The Kings Arms, Westerham

Yes. Fawlty Towers comes to mind.
I meet up with my cousin and sister and we usually go to Food For Thought on the Green. But this time we'd though we would give this place a try out for our Sunday lunch.
Hmmm, won't be going again. Initial impressions were that of a faded old hotel. We were shown to our booked table and i noticed straighaway that the wine glasses could have done with a polish as they were dull and smeary.
When the three of us had gathered we decided to go for the Sunday roast and based on the condition of my teeth opted for the Turkey a decision that we all arrrived at.
Some minutes later someone came back to us and said would we like Cauliflower Cheese with that and we all said yes. Howver the person returned to tell us that thay would incur a £3 surcharge and so we said, don't bother. Eventually he came back and said there wan't any Turkey an so unwisely we chose Beef. Big mistake for me, as it turned out as it was so chewy and the vegetable were already on the plate and not served up on a side dish.
All in all very disappointing and the Cheesecake dessert was very disappointing but that was my fault as I misread the description of it.
Won't be going back there, Mr Fawlty.

The Botley Hill Farmhouse, Warlingham

Believe me, I don't have a vendetta against this place but I went their and met up with some mates, for a drink.
My initialy impressions of a few months ago about the decor were now reinforced. The interior has been ruined in my opinion.
The walls are stark white and the wall lights are are unforgiving white as well. As I said before all the original dark beams/woodwork has been overpainted with a matt paint/emulsion in what appears to be a very pale creamy colour and this has accentuated the wood's blemishes in a most unpleasandt way.
The positive points then. The place was very warm - over warm or oppressive and very quiet on this October night. Including us, I only could account for about 8 or nine people but I did not go around the other side of the pub.
Frankly, I am not sure who are the owners now, of this establishment. There is only an A la Carte menu with quite a lot on it and a chef in the kitchen!
Well it's a convenient place for we three to meet up that's all I can say but they no longer sell J20 drinks but and 'H' equivalent.

Yes, this pub is now up for sale. About £700,000 if anyone is interested?
