Shame about the food as the location is amazing.

After going to a few Beefeaters all over the country I finally decided to go to one of my local ones. While trying to order food a lot of the menu wasn't available and the staff didn't seem to be very apologetic. When our food eventually came it tasted okay but it wasn't anything special.

Having eaten at Beefeaters around the country, my overall opinion is that they are over priced for what you get, but food normally satisfactory. However this was far from being an enjoyable visit! My beer was flat and lifeless, my wife's ribs were stone cold, and the side salad was pitiful, the atmosphere was more like being in s cafeteria... More

We visited this venue as we used to go here when we were young...and it hasn't changed at all since 1978. The decor in this restaurant is disgraceful, for a substantial organisation to own and run a restaurant that relies solely on the great location and thinks that by spraying a decrepit interior with textured beige and brown paint it...

Great if you like lager, as no ales on tap. This is unforgivable for a Kent pub. Staff that appear completely demoralised, due to the constant apologising they have to do. Badly managed. Unless you like soulless corporate feeding troughs, give this a wide berth.

Lovely location by the river with lots of outdoor seating - although only a limited menu is available if you are sitting outside or in the bar area. The downstairs bar area didn't look as dirty as it did on my last visit, but it's still a bit dark and dingy. The upstairs restaurant area is a lot nicer and... More

This pub and restaurant is not far from where we live, and we like to walk to it on a nice day and have a few drinks and sometimes a meal. The pub menu is good, and the Beefeater also. I'm disabled, and in a wheelchair, and most of the place is accessible (accessible toilet doubles as a baby changing... More

Went for a meal with family on Friday night. Started with poor choice of available wine. Sat down waiting to be seated at our table. Sticky, wet tables and dirty chairs. Led to our table on time. Starters took an age to arrive, mushrooms were overlooked and tasteless. My main was steak, so much fat and gristle cut off, half... More
