My preferences are for quiet pubs with good beer. I can enjoy modern pubs providing the beer and the service is good.

Bar Mondo, Dartford

Woeful. Excessively loud music, and unwelcoming yobs drinking outside.

The Horse and Groom, Dartford

This place really is awful. I can only imagine the reason why nobody has reviewed this pub in 5 years is that so few people have been in.

It's ideally situated for walkers on Dartford Heath - in fact it's directly on one of the prescribed walking routes. Sadly, the place is uninviting, and exists for the benefit of a small extended family of regulars and their hyperactive (and grossly overweight) children, who run amok around the pub, unsupervised.

The selection of beers in unexciting, and the menu is quite limited. I ordered a vegetable lasagne which took about 45 minutes to appear, and turned up cold. After sending it back and waiting another 20-odd minutes, it tasted OK, although not worth 8 I paid. My wife had a lamb shank, which looked like a TV dinner, and by all accounts was the toughest, most indigestible piece of meat she'd ever had.

The staff didn't seem too bothered that we were unsatisfied. I suppose it's just a couple less outsiders they have to worry about in future.

It's difficult to judge a pub on the strength of one Friday night, especially when the sun's out. No matter how hard the staff work, the place will be packed, and if it's in the middle of a big city, it will be full of total knobheads.

I had three good pints of beer in here on Friday night, and they were served promptly. At the weekend, when it's very busy, that's all you can hope for.

I'd happily go back again.
