The Tollgate has been refurbished and renamed the Clipper for sometime. TV screens have been disposed of, so the yob element has vanished - at least during the day. Food IMHO is better than wetherspoons. Real ale choice is limited to bombardier + changing guest (not normally anything interesting) but until recently this was 1.49 pint (probably more now) - and quality was fine. OK its a Smith & Jones chain pub but worth having a pint or two on an
afternoon. Rating : the Bombardier (on several visits) : not a beer a like but, 8/10. Food 7 /10. Good value.

As someone else has mentioned, The Tollgate is a pretty soulless place. It reminds me of The Furze Wren in Bexleyheath, just without the hundreds of customers. Whilst I dont think it's awful, it doesn't do anything particularly well - it's just very middle of the road. The bar staff always seem bored, the punters always seem bored the drink selection is boring and the food is always "just ok".

I don't want to give it a bad review, but I cant really find anything to say that's particularly good either.

Distinctly average. Sorry.

This is a ghastly pub. The second time I was in I got threatened by some local troublemakers. Go over the road to wetherspoons - a definitive nostars

Very large pub which does nothing for the atmosphere, which is generally empty and depressing at any other time when there isn't football on, when it's just noisy and unwelcoming.

The staff work hard but are generally unwelcoming and look to be counting the minutes until they can leave. The food is quite Wetherspoons-esque poor and has clearly seen a microwave at some point.

The beer is cheap but generally of poor quality and it is very dark inside which adds nothing.

Overall, an awful pub. Even if you needed a cheap drink, Wetherspoons is opposite (which is only slightly better).

To big inside and not very comfortable.
