We visit The Botany Bay regularly as we have lived locally for many years , and I must say I am very surprised at the last few poor reviews I have read . Are they genuine ? We have visited on several occasions in recent weeks with family and friends , the food has been to a high standard and very much enjoyed , the staff have been excellent , friendly and attentive . One review mentions red bowls ? We have never been served food in a red bowl or seen red bowls in the restaurant , plates for most meals are white , bowls for mussels are black ! Perhaps this reviewer was in a different restaurant ? We will certainly be returning , especially as the new autumn menu looks particularly good .

A disappointing steak with processed chips and a bit of fish ditto. Not a it more to say except the barmaid wanted to argue about a flat pint of beer.

Met up with two friends and had a meal, food was warm service was bad and lack of staff once again, when will shepherd neame learn if you want to keep your customers get your act together and look after them this place has gone from bad to worse, perhaps now that the management are leaving there might be a change in the wind, ( is that Mary Poppins i see ) this place could do with her..
