Usual pub fare. Good friendly service. Nice location with view of the river. Some odd combinations on the menu, but good sized portions. The food was tasty and served hot.

This is a nice pub on the river Medway by Upnor sailing club. The beer choice is good as is the pub food. The decor is a bit random but this adds to the charm. There is plenty of outside seating for the summer too.

Very busy lunchtime but the managed to fit us it. Staff pleasant and helpful. The wainwright was a nice pint. We four had different roasts which apart from one which turned up without roast potatoes, quickly rectified with an apology, were perfectly fine. I'd have preferred my beef rare but it was medium well to well. Been a while since... More

Visited (with very short notice to the venue) with 4 adults, 8 children and everyone left happy! Warm, welcoming staff, great choice on the menus and food was very good. I would say the venue isn't necessarily a pub geared for children but we were all made to feel very welcome and the atmosphere was warm. Would definitely go back... More

Nice pub located next to the river Medway at Lower Upnor. The pub offers a good choice of drinks in a friendly welcoming atmosphere. I have visited many times and have never been disappointed .
