Used to be a busy "Spit and Sawdust" and used to be very clean. The owners have changed. and it seems the Pub has dropped its standards. The Wat Tyler used to have regular guest Ales now its more like a Shepherd Neame Pub on the Pumps with Master Brew (Dartford has several Shepard Neame Pubs already selling that stuff) . Lines are not as clean as they used to be, and I cant tell which side of the Bar more Alcohol is drunk on.

I don't go Dartford much these days but only went for The Wat Tylers OP which is not great any more. The Pint Glass seems to have seen better days sadly.

Narrow 1 bar pub located at the start / end of the High St opposite the 'spoons.

2 entrances both bring you in facing the bar.

4 beers on draught, Courage Best, Theakston's Old Peculiar and 2x guest ales. I had a pint from Westerham Brewery, Puddledock Porter (not bad, but not very dark) and a pint of Theakston's Old Peculiar..which was very good.

Complaint about the glasses, both of the ones I had were smeary and felt tacky on the outside...maybe a dishwasher problem!

Friendly pub, with a bit of charm, a few friendly regulars in making this feel like a community pub which is nice but not one of my recent favorites.

Lovely Pub soon to be taken over by present Manager Running it, unlike other Pub's in Dartford it really is a Lovely Pub, as it has kept its Traditional Character. As a former Publican I can vouch that when I have been in there the Glass's are crystal clean. The Ale is always in great form.. For a Traditional Locals Pub its very welcoming and the Place is kept very Clean.

If you don't like Sports Bars, Chav filled dumps or Budget Chain Pubs its worth spending your Money Here. It's not expensive but does not attract the rubbish the rest of the Pubs in The High Street Do... And another great twist to this Pub is its History as a Coaching House and has also been known to be Haunted.

The first time I entered the Wat Tyler a few years ago, I felt a little insecure as it appeared very much a locals pub with loud banter reverberating around the pub.

The more time I spent there, I realised that it was all quite friendly and felt welcoming. The people there were loud but good natured and I began to feel like I fitted in.

They have a great range of beers which are all reasonably priced. The pub has a lot of history and this feels evident inside with little nooks and crannies everywhere.

Some people avoid "locals" pubs but this is one where you wouldn't feel out of place and a nice antidote to the soulless Tollgate and Wetherspoons lurking closely nearby.

Overall, a pretty good and deceptively friendly pub It doesn't hide the fact that it's a traditional pub and you wouldn't want it too. Well worth a couple of pints.
