Surely the basic principles of a good pub are good beer served in good condition by a friendly host in a convivial atmosphere,
I have experienced none of these here.
Vast amounts of money have obviously been spent here, difficult to see how a good return will be made.
As for "one post Kurt"... either he has not been anywhere else or i suspect he/she has a personal axe to grind.
Could do so much better.

I took an old school friend here last night who I had only just met up with again after 20 odd years. We took her 2 young children along too, seeing as we knew it had a play area. 2 staff on last night behind the bar and both were cheery and welcoming. Orders taken without any hastle and food arrived promptly. Fresh & hot. Kids were made to feel welcome too, which I thought was a nice touch. Overall, we had an enjoyable evening.

Seems to me that the main use of this website is to slag off establishments when the tiniest little thing isn't to someone's liking. Instead of whinging about it behind their backs, grow a backbone and dote some cajones and approach them directly. Trouble is with most of you, you'd probably prefer to be a gutless, faceless, whinger rather than ask for a pub/restaurant to address whatever isn't to your liking. If you don't approach them then how on earth can you expect them to sort things out for you so you can leave positive feedback? Totally beyond me!

Recently visited The Rose Revived with a friend. Being a vegetarian, I found it very difficult to find something that I wanted to eat. I am not a fan of mushrooms so was very disappointed when I saw that mushroom stroganoff was the only veggie option on the main course menu. I had to go for two small things, so I got some garlic bread and 'soup of the day'. The garlic bread was very yummy. But as for the soup, If I wanted Heinz tomato soup then I could have gone to the shop and bought my own for 50p. It genuinely was Heinz. I also noticed that anchovies were on the menu with a "vegetarian" logo next to it. This is incorrect, as you probably know.

I found it very comfortable in the pub, it was nicely decorated and had a lovely garden, but I was just completely letdown about the soup. I also visited the website and found it difficult to use.

Also found barman quite patronising.

All together, I would give it a 5/10 - 21 Apr 2010 15:11
Let me start by saying if you are thinking of going to this place, do yourself a favour and do not bother! I can honestly say this is the worst pub i have ever been to in my life (and i've been to many)! Firstly, 6 of us booked a table for the 20th Feb 2010 a few weeks before hand. When we arrived at the pub there was no smile/hello or any acknowledgment what so ever. We had to wait to over 30 minutes to be served and there was not even a 'sorry' or 'thanks for waiting'! The pub was not even busy. They had one barmaid who just kept wandering off!
Finally after half an hour we finally got our drinks! We then had to pester the staff for a futher 15 minutes to show us to our table (by this time it was 8.00pm, the table was booked for 7.30pm). We were taken to the table, sat down and realised there were no menus. We continued to wait for another half an hour for the menus to arrive after asking numerous times, yet still they didn't bother. We then asked for the last time saying if no-one comes over within 10 minutes we would leave and suprise, suprise they still didn't bother! We ended up walking out after two hours of waiting and did not even get an apology!! I have been to some dives before, but this one really does top the lot by a long way, plus the drinks are well over priced!!! If your looking for a good night out for food or just a few drinks, do not go here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If i could rate it below zero i would!!

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.
