Mid afternoon visit to Gravesend's Weatherspoon’s, this was pub number 3, beer number 3 and cheap lunch also.

Table found, food selected then to the bar to survey the hand pumps for refreshments. A good selection of ales with 3 seasonal offerings available.
The pair of us both selected a pint of Kelham Island’s Pale Rider @ 5.2% which was a great compliment to my steak and ale pie.

Busy inside this large pub that used to be a bed shop before ‘spoon’s got hold of it. Out of the 3 pubs visited including this one, it’s no surprise that this place is by far the busiest with the clientele being a mix of drinkers and OAP types having their lunch.

The upstairs toilets meant I got to see the stunning stain glass panels, which are worth a look.

A decent enough ‘spoons but the clientele did seem a bit rough and that’s from a mid afternoon visit on a weekday

Interesting place; indeed unexpected. Not bad for a Wetherspoons, in comparison to many (cf. The Muggleton Inn, and Golden Lion in Maidstone and Rochester, respectively). Beer well kept and served on my visit. Agreeable staff served me up a fairly priced Adnams (tough to come by 'spoons beyond Suffolk). Usual industrial drinkers herein, standard for vertical serving areas per Wetherspoons' get 'em in and fill 'em up policy for the hardened demographic, but quiet and inoffensive nonetheless. Certainly didn't overhear any racist invective and profanity, which is a pleasant change for this town. Plenty food being served. Couple of professional types eating an early lunch. Seemed happy enough, although their Topman suits were taking the strain. One of Gravesend's better joints, possibly overlooked by the seasoned drinker owing to its ownership, but the best pint of Adnams in town - bar that served in The Rum Puncheon.

First visit to the Robert Pocock via the Tilbury to Gravesend ferry and I sat outside opposite the Library enjoying the Summer weather watching the people of Gravesend go about their business.

On Monday a pint is reduced 20p so I paid 230p for a decent pint brewed at Southwold by Adnams.

Will go back again sometime.

Sadly, it remains the pit of the most mortifying despair and a lasting monument to the expiration of humanity's hopes for any redemption.

Located opposite the library (presumably for the purposes of irony) neither the clientele nor the bar staff have any comprehension or interest in the alphabet. There are spirits behind the bar but those of the patrons are, of course long gone.

The non-disabled toilets are upstairs, and the case is extremely steep. This is neither family nor alcholic friendly.

The crowd of aged alchys sit or slump near the bar, their red and obscenely bulbous noses a beacon of welcome: like Amsterdam without the carnal appeal. Many are incomprehensible morons, their remaining grey cells raging against the dying of the light through yet further consumption of the lager soma.

Many a character in here: and yes, by character I mean degenerate, xenophobic slaphead.
