Cheap food and you get a pretty good service. Not small portions. However it's loud and there are a lot of drunk people up one end. I didn't feel so comfortable going up to the bar but happy enough with everything else

Because its a cheap wetherspoons pub it seems people are just here getting drunk for cheap. Not a place you want to take your children. Food value for money but just uncomfortable with the mess some people get in.

We took the Tilbury Ferry over to Gravesend and found the Robert Pocock Wetherspoons. As it was Thursday it would have been rude not to have the Curry. I went for Vindaloo and my wife had the Lamb Rogan Josh. It was delicious and came with a drink each, the place is nice and clean also the staff are friendly... More

Always good cheap sherbets shame sometimes the clientele is of the all day variety which can put you off especially when ordering at the bar.

It had to be said, Wetherspoons venues vary widely, but the staff in this place, generally have a passion for their work. The food is better than the average Wetherspoons experience, and represents great value for money. All in all a great dinner. Nothing is too much trouble and if your meal isn't right they'll work to make it so.... More

Very busy, but we visited on a Saturday in December so not surprised. We all enjoyed the food and it came very promptly. Loved the meal deals that gave us a drink, thought it may only be soft drinks but we had wine and a gin&tonic. great way to end the day.
