Last 2 visits a bit chaotic but service and food still good

May's visit had the smoke alarm going off very narrowly averted so some delays to food. My stroppier friend complained and got us a reduction on the bill. However the staff got through it all well - and good-naturedly. June's visit got us delayed at the very start: a new booking system that... read more

Very disappointed with the service and food, we had a table booked for 11 of us at 8.30 eventually got our starters at 9.40, followed by our mains at 10.15. Staff didn't seem bothered when we complained, we eventually left the restaurant at 10.50 after having a very low/average meal. Doubt we will go back

Next month due to be refurbished but all the staff helpful and friendly and such a good choice of menu and good value for money. This a Beefeater and the premier inn is close by. Very close to roads into London as well as not to far from Gravesend mainline station which has the Hi Speed service to St Pancras... More

I have been staying at the Premier Inn at the rear of the Restaurant since January, over the last 6 months I have probably ate 90% of the dishes on the menu, and I must say I am yet to have a poor meal. The staff in there are really friendly and helpful, and its very reasonably priced. The only... More

I have visited a few times, ideal for a quick bite for lunch time, although can be very busy. It is a chain and the staff are friendly and more importantly clean and tidy on the few times I have visited.

I know its a beefeater but the new menu is really good. I've been using this restaurant for years but their food recently has been exceptional good, particularly when you consider their prices. The prawn cocktail or the potato skins for starters are good and the any of the steaks are excellent, plenty of flavour, tender and cooked just how... More

Staying at the Premier Inn so eating here today, nice friendly staff. Good selection of ales so just quaffing a Spitfire. It's a Beefeater so the menu is the same as all the rest but a pretty good choice. Lovely fresh food, and quick service.

My family have been customers of the bar and restaurant for many years and have seen many different changes. There is a playground behind the restaurant to occupy the children. The food here is either very good or very bad, the menu is uninspiring and you tend to feel hemmed in as there is not much space between tables, it... More
