Nina Minhard, her older brothers, Thomas and Patrick and their mum and uncle, Tracy Minhard and Matthew Harrison, began thinking about running their own business last March.

They wanted to showcase their multi-cultural heritage alongside their love for pubs.

Nina, 24, said: "Running one was always something we wanted to do and the pandemic gave us the time to do it.

"We stumbled across the location and the building was amazing.

"Before we turned it into a pub, it was owned by a historian who held educational workshops and sold antiques from his family home."

The Minhards have always worked in pubs but never had the chance to run their own.

Nina added: "This is something we can do as a family.

"Our dad is from Austria and our mum is from England so we wanted to offer something that represented our mixed cultures.

"Austrian beer is nice but you can't really get it here so we decided to sell, not only Kent beer, but also Austrian beverages.

"We hope to be able to host events and gigs in the future too."

The name of the pub also reflects the families sailing hobby and the slang wording for being drunk.

Nina said: "This has been a family venture and we have all chipped in."

The pub's garden will be open from April 12 and will be able to seat around 35 to 40 people.
