Classic pub food - great location

Over looking the man made lake on the business park this mock tudor property caters for all tastes. Seats outside are clean with a balance between shaded and non shared areas. Food is tasty, hot and of classic British Fayre. Recommend Chefs meals on right hand side of menu.

We had to stay at the Dartford Hilton for the night and did not fancy paying there bar prices so walked to the Wharf. The welcome was good and we had a bar meal which was very nice and reasonably priced.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on our way back from Cambridge. The Wharf is one of Shepherd Neame's Outlets and we decided to try there. Unusual location, very close to the Dartford Crossing, but quiet and with a lovely outlook over a lake. We sat inside as it was windy and raining outside. Staff were friendly and helpful,... More

I went to The Wharf with friends for some drinks only to find a mouse run from under our table! Into some curtains, after notifying staff I was horrified to find a very unconcerned attitude towards its presence in the eating area with staff saying they've seen it before, that it may have run up the curtains and that after...

What a dump, reminded me of what Butlins is, a cheap place for cheap holidays for people with noisy kids Booming noise and what some call music, and the food is poor

The Wharf is a bit of a hidden gem! A really nice pub, with a beautiful lakeside setting - but located slap bang in the middle of the very large Crossway's Buisness Park in view of the QE Bridge in Dartford – completely surrounded by modern office blocks, unless you are local, most people don't even know it exists! It's... More

A fairly nice place to visit as it's by a lake. We visited The Wharf last night (15/4/15) and found it a little busy but still lots of empty tables, ie, they weren’t running at full capacity. In short this is about really poor service. Why does the food take so long to arrive?!! We ordered our food at 19.37... More

Upon arrival at the Wharf we went down to the carvery for Sunday lunch, we were told that there was no room and the only option was to keep going down to check if a table had freed up. This system instantly seemed odd, as we were unable to leave a name and be next on the list, meaning a... More
