Great for a quick lunch-time meal. I had fish n chips and the fish wasn't cooked through, but to be fair they quickly replaced it. I've since had other meals, and been pleased. It gets very busy, and you can have quite a wait at the bar but it's usually a really nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly and... More

Bright and cheerful, plenty of staff, big selection of beers and ales, plus vast array of spirits and wines. The food is great value and of a good standard.

Had to pop into Maidstone on Saturday, wanted somewhere for lunch that we knew was safe for someone gluten free. Decided on the society rooms and we weren't disappointed. Plenty on the menu to choose from and at a reasonable price, standard is much the same in Wetherspoons, it was very good. We had an assistance dog with us, she... More

A favourite of ours when in town doing some shopping. A short stop for some lunch and a pint in between shopping. Tuesday is a good one if your free, great steak day, excellent with a pint of bitter. Right at the end of the high street
