Having lived in walking distance of this Great Building for many years it has been somewhere I have taken guest for a drink and a meal many times in the past with no problems with the food.
NOT ANYMORE, this fab building has been taken over by the Green King chain. Not to be put off and having guests for the bank holiday weekend we went for lunch. Oh Dear... thinking under new management it would be trying to make a good impression. The table, vinegar bottle, and cutlery were all grubby. It gets worse. We ordered, Hunters Chicken, Jack with Cheese and Bacon, and a Lasagne. Service from the young girls was good. After a few minutes of eating my husband stated his Lasadne was cold in the middle. A very nice young lady changed it for him. After starting his second it happened again. Surely not, surely a temperature probe is used??? MY husband went without dinner from this point.
Asking to see the manager a grubby man appeared in a round neck T-shirt with a bad attitude. I asked if them had a probe? The man stated he had done it himself and he must have probed the wrong place!!!! WRONG PLACE. I will be writing to Green King for fear of incompetent staff cooking or should I say not reheating food correctly for the public. I will never ever eat here again, and this is such a shame as the building is so great for visitors and within walking distance of my home. I feel a 1rating is too much for our experience here. Anyone in the area who wants good food try The King and Queen at East Malling, Kings Arms in Boxley or The George at Trottiscliffe.
