A Tuesday night visit to what is now the only 'spoons in the town.

Pretty busy but also quite noisy, a group of local lads swilling lager at the bar were particularly loud!

The hand pumps had the usual range of ales on with the Hogsback Last of the Summer Swine very drinkable @ 4.0%

Lovely interior here, quick service but unfortunately it does attract your usual Dartford crowd!

This large purpose built 'spoons is just to the east of the town centre in an area with a couple of “okay” pubs and the excellent Dartford Working Man’s Club.

10 hand pumps that during my visit had 6 ales on, 3 national brands and 3 guests. I had a couple of pints of Rockin Robin Breweries Reliant Robin @ 3.7%, a decent pint that was well kept.

Busy with most people eating late breakfast / lunch, a fair few families but all of the kids seemed well behaved.

The Flying Boat has a large open plan interior with 2 smaller eating / drinking areas to the rear and a large beer garden. Upstairs toilets that were clean.

A decent enough ‘spoons.

Went here on Friday (14/12/12) for food with my wife. I was served within seconds of reaching the bar, after ordering I was told the food would be about 15mins and it arrived dead on 15 mins later. Quality of the food was average. My scampi was fine and my wife's chicken tikka was ok although it was accompanied by hard rice and cardboard nan bread My pint of Spitfire was very reasonable but not outstanding.
It is a fascinating building (the former carriage, and later car, showroom of JC Beadle - built in 1910) but could now do with a little TLC, there are many bulbs blown and the suspended circular glass light fittings could all do with having their glass cleaned.
