After reading the recent reviews I was some what hesitate to go to a new years eve meal. The restaurant area was refurbished and the staff was friendly. We all ordered different staters and they all looked and tasted lovely. Our mains and deserts followed just as at a high standard as the starters. Not sure if they hire in... More

Was part of a large group. We were split over 4 tables but accepted that as we were a fairly large group. We had pre booked and pre ordered our food so 1st meals came out quickly. However only one staff member bringing them out and after first meals brought out remaining were brought out one by one. The meals... More

With new management and a new menu which read delicious I was looking forward to our meal out. The staff are very friendly and it is a lovely pub. The food - for the price was a let down. My starter served on a warm plate but with salad on it- to me a big no. I had the lamb... More

Waitress was nice and the toilets are very clean and nice, the positives. Four people in front of us sent their food back as it was cold.

I have visited this bar several times since it has been re-furbished and it is a very nice comfortable place to enjoy a few pints in a friendly atmosphere. I have not eaten here but the food looks good.

Stopped here for a drink after the herne bay airshow and given it was only just off the main seafront it was surprisingly quiet - we were able to find a table and have a drink. Lots of people were eating what looked like good quality but standard pub fare (burgers, fish & chips etc). Also had a little beer... More
