Found a nice shady table but had a long wait for food. Disappointing as not pub prices. Did not live up to expectations, will not go back.

It's no good having a lovely setting like this and not training staff or providing good food. When I went to the bar it felt like I'd intruded in someone's living room - staff 'banter' should be kept to a staff room as should bad language. Staff just don't seem bothered or interested in providing a good service - the... More

This pub is the works local and on a blazing hot day like today it was ideal for a quick drink in the sunshine. However, the drinks here are extremely pricey and the staff need to go on a customer service course! Apart from the young lad that actually served us our food, the bar staff were really rude and...

Excellent steak. We now choose to come here whenever we fancy steak. It's great to go somewhere and not be rushed. Relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Midweek it is very quiet and you have a choice of tables in the bar area or downstairs in the restaurant. Always had great food here. The bar service for drinks and food is better... More

This did not take place due to the horrendous traffic problems at the Dartford crossing. Most unfortunate as my brother missed a nice clean pub, attentive staff and the best chips i have had in a long time. Whatever happened to the free toll once the crossing was paid for ?

Dining with various food intolerances and coeliac disease can be problematic, but nothing was too much trouble here. I had emailed via the pub website to enquire if I could be fed, and was delighted to have the offer of a call back to discuss my needs. I took up the challenge to have something a bit more inventive than... More

We visited several times while stayiong at local hotels. Good food, good price and friendly staff. Being an ex-Greenhithe local, I wish it had been there before I left!

Both my Partner and myself were very ill after eating at this awful place. And were both laid up in bed with sickness and upset stomach and unable to work. Self employed and lost earnings. The food ( a starter and then a Sunday roast ) was shockingly bad, spuds like concrete, very slow service, we have made numerous complaints... More
