The Rose Revived, Hadlow

I took 2 german friends there yesterday, with 2 young children, it looked like a good idea, with the play area outside.
However, the garden was overrun, so we sat inside and waited...... and waited.....
finally a young girl came over, with the attitude of someone whoh just couldn't be bothered as time was short and she was very busy and important. Dressed in black, the sneer would have been more appropriate if the food was being served in much smaller portions and a lot more expensive somwhere in notting hill.
We ordered, kids food first please, they get cranky otherwise, oh and some drinnk I said as she turned to walk away.
The cokes arrived, 5 mins a beer appeared, and finally the kids drinks. 2 bottles of water please? they arrived quickly but no glasses. Glasses I asked? Sorry, 10 mins, I went to the bar, those glasses? oh sorry, and they finally landed 5 mins later.
Without going on and on like a dull dear diary, the food quality was ok, the service shocking, and being a local, I know there there are many better gastro pubs within a very shhort distance.
Try the Carpenters Arms, the Hadlow Arms, The Ivy Hatch in Tonbridge (which has just been refurbished) or for proper pub and large garden, try the Bush Blackbird and Thrush, half the price, twice as friendly.
