Review of Gardner's Inn

Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

This pub used to be a little gem in Blackheath which used to be buzzing with locals and visitors passing by, the weekends would be great outside by the heaters or inside by the fire. However now unfortunately it seems management has changed and it's has slowly gone down hill and it's patronage numbers are a clear sign of that. My friends and I have visited here a few times recently and the most recent visit was our last. Although the food that is served is tasty enough, do be prepared to wait at least 45 mins to an hour to have it served to you, on a quiet night/day!! There are no more lounges around the fire, and the fire is rarely lit anyway! The heaters outside - you need to asked to have them turned on! It is Blackheath or Bleakheath has people say, so heating should be a priority, but is not. The old vibe is completely gone thanks to lack of people, the cold, the useless bar staff and the bright lights! What was once a lovely cosy local pub is now being run to the ground, I hope that the management is taken over by someone new before it is too late as this is a beautiful historic pub!

Super pub grub in a lovely environment ... very historic building and has a fab menu.
Love sitting here with a glass of red on cold winter days.
Highly recommended.

Dropped in here for a quick Sunday meal. They had slow cooked beef ribs on special which I ordered. Bloke ordered the fish.
Food arrived and it was massive and delicious. The ribs I so wanted to finish but couldn't. Slow cooked, sticky, fall apart finger food full of carnivorous deliciousness.
The fish was lovely, chips perfect and we sat out at the back in the sun.
Couple of glasses of red each - a very nice Sunday afternoon.

We called at this restaurant on a mid-week evening in Blackheath. It was not busy but the atmosphere was reasonable. My first surprise was no 'table service'. The meals were quickly prepared and were very tasty. The cost was reasonable and as indicated in the title the helpings were large. I have added some photographs.
