Long Reach, Whitstable

Was extremely pleasantly surprised by this Beefeater.

The staff were really friendly and the service was the best we have had in a while. The menu was standard fare but it was surprisingly good for a chain restaurant. It came on time and was hot and cooked properly.

Really impressed with the three course offer as we assumed we would get reduced size courses but it was good.

Picky eaters, we were actually really satisfied and have been back several times mainly due to the staff.

The Horse and Groom, Sidcup

Half empty restaurant and yet told that we would have a 35 minute wait. Waited the time and none of the empty tables filled up so not sure whether they were purposefully trying to set the mood.

Food was lack lustre and even though you don't expect gastronomic from a Harvester it was poor even by Harvester standards.

The only saving grace was the waitress we had who was friendly and outgoing and made the meal bareable. Unlike the guy on front of house who was rude and surly and did little to make you want to stay.

The Royal Tavern, Eltham

Really disappointed as this is just down the road and we eat out regularly.

The menu is reasonably lacking for what is advertised as a gourmet pub. What you get is decidedly lacking any hint of gourmet being dry and over cooked or dripping in fat. You pay gourmet prices for standard pub grub they have tried to dress up.

The staff are friendly enough when you actually get served which can take a while unless you make your presence known.

Very very disappointed and won't be spending my money supporting this local business after an exceedingly disappointing dinner.
