend. It is located in the middle of nowhere. Many people probably drive by and never know what they are missing. The decor is influenced by the former owner who is from England. Hence a lot of futball(soccer) items. There beer selection is outstanding. They have many offerings from DFH, Stone, Sam Smiths, Troeggs( at one point they had nugget nectar on tap) and many many more. They have a whole shelf of Belgian beers. They even carry some of the BMC's to appeal to everyone. For the most part there taps are British but they will sprinkle in some other things here and there. The menu has really improved with the new owners. If they are serving the wild wings when you visit I would suggest getting them. All and all you won't be disappointed with your visit.

I go to Mahar's fairly often and they have a Man of Kent sign in their bar. Had to finally stop by on the way to Vermont. It is in the middle of nowhere as previous people have stated. One thing of note when we went is they are now open 7 days a week. The bar itself is fairly nice. Tons of windows looking out over the river. Reminded me of a home bar in quite a few ways. Tons of crap on the walls focusing on Soccer. The taps were all British ales with one Clipper City beer offered. The gentleman tending bar the day we went was the former owner. I walked over and was looking at the handles. He recommended something to me and asked me if I was into beer. I told him I live next to Mahar's and that I was told to come here. Nice people over there was his reply and said he didnt think I needed help. Ordered a Fullers ESB and got it served right in an Imperial Pint. The food was standard pub fare with very reasonable prices. I would like to come by early on a weekend and check this place out again.

This place is great. I usually pass by in the wee hours of the morning and had for years. Finally, last fall, I had a chance to go by when they were actually open. I stopped in, unfortunately had already had lunch. After seeing the burger on a guys plate next to me.. well, I was bummed that I'd already eaten. I had 2 1/2 pints of great English beers that were on tap. Sorry, I don't recall what they were, other than they were good. This past Thursday, a friend and I stopped in and were treated like royalty by John, who is the bartender and former owner. I finally got to try one of those burgers.. holy cow! What a great burger! I had a pint of Wells Bombardier English Premium. Great beer, properly served. After that, I had an Abbot Ale which was nitrogen dispensed. Not my favorite, but it was good (not real fond of nitro beers). All in all, John, Mike, burger and beer.. don't get much better. Kinda glad it's a 4 1/2 hour drive away.. good stuff..
