user reviews of the Wheatsheaf, Gravesend

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A well ordered pub on a busy corner of the town. Can be noisy at weekends but during the week has the feel of a local town pub.

The wonderful green tiled faade and old Trumans sign are as old fashioned as the people who inhabit this rather dated and yet strangely homely pub. The horseshoe shaped interior has a dart board at one end and a small and pretty basic TV at the other. It will never win any prizes for architectural merit and the dcor is rather tired and drab. The plain carpet is a bit rough around the edges and the tiled fireplace has sadly been made redundant by a storage heater. There are a few bits worthy of noting, the shallow built in benches being especially quaint. The only Ale was Green King IPA although I nearly opted for a draught Toby bitter just for the hell of it. It really is that sort of pub. There are enough toothless pensioners and Vicky Pollard lookalikes to keep scriptwriters in work for years and yet, beneath the veneer is a real community pub spirit that is hard to find. The youngsters seem happy to hang around chatting even though some old codger with a walking stick was feeding the jukebox with wall to wall Des OConnor (I joke not) and the numerous Christmas Cards (review was written in December before pub was added to the site) that were pinned to the bar frame show that the locals hold the staff in high esteem. This strange mix of customers, styles and tastes seem to cohabitate happily with each other and makes for a quite welcoming atmosphere. It is not a pub that will appeal to many people but I do find I have a strange affection and curiosity for the place.
