Took my mother for lunch here today, sat mum down and ordered our drinks at the bar, was then told no food was available because they had a large party in. This is fair enough but please tell me before I have ordered drinks so as to give me the option of going to another pub was most annoying.

Hello Peter, I am sorry you were not told before you ordered your drinks. I have to agree that this would have been better and I would have thought they would have told you. I will tell all our staff to warn customers in future and I thank you for taking the time to highlight this. Although our food is... More

Busy friendly atmosphere.... Efficient , pleasant bar staff / waitress.... Visited with a friend and both opted for a quick burger and chips with our drinks... We were sat down quickly and the food was prompt but disappointing. The burgers and buns were dry and the chips were under cooked... Would go back but would opt for something different from... More

Dear Caroline, Thanks for taking the time to review and leave feedback. I am sorry you were disappointed with the burgers. They should not have been dry as we make them ourselves. I have messaged you asking for the date and time of your visit so I can look into this further and also pass on your positive comments to... More

Wife wanted to try it and fancied a burger. I said, its a pub, you won't be happy (we normally make our own burgers at home, its easy, haven't had a pre made pattie in 10 years) . But she had seen the menu and was insistent. Hence the average. It was a pub burger, she actually left half of... More

We have had lunch here several times. The service is excellent, the staff cheerful and friendly and the food, especially the wonderful bread, is well served and very tasty. Great range of beers too. Plenty of space so good choice of tables and there's a small garden too.

Went here in a group for lunch and we were catered to pretty effectively. Good solid food of the sort that sticks to your ribs. And they serve a good range of beers, too.

We had spent the morning in Favershan for their Open Gardens Day, and were looking for somewhere for Sunday Lunch. We discounted the eateries in the Market Square as they were all pretty full due to the market being on. We chanced upon the Old Wine Vaults which were advertising Sunday Lunch for £7.95 per head. We were a party... More

Mr Wheeler thank you for taking the time to review us after what must have been a busy day! I think this was one of the most successful open gardens days we have had. Faversham also runs open houses in July and this is also an excellent way of seeing the historic buildings and some great residents! There are also... More

We decided to start our holiday in Faversham with a Sunday lunch out and as it was a nice day sat in the cosy garden at the rear of the pub. There was an interesting variety of ciders and beers on offer, and a good number of people eating lunch. The food came in good time and at a reasonable... More

Went for Mother's Day lunch. The place smelt like the carpets hadn't been cleaned since smoking was allowed inside and there was a reduced menu for Mother's Day. At only £3 for a starter I was straight away concerned about the quality of the food. It took 35 minutes for 4 cold starters to arrive and when they did they... More

Thank you for reviewing us. Sorry for the late reply but I wanted to talk to all staff on duty that day and review the cctv for timings and the food you were served.
