Walking back towards town and its a stop in the Jolly Drayman which is in the shadow of the huge and a tad garish Guru Nanak Temple.

The pub appeared in the 2015 GBG but does not appear in the 2016 edition. A strange looking pub from the outside as it seems a mish mash, upon entering you are immediately greeted by very low beams and lots of wooden panelling, the bar has a very old feel to it.

Darkstar Hophead, Skinners Betty Stogs, Whitstable Brewery Christmas Spirit and Batemans' Rosey Nosey on the hand pumps. My pint of Hophead was drinkable.

Another quiet pub with only 1 other punter in when we first arrived , during our half an hour here the crowd swelled to at least 9 including us and the barmaid!

The well-kept front garden was quite inviting and certainly doesn’t have the height restrictions that pub does, being 6ft 4” the low beams were a bit of a challenge!

The Drayman is no more than an average pub with well-kept ale, ticked so no reason for me to return.

Nice little pub, old y worldly feel like the old days , nice selection of ales and friendly landlady.
Shame about the words F**k off scrawled on the table though!

Will be back on the next tour of Gravesend!

Went to the beer festival here this weekend. Twenty odd beers and some rare ones, I like this pub. It has a cosy feel to it with the low ceilings. And a sexy bar maid which also helps.

Great traditional pub nice enclosed garden, very friendly, landlady has a passion for real ale and it shows in the superb quality and range beers.

Great 'local' with good selection of real ales.

However, Management seem to hace reached their' comfort zone' and choice and quality of beers beginning to wane.

shame really as it is one of the best pubs in Gravesend.
