This place is a kip. Sadly it has the appearance of neglect and barely seems to function. I believe it used to be a bit of a hub in Blackheath and dates back to the early 1800's which makes it even sadder that they can't make a go of it. Went there on Saturday to try and find some air... More

There were a number of places to choose from to eat in Blackheath. We chose this Hotel because pub food is usually good and inexpensive. This meal was inedible! Couldn't chew through the roast beef. Just aweful. Would not go to this Hotel again. Staff were not friendly either.

As a local I have watched this pub have many ups and downs and at this current time it is a serious down. If you like to wait for everything this is the pub to be in. The young bar staff are lacking what it takes to work behind a bar, this is either a problem with management not training... More

What's happened to the Gardeners? We are new to the area and have eaten here many times over our six months as Blackheath residents. Went for dinner tonight with visiting family at 7.30pm, not a staff member in sight. Waiting at the bar for drinks, finally got to ask the young lady if they had any menus as they are... More

This pub has a great public bar where very one sits at the bar. In winter the open fire adds to the atmosphere.

Fairly clean inside but outside the window pidgeon crap all over the roof and window. Pidgeons nesting on the sill kept me awake all night. The shower head kept falling down and wouldn't stay up no matter how hard I tightened the scew. The telly was hopeless. The power socket was loose causing screen to be pixelated all the time....

Good pub feed. This is a regular stop for us on our visit to family. Always found the food better than average. While ordering some drinks, I got talking with my bar tender and he gave me a taster of a local craft lager. It tasted very good and I would've ordered one but I was on my limit. He... More
