Visited JDW at Herne Bay for lunch the othe Sunday. Pleasant atmosphere, reasonably clean, good beer and food.
I know what to expect from JDW pubs and this met my expectations.

“45 Minutes before meal arrived”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Not one clean table to be found so we sat at table 43 I thought it wont be long before its cleaned. How wrong was I , it was only when somebody came to check what we had ordered (40 minutes after we had sat down) that I asked if she could clean the, table you would have thought I had asked her to rob a bank as the had a look of shock on her face. The table was cleaned onto my lap and the rest of the rubbish was pushed up the other end of the table . The staff only had time to talk to friends its the customers that pay the wages not the friends . How many of the staff would like it if they got the same service NONE .If you go to the Saxon Shore take a book to save you getting board.As for the new toilets they were not very clean . With luck Ramsgate will have a Wetherspoons soon so I will be able to go to my local one .

“Full Of Kids Running Around!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Absolutely horrible - a dive!

JD Wetherspoons need to clean up their act in certain places. The 'spoons in Margate is almost as dire!

“Rowdy kids amusement park.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Awful. Full of screaming kids and then drunk teenagers in the evening. Takes forever to get served and staff will not deal with unacceptable behaviour from drunk, abusive teenagers, who are most definitely under age and I don't blame them. Been a few times, in the hope it was a one off. Ordering the same dish, does not mean you'll get the same from one visit to the next. There is even a new kids play park opposite, to ensure you get the maximum amount of screaming kids....who should be in the park on a nice sunny day.
What a croc!
