WETHERSPOON'S USUAL HIGH STANDARDS AT THE VERY FRIENDLY ROBERT POCOCK

Whilst in Gravesend to see the fabulous matinee show "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" at the Woodville Hall Theatre on Saturday 2 May, my wife and I called in Wetherspoon's Robert Pocock restaurant for a pre-show lunch.

The prices are fantastic and the food is great. I didn't think I would like the food as much as I did but I was so impressed. I had veggie sausages mashed and peas. I didn't know whether to eat it or climb it!!! Well worth a visit for a quick meal.

Stopped off for breakfast. One of the best cooked Eggs Benedict we've had - runny and hot egg, not poached to death like one! Friendly staff, clean toilets.

Have eaten here before but not for a while. Tends to get very busy and sometimes have to queue to order. Large choice of both food and drinks at very reasonable prices. We were served fairly quickly and the food was good and portions quite large. Being so busy it tends to be noisy but if you want a good... More

A sound place to eat and drink with predictable but unadventurous food. Good value - cheap beer and food. Good for impoverished family lunches and impoverished teenagers in the evening.

Food is as expected, at this kind of venue, usually served quite fast and adequate for average meal at anytime. Shame that management of this venue let it down, or one of them does, as mentioned in earlier review by lady reviewer - the man that runs other staff down and seems to think he is more important than others,...
