The pub is in a great setting situated on Cotton Lake and there are some nice outdoor seats overlooking the lake. The decor is very modern which is in complete contrast to the two other Shepherd Neame pubs in Dartford. The service was OK although I have never had food at the pub. The drinks prices seem very high but... More

Have been here a few times for good food, and a calming view as it overlooks a great little space with a pond and wildlife. A great hidden spot on a sunny day. The food isn't amazing but is good for a pub and service is fair. Go for the sun and quiet!

The wharf is on the water, which in clement weather is a great place to sit, drink and chat. The food is well cooked and the menu varied. The staff are friendly and attentive. There is an upstairs and a downstairs. Well worth a visit.

Ok so I've been in Dartford for the last month and a half with work. In that time I have visited many watering holes in the local vicinity and I can whole heartedly say that this is bar far the best and most friendliest pub. The staff here can't do enough for you. They work their socks off. Led by... More

The food was awful! Over priced and too fussy? My daughter had a tuna sandwich which was dry and hardly any tuna!!!! My advise go back to the good... More

Dirty sticky uncleaned and also uncleared tables. Bar staff that ignore you to chat to their colleagues behind the bar. I will not be returning and would not recommend to others.

Went there on Sunday for lunch with my family. There was a total of 13 (including 2 children and 1 baby) as well as 2 dogs. We were accommodated inside which was nice as it is very rare these days to find somewhere to eat that allows dogs inside. We ordered the food separately but asked for it to be... More
