Wagon At Hale, Chatham

With its semi rural location, generous garden out back, kids mini zoo, playground and a quite tasteful interior, you would think that this place has much to offer. The carvery style food is actually very tasty and service is swift, if slightly inept.
What lets this place down is its attraction to the 'Nouveau Pikey' brigade; fleets of Mitsubishi Warrior trucks, arms and backs covered in children's names and dates of birth (just in case they forget, I suppose), Stella and fags, plus a compulsive trait of making sure everyone else is aware of their existence by swearing, shouting at the kids, allowing them to act like the snot filled Giro fodder they are, all iced with the usual argument about everything and nothing.
Don't bother - a 2 mile drive up Capstone Road takes you to the Harrow. Much better.

Old Post Office, Chatham

Now a JD Wetherspoon pub, which should mean a decent choice of beer and reasonably edible food. Nice and tidy, fairly busy for a weekday evening.
Hopefully, with decent door staff, they can start to weed out the morons of old as this part of town could do with a decent establishment.

The Chequers, Barley

Slightly more restaurant rather than pub but very pleasant indeed. I turned up with wife and 6 year old without a reservation. We were treated extremely well by the very polite staff who re-jigged and found a table for us.
Beer was 3 hand pumps - Adnams Ghost Ship, GK IPA and Abbots. No great shakes there.
Food was trying to be gastro with very fancy presentation and service but was fairly normal - nothing great but nothing poor.
Overall, a well organised and friendly place for a beer and food. I'd happily go back when next in the area.
