disappointed that the earliest I could book was 5.30. The pub was empty when we arrived and we had wanted to go there for a roast but it had run out. there had been no message to say that the roast had run out or in fact it wouldn't be available. Great place, when it first reopened it opened with a bang, just felt that it has slightly dipped from where it was.

Today Sunday 3rd march 12 of us including 2 babies came from all around Kent and Medway for dinner. Table was booked for 2, and it was a bit busier than last week. The staff were all different and what a difference! By 2.45 we still had drinks missing and had to find someone to tell them as nobody came to check on us. By 3.45 nearly 2 hours in, (I know as the whole Chelsea match had played) we still had not even a starter! I again had to find a waitress to ask if any food was coming and I got the response 'I don't know what did you order?' I explained that it had been nearly 2 hours so she went off, and another 10 minutes later another staff member came over and came up with some excuse that the tills must have gone down when they put our order in. This seemed strange as everyone else's order before and after had gone through fine so would just appreciate the truth if someone forgot to put it through. They then said they had no more roasts which is what we all came for, and 'sorry about that' that was it! By this point we had crying children and were all so hot and nauseous from the fire because we sat the other side this time and it has no glass, so we were all inhaling the smoke. The only thing we were told was 'well you don't have to pay for your drinks you've had!' Which was a jug of tap water and a couple of beers and cokes. The table next to us then said they had the same wait for their food and were really unhappy. I'm sorry to have to write this as I loved this place and now I feel I don't want to come back and I feel embarrassed that I got all my family down here and now they have 40 minute drives home and have to get McDonald's drive thru as an emergency meal! I've never had to leave a bad review on anywhere and I hate the thought of doing it, but I'm devastated by the treatment and lack of care today! Even if there was a mistake with the till or forgetting to put an order in, it would have been noticed sooner if any staff had bothered to check on us in 2 hours! You have such a lovely setup there and I was so keen to make it our regular treat, it's such a shame ( may I also add to the young girl waitress that had a slip on the floor earlier..that was in the toilet texting please don’t give your Evil looks across to us as we was walking out of this completely wasted afternoon you was to busy on your phone ..think maybe better staffing and observing customers needs could of worked out quite well you can’t hide the amount of people on our table someone should of picked up on this way before absolute shambles book with caution Guys I had to give stars on this otherwise wouldn’t get any

A fantastic meal for 4 adults and 1 year old. The member of staff was very accommodating, the food was great and the price for the lunch time menu (3 courses) was excellent. Log fire was very warming, the background music very relaxing and I would definitely visit the Hooden again, maybe for their fajita or steak deals! Thank you

First time visiting the Smokehouse. Very impressed with service (Jess in particular was amazing), food and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to advertise when booking online that it was a set menu only, as after sitting down felt obliged to stay and purchase the set menu (and spend more than we had intended). Almost felt a tad rude at being rail-roaded to take the set menu and Prosecco, without knowing that was the only option; it was kind of just another meal out for us, rather than heading out with a purpose for a set menu. Food was very nice though! Will be returning to try out the normal menu soon.

Wanted somewhere we could walk to that wasn't a chain . Welcoming atmosphere especially as the night was blustery and wet so to see a roaring fire was lovely.. Food very nice. I had pulled pork and my husband had rump steak. Unfortunately the steak was chewy but it was replaced without quibble and taken off the bill. We offered to pay for the 2nd steak as it was so nice but were told no, so all in all got a really good deal on the night!.

Everything was delicious, the Mac&Cheese balls could have been more cheesy but I still enjoyed them! Can’t wait to come back
