Good service from the waitress. The prawns in the starter were still icy with no sauce but apart from that the food was very good. Meat pie portion was quite small though
Only disappointment was my favourite dish taken off the menu which was the lamb chops l look forward to.lt has been replaced with smoke haddock instead .
I do love the scenery and the friendly staff who make it such a welcoming place to come back to.lf l lived closer would come more frequently.but living in dartford l come now and again.keep up high standards.well done.
A lovely roast dinner, huge portions and all the accompaniments.
Think we must have caught the cook on an off day - booked on recomendation
All issues were addressed , so would be unfair to leave a negative review as staff tried hard to right things
Will try again at a later date as feel it may be better
On arrival they didn't have us booked in very disappointing as I booked on the internet. We then had to wait 40 minutes for a table .
Family meal - everything was very good
This was the first time we had been here. I will definitely be visiting again. The service was fantastic despite being a little early for our table. Didn’t have to wait for anything. We all went for the roast lunch option which has to be one of the tastiest i’ve Eaten out. Was excellent value for money.
Totally disappointed as table was given away with it being dickensfestival and they do not accept bookings.to this effect.took my custom elsewhere.
Very hospitable all staff very friendly and attentive food basic but good and no pretentious to be anything else
Good stuff and will go again in area
Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch, food was good, atmosphere was good. Just the service seemed like hard work, we had to draw the attention of waitress a few times, a little attentiveness would have improved things and maybe not all standing together at one end chatting. This is only minor and I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend.
Good food, good service and good drink selection
Would definitely come back and recommend it
Parking may not always be easy and may need a little perseverance.
The staff were quite friendly and helpful. The dining area was medium sized by the windows with a partial view of the waterway and the bridge.
It was pretty quiet and relaxed for around 7pm on a Friday but became more busier an hour and a half later.
We had an opportunity to sample the beers they had on tap that evening with some decent sized sample glasses.
The food on the specials board looked interesting and and there were some decent options in the main menu. The food was good, well prepared and straightforward. It could have perhaps been a bit more imaginatively put together and with nicer ingredients, but tasted fine. The puddings were also good.
It was a satisfying place to have a chat and had a relaxed vibe to it.
4 of us and we had a sharing starter which was really nice. Good selection of main meals, I had the steak which was cooked well. Good size portions and the service was good, especially as the guy was also serving behind the main bar.
Happy to recommend as a good value meal and would happily eat there again
Warm welcome and big portions of home cooked food. Will definitely go back. Perfect location for lunch after visiting the tourist hotspots. Friendly and well presented staff.
As always excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We have Sunday lunch about once every couple of months here as they are very accommodating with children
A nice restaurant very friendly and helpful staff, food was good and size was also good. In all the Sunday lunch was perfect, great time had....
As always great service and amazing food, landlord and landlady are customer facing which is rare and lead from the front!
Football in two bars and thumping beat in restaurant
