nice?
I notice no one has filled this in for almost a year and i think i know why. Bein new to this town i started drinkin in there but soon realised my mistake. the place was dirty, beer was crap, staff all on charlie, full of pikeys and the atmosphere was as exciting as a wet weekend in wales. queing? never seena queue here and doubt i will for a long time. has this place had new management recently?

reputation
The place is tight-knit with the same faces every weekend- pikeys. The pub itself is excellent; clean, friendly service and always something going on. Yet its locality to the town centre means that you often bump into the ugly sory-and end up paying for it!

It's alright
Reading this lot you would think it was the bees knees. I think it's just an GOOD average pub. I will agree the staff are friendly and the place is homely(ish) but other than that it's nothing super. I haven't gone at the weekend though. Apparantly it's a bit of a pick up joint on the weekends. I did enjoy the pool and ale though.

Very good!
The accommodation is very good. It's like renting a bed-sit. The Drink and atmosphere is excellent too - especially on Friday's and Saturdays. The owner, Alex Poole, is an honest decent sort. I over paid him at the bar only to find the extra money in an envelop sitting for me when I got back from work the next day. Staff are great for banter. All in all I really recommend it.

Averagely priced for excellent quality beer and cocktails - for price and quality alone she gets a FIVE.

Clean bar
Owner obsessively walked around keeping everything clean. Bar spotless, beer crisp, staff helpful and chatty.

Depends when you go...
I went to this pub on a Wednesday and found it not really hopping like the other people here describe - I then went back the following Friday and YES it was in keeping with the fun described.

Beer clearly well maintained and serviced and the bar was clean. Overall I give it a solid GOOD.

Local weekend pull centre
Some out of town friends and I spent a Saturady night here as part of our Hen weekend. The rooms were all spotless but there was no food. That fact would make me lean to giving this Pub 4 stars were it not for the fact that we had the best night ever in the Pub downstairs. The music is fab and the atmosphere great. Out of the 11 of us 9 of us pulled -(1 was married 1 about to be....) is it Ashford's pull centre? GREAT NIGHT OUT GIRLS.

Go 24hrs!
BBC online contacted the the Fat Fiddler in Ashford Kent as part of its national survey to ascertain whether Pubs would take advantage of the licences to open for up to 24 hours when changes come in later this year.

A snapshot survey by the BBC, which included The Fat Fiddler, suggested most would apply for an extra one or two hours, usually at the weekend.

The owner, Mr Poole, was quoted as sayin the vast majority of people should be treated like the adults they are and It is utterly ridiculous that any modern day government should deny the entire population the right to a drink when they want. We are after all a free society. That said this scheme will totally fail its premise - binge drinkers will simply binge for longer

Of the 20 respondents, none said they would apply for 24-hour licences.

The reluctance to stay open round-the-clock was largely due to the costs involved. However, Mr Poole, said he would consider all viable options.

Having visited this Pub my informed advice is - Fat Fiddler GO 24 HOURS!!

It's a singles bar
Good palce to go on a girls night! I've never gone out in Asford and being chatted up more. Problem is you've got competition in there - lots of singles. Is friday singles night? Loved the music and the policeman I end up snogging.

Good but my tummy says no cigar
Clean and cheap accommodation up stairs - pool and beer down stairs… no food though but other than that good.

A long happy hour makes a cheap night out. Full of talent and even when serving at regular price it's still very reasonably priced. Packed out though on both nights I was there and so had to que. Once in - it is what it is.

Like it!!
Clean, friendly but very busy on Friday & Saturday nights as it stays open until 2am. Accommodation is available too except the owner won't rent out any room unless you're staying a min of 2 nights. Only 20 pounds a night though so its great value if you have the need. It's honestly my favorite pub in Ashford.
