Still a decent alehouse. Seemed as bit more run down then when I was here last time (no access through front door, large window broken) but it kind of added to the character and made it feel more of a proper boozer.

Best pub in Gravesend! Fine range of ales, served well by friendly, welcoming staff. Had two very nice pints of Adnam's Ghost Ship, which I'd never found on tap before locally. Large bar at front was filled with lunch-time diners enjoying some decent looking food (didn't order lunch myself). Adjoined to the garden at the rear, which sits under a lovely, large tree, and appears to form part of the Elizabeth Gardens pedestrian thoroughfare along the river, so no views from the seating owing to the high sea wall, but nonetheless a very pleasant retreat from the town centre. It's a good enough reason to return to Gravesend, certainly by day- no idea if the clientele and atmosphere are any different by night. I hope it exercises a stringent door policy to keep out the yobs that spoil Gravesend for normal people.
Overall, this pub and the surrounding area are set to benefit from much needed redevelopment in the main town. I hope it doesn't change the pub though, as it's good enough as it is.

Inexplicable attempt to gentrify the drug-soaked pub clientele of Gravesend. Please! Sharp interiors, subtle lighting and feature walls will only enrage the degenerate populace of this circle of Kentish hell. They reject modernity and, indeed, pelt buses as the unacceptable face of progress.

Good pub, good choice of ales.
Staff not as friendly as they were when we first came in 8 months ago, all the good ones have left.
Still, great atmosphere and friendly clientel.

Spent a very relaxing afternoon in here. I don't know why we haven't tried it before. There were plenty of good ales to choose from, at reasonable prices, very decent food, which was made for us even though they had officially stopped serving - which is unusual in this day and age. The staff were very friendly and on hand if you needed them - and were not in your face when you didn't. Lovely pub, and looking forward to visiting again very soon.
