We came for lunch on a tuesday when they do steak deals. We had a great piece of meat each with honest sides. The meal includes a drink, we chose to have a pint. And all of it for just £6.09!

The meals were up to Wetherspoon standard and were enjoyed. I ate breakfasts and an evening meal there.

We visited Faversham and met my son and family there, we looked for somewhere to eat and came across this place, I could not believe the amount of food including drinks we were served, absolute bargain, even the 2 childrens meal we ordered were excellent too.

After a dismal curry night in December, we ventured back for the breakfast before work! Good value as always, no decaff coffee (twice) but a good fat boys breakfast with extra toast. Once again the room was cold and even in the morning was badly lit. Staff polite cheerful and efficient. Will return, but it will take a lot to... More

Cold wet and miserable from delayed flights and on our way to the Holiday Inn Inn,Canterbury. The thought of a curry special enticed us to dig out my favourite pub chain, wish we had driven on! Cold and dim, but staff friendly and efficient! Curry appeared to be small in portion size, even with additional sambals and side dishes! The... More

We had a pleasant early evening meal here. The pub is clean. The food was well cooked and enjoyable. The waitress was pleasant enough, but made several mistakes in our order and although we did get the right food in the end accuracy didn't seem to be a priority.

Usual 'Spoons Sunday Lunch but was very good and very pleasant sitting in the Conservatory. service was excellent and as mentioned by others ...A GROUND FLOOR TOILET! Would go back... More

Yes. a rarity for Wetherspoons, a downstairs toilet. Visiting our friends in Faversham we walked to this pub/restaurant in order we could enjoy a bevvy or two. The weather was unexpectably hot so us men had a pint of Stowford Press cider whilst the ladies had coffee. First time I'd tried this make of cider, had a nice bite to... More
