Very good food and good value for money. I used to use this all the time when I lived in gravesend so coming back after many years it was a pleasant experience.

Visit here with friends and family, typical steak house, usually serving good food. Suitable for families and has a beer garden and also a premier in. Located at the rear of the pub...

My advice would be to any anyone ordering the steak open sandwich is to bring an set of teeth with you, as after so much chewing your going to need them as the steak was so tough. Service was ok, nothing special. Restaurant was clean.

Dissapointed that they served chips which had obviously been laying around and just heated up, was there in the evening and place very busy which I appreciate but I would not have minded waiting a bit longer for fresher chips to be made to accompany my meal, I especially chose to go there for my birthday meal .

Was in Gravesend for a couple of days and went in for some food. Although it's typical pub food I must admit it was very nice. Nice staff and well worth a visit.

How can a bulk-buying chain charge these prices for such lacklustre food? You dont expect much from the Brand but most dishes start at £15 and it is really poor. Offhand at best service. I wasnt even paying and I was outraged. Please, drive on past. Almost anywhere else in Gravesend will give you better value for money

Popped in just on way back from trip out and me and the wife ordered a surf and turf each when the food came out the first thing we noticed was the arrangement of the food, it looked as though they just threw it on the plate then when we went to eat it the steaks were tough and chewy.... More
