Interesting interior attempt at a modern bar, largely successful, but with some very odd seating arrangements (teetering stools and cushions at small, square tables). Beer was alright, but only that, which is surprising as I presume it's a marquee venue for Shepherd Neame (who, in my opinion, do make some fairly bland ale). Food and prices perhaps inflated to reflect the prestige for which the brewery is striving.
I wasn't tempted to linger, as, while very busy with an agreeable crowd of mainly young drinkers and diners, it wasn't very relaxing, feeling a bit like a drinking corrall before dining. It's also difficult to get to by anything other than car, which is a good way to keep out hardened boozers and barflies, I suppose. Despite my experiences, I did appreciate it was being enjoyed by the presentable, attractive and happy young folk there, which is far better than the dirty, dingey boozers frequented by aggressive yobs to be found throughout Chatham.

This place has Sadly let down the brewery.
Lack lustre service. Beer tasting of pipe cleaner
Food mediocre at near London prices

Seems there's never many staff there for long and
given the turnover i'm unsurprised that consistent
quality is rife

Avoid if you value your insides !

A little spendy and not much atmos but still a decent enough pub with reasonable Sheps beer.

Not a lot of character at all but the Sunday lunch is very nice. Nice views of the river but that's about it. But food wise, it seems to be very nice indeed and the beer is good.

Shepherd Neame pub. Quite popular, and sometimes difficult to get a table. Feels more like a modern bar than a pub - and even though built in an old building in the old dockyard, lacks charm and atmosphere. It's OK, and the snug on the right is pleasant, but it's a little pricey, and not as good as you hope it will be.
