The building beckons you, a small central village location and leaded windows. At a glance you expect this to be a hostelry of merit.

Appearances are however highly deceptive. I have not been back since they tried to charge me £10 for a few paltry slices of pork and coleslaw under the guise of it being a village fete and hog roast.

This time I decided to venture in for saturday lunch. This could be a central London "plastic pub" with its extensive wine list and pretentious menu. However although it may aspire to be everything I despise it fails in that too for in the City atleats they have a decent choice of real ales. This is a lager palace for anyone who has lost their tastebuds and had a lobotomy.

Thus I walked up the Tonbridge road and went to the ever reliable Golding Hop.

Enjoyed an overpriced and bland meal amongst the company of some OTT city banker sorts, who were quaffing the champagne as if it was Christmas bonus-time already. The serving rugby brute - whose mind was clearly more focused on London Irish than London Pride - did not exactly make us feel welcome. Things took a turn for the worse when he asked matter-of-factly if I wanted to join him for a 'scrum'; completely ambivalent to this fan-dangled new-found term, I agreed.

Boy, he looked strong, and had two big fat thighs like a thoroughbred stallion. He disappeared, and I heard him calling for me from deep in the kitchen, and then found him sitting on the worktop, nothing but a Sports Direct mug covering his modesty, with his fat thighs far apart and his face deep red with anger and a cane in his hand. He whipped me HARD, like an angry nurse whipping a child's bottom, and with that I realised I had been mislead, made my excuses and left through the back door as quickly as I could, only to then be accosted by a very odd little half-ling in the car park who insisted on calling me "Daddy" and asked if I wanted to be spanked in his BMW-Mini. A very odd pub indeed and also a lack of real cask ales here, so I cannot rate higher than a 4.

Visited for the first time recently on a Saturday lunchtime and was pleasantly surprised. Although a Shepherd Neame pub the Late Red was in good condition and reasonably priced. Food, whilst not cheap, was good value for what you got and we would definitely visit again.

The comment made by frederickson is extremely reminiscent of the landlord himself, right down to the speech mannerisms so I suspect the revue was a valid one.

I could not disagree with you more!

The food is excellent and so is the service. The landlord, with whom i personally know, is the nicest friendliest guy your ever likely to meet, and i know for a FACT that he would not ask anyone to leave if he did not have good reasoning to do so.

You painted a very pretty picture in your elaborate review, im sure there was another ugly side to the story, which of course, your not going to divulge in.

So, your poor attempt at bringing down The George and Dragon, has been most effortlessly foiled.

This has been an honour, i thank you.
