Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A huge thanks to Danny and his lovely sister for their time, patience and buffet. We held our mother's wake in the function room at the three Daws. The finger buffet was as ordered and very nice too. Including the fish fingers. Danny and Stephanie...(?) Worked their magic behind the bar and looked after everyone beautifully. Danny, we salute you :-)More

We went to this pub twice on a recent visit to Gravesend. Nice pub with great history on the walls. We had a lovely meal as well. Lamb Cutlets were superb. Right by the Thames with great views.

When London Port was busy, with lots of ships anchoring in Gravesend Reach awaiting berths further upriver, the Three Daws was one of the pubs favoured by seamen from all over the world. This meant it was also the preferred boozer for the various locals...who worked in the shipping world. As such, it was a vibrant pub with a wee bit of a rough edge. Move forward many years and it is a modern style pub that clearly sees dining as a major part of the business but, pleasingly, still has plenty of room for the simple drinker. It’s a very smart pub and the service was welcoming and friendly. The only downside is that some of the bar staff clearly haven’t been taught how to pour lager and were filling glasses to the brim, with no head, resulting in flat beers. Simple solution - ask all bar staff to look up countless lager adverts and see that they all have pictures of crisp lagers with a generous white topping. To be fair, when I took my lifeless pint back, another member of staff changed it and, at my request, put a decent head on it.More

Great pub, overlooking the River Thames. Eccentric local customers, great customer service, reasonably priced, fantastic food and a fabulous selection of beers, wines and spirits. Food menu is selective but cooked very well, not everyones taste, but the liver and bacon was glorious. Definitely a...very good local pub.More

Definitely steps to the front entrance that we used. As with the previous answers, worth a call ahead to confirm whether there is a better entrance for people with mobility issues.
