The Queens Head, Chislehurst

I went to the Queens Head on Sunday for what I thought would be a pleasant lunch - I was wrong!

After waiting at the bar to get served (about 15mins) my food and drink order was taken. I asked what the soup of the day was and was informed this was vegetable.

We were informed that there was a wait of 30-45mins on food order as they had a rush on (the pub was half empty), but we were not in a rush so thought "what the hell".

After 45 mins the food ordered, mine a chicken soup (after I had been informed it was vegetable, lucky I am not veggie). It resembled a cuppa soup and was luke warm. Absolutely starving, I ate it.

After an additional 45mins our main course arrived. I had fish and chips which was inedible. The chips were again luke warm and the fish was either frozen battered fish or had been re-heated, it was vile!!

My friend had the roast dinner and said it was "OK" nothing special.

After another 30 mins, our plates were cleared and we asked where my friends desert was. The waitress shurgged her shoulders and said she would try and find out.

After another 20 mins, it arrived. It was inedible as it was cold in the middle when it was meant to be a sticky lemon sponge (served hot)!

I would NEVER go back to this pub, not even if I was desperate. It is by FAR the worst place I have ever been to in my life. Shame on you Ember Inns!!

New Inn, Hayes

This pub is my local and I often frequent it for drinks in the evening, light bites or sometimes a meal.

The bar is very contemporary and so much better than when it was the Harvester. The staff ar friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced too. This bar showcases a lovely beer garden which is delightful to sit out in the summer. My only reservation is that the bar can become very noisy as the acoustics are not great, due to the minimilisic style of the bar and high celings.

I would recommend going here for a weekday bite to eat, drink with friends, but if you want somewhere quieter then it might not be ideal at the weekends during the evenings as it is hard to have a conversation.

Nevertheless, a really lovely bar and worth a visit!

The George, Hayes

I have been here a few times and I have found it very pleasant indeed. The food and drink is a little pricey but in my opinion the food is very good and there is a vast range on the menu. The decor is lovely and much better than it was when it was an "Ember Inns". The staff are very pleasant and friendly and I would recommend this for a small group of friends or a lovely meal if you are a couple.
