The Chequers Inn, Swanley

Early in December, I was one of a party of 6 who partook of their Christmas menu - we booked in advance the previous month and it was my first visit to The Chequers although it is just 15 minutes by train and a further 15 on foot from mine. Like Arnie and general MacArthur, I will be making a return visit.
There was a decent choice of three real ales, I happily settled on the Ringwood and the whole place was pleasant, clean and well decorated.
Words can hardly describe, however, just how marvellous the food was. The parsnip soup was a pleasant hors d'oeuvre, but what was to follow surpassed all expectations. As some of my company tucked into their venison, I enjoyed the nicest traditional Christmas dinner - turkey and all the trimmings- that I have ever tasted away from home (my sister is a great cook and I will be at hers again on 25th Dec). To round things off, my Christmas pudding was moist and really tasty and all six of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Lovely pub, top grub, pleasant clientele and friendly, prompt and professional service made it a truly enjoyable experience.

The Pembroke, Gravesend

Look, if you have a strong stomach, at the facebook page for this pub and you will find the winners of the quiz for the last four weeks; look again, Sherlock, and you will find the computer that this flab four keep cribbing their answers from. How clever, how smart, how much pleasure they must derive from winning by cheating ! Equally nauseating is the sight of vast swathes of their pale , surplus and uninteresting skin spewing out of their catalogue clothes as they clamber over the furniture to bag their ill-gotten prize. I suppose if you look like the cast of "Shaun of the Dead" if they let themselves go and behave like aspirants to get on a Jeremy Kyle show, then the Goose Fat Club regulars have truly found their niche.
Pity, because this is not a bad pub, the prices and ranges of ales are all right, it is just Team 5,6,7,8 ( representing their mental ages, intelligence quotients or chins) that leaves such a nasty stench
