Popped in for a meal on Saturday afternoon. Very busy, but the staff were excellent and although busy, were courteous , friendly and efficient. My wife has to have gluten and dairy free meals, and the manager came over and explained what was available, and she had a burger with gluten free buns, and fries. All were excellent. My self and my daughter had Billingsgate Pie (fish pie) which was hot and tasty, and we did n`t have to wait very long for our order to arrive. I had a pint of Youngs bitter, which was very good.

This is a busy Youngs pub at Woolwich Arsenal. It has a nice location overlooking a grassy area. Many people were taking advantage of the afternoon sunshine with alfresco drinking and dining. The interior was very spacious and nicely furnished too. TVs were showing live French Open tennis. But unfortunately the positives end there. I arrived at the bar to find an orderly queue. I also find this practice quite amusing and wanted to go straight to the bar. But I also hate queue jumpers! So I joined the back as any polite British person would. However after a few minutes, one member of staff asked people to come to the bar if they wanted serving. Cue chaos, with the solitary barman left having no clue who was next to be served. The woman in front of me ordered a banquet and bottles of wine that all had to be placed in buckets after they had been filled with ice and topped up with cold water. This was a very tedious process for a drinker waiting to be served. I persevered and when it was my turn, the barman turned to somebody who had been behind me in the queue. Luckily that person said I was next - always nice to see others with manners. So I ordered from a selection of 7 ales. Hop Stuff Fusilier was my choice. The barman tried to pour it. But alas it had run out. Ok, I'll have a Hogsback TEA instead. But wait, that's gone too. Two down 5 to go. Luckily my third choice - Young's Waggle Dance was actually on. The other 4 on were Youngs Bitter & Special, Sharps Doom Bar & Adnams Lighthouse. But whether they were actually available is another matter. The process of trying each ale to no avail cost the barman even more time. If the pumpclip had have been turned round, he would not need to have bothered. Quite a queue had built up at the bar, with more meal orders ready to be placed. Other staff seemed to walk backwards and forwards trying to sort out problems with food ordered. An altogether frustrating experience in a very poorly managed establishment. My advice would be to avoid, until they have got their act sorted.

Went in here for a meal last night and was very disappointed as I have eaten in here many times before. Service was slow and the menu was limited in choice. Staff were pleasant enough but a bit on the scruffy side. It took them ages to clear the table On the bright side the food and beer were good. They may have to improve as there are other places to eat and drink in the area.

Busy Sunday afternoon, with Ireland v Italy rugby world cup going on. Lots of people with Ireland scarves, including a Cockney/Irish family celebrating a family birthday, which made for a good atmosphere. The building is lovely both inside and out. Youngs pub so, I had a pint of Special, which was excellent. To eat: a WIld Boar burger with pulled pork, salad and hand cut chips. Not bad for £12, a Beef Roast was £16, a pint £3.64, so London prices, but not jaw dropping. Food was good, service excellent, everyone enjoyed themselves, toilets clean and modern, will visit again, which is handy as my daughter has just moved in nearby !!

seems a bit hit and miss here, was in Friday night for fish & chips after a decent meal the week before and unfortunately this time it was rubbish, the place was very busy and the beer and atmosphere where good, but at the prices they charge you expect better, seems like they take there customers for granted as the food really was appalling, and at £11 for fish & chips it's not cheep
