With the nearby Earl Haig no longer opening until 11:30, we moved onto the Yacht, only to find that still closed at 11:10 too. But, it turned out that the landlord had forgot to unlock the door! This is a Greene King pub, with 3 of their ales - IPA, Abbot & London Glory, along with St Austell Tribute. The London Glory was ok. But, this wasn't the best selection. The landlord was friendly and talkative though. So much so that we missed our bus back into the town! The interior is bright and airy and is quite comfortable.

I feel I have to reassess my previous review and grade, going by the last few visits in recent months. I said that the beer is well kept and pulled, which still remains the case. No problems there. The food is reasonably priced and of so-so quality - chips often cold but other than that it's ok for the money.

I also said that the staff were friendly and helpful. This is true - in part. Sadly, a handful of the staff are really letting this place down. The kitchen staff in particular and some of the younger bar staff (and the manager at times) act in such an unprofessional manner it beggars belief. Running in and out of the kitchen, chasing each other, swearing, all around the main dining area where people are trying to enjoy their lunches or dinner.

Come on guys, pull yourselves together. I'm amazed the manager or landlady haven't pulled the other staff up on this as it really adversely affects the quality of experience here. Mind you, the landlady herself isn't the most cheerful of characters and both her and the bar manager are often witnessed in disagreements with customers. Ho hum.

not my sort of pub too busy and noisy but the drinks are cheap and the food extremely cheap but not of the highest quality although it was all served quickly and was perfectly edible my children enjoyed it all. i expect we will visit again but not in a rush. just like to say i thought the staff were all ok and attentive.

We love the Yacht, we've been drinking and eating there for years, my kids love it, great new flaming grill menu, our med rare steaks always cooked perfect and all the food is cooked fresh, not like some pubs when they ding every thing, if there is a wait we always order starters. love the real ale, london pride my favourite so keep it on please. We have always found the management and the staff to be great to us, we speak as we find and we find this the best pub in bexleyheath. go the yacht!

We visited this pub on a Saturday afternoon and found it was very busy and difficult to get a drink. The food was cheap and tasteless, and there was a strong smell of cannabis in the garden. The pub itself is very dirty, and the landlady is very rude! I will not be returning. I used to be a regular in this pub about 10 years ago, such a shame it has gone downhill.
