Gravesend is an iconic town alongside the Thames with easy connections to London, Ashford International and Europe. The Woodlands Beefeater is close to some of the best spots in town and lots of fun things to do nearby.
For a start, our namesake, Woodlands Park, is right next door. A big open space full of play areas and spaces for kids! There’s no better place to tire the kids out before lunch. The same goes for the banks of the Thames nearby, there are some brilliant views of the river from Gravesend.
Elsewhere in town, make sure to visit the Chantry Heritage Centre, one of the oldest buildings in the borough and a fascinating site for learning about the history of Gravesham. If you’re on a trip full of activities, stop by the Gravesend Cyclopark for Kent’s most modern multi-sport activity venue. Finally, Gravesend is famous for being the resting place of Pocahontas, and the statue dedicated to her near the Thames is well worth a visit.
Our steaks are always popular! Our 8oz fillet steaks are one of our tastiest cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
Our kitchen manager recommends having our steaks served rare to medium for the most flavour. But if that’s not your thing don’t worry, we’ll always serve your steak exactly how you want it.
You can’t beat our Sunday lunches here at the Woodlands Beefeater. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
