Friendly staff and nice to have table service although it was a bit slow at times and we could have drunk twice as much; an app to order drinks would have been better. But the staff did their best on such a busy eve. Will definitely come again.

Food was so fresh and really delicious. We were both really impressed with the starters. The battered prawns were really crisp and fresh and the Halloumi wasn't rubbery or squeaky on the teeth.
Chilli burger had a lovely home cooked taste. Didn't expect so much from pub grub, very pleasantly surprised.
Can't wait to try the Sunday roasts! (Just hope they are on China plates)

I come to the seven stars quite a lot for sunday dinner. Never had bad service or a bad meal. Yesterday Sunday 3rd may. The food was lovely apart from very waterly gravy. I didnt mention it, as i had already complained about the wait. but service was poor. Took an hour to be given a menu, i had to ask. We were there 2 hrs before we go a meal. People who came after us. Had the meals we all still waiting. I had to ask , to put an order in and i had to complain about the wait. I am not the type to complain, but i was not happy yesterday. I will be returning as i honestly think, this is a one off and i do enjoy here and the staff are normally, very quick and helpful.

This pub has made a real effort to make dining outdoors as comfortable as possible including heating for those chilly nights. The food is great but sadly served on disposable plates at present. I dont think children should be in pubs at all let alone in the evening. I go to pubs to be social with other adults not kids. If children must be dragged along by their inconsiderate parents at least have the decency to keep them in the children's area. They're very limited in dark beers and it could be a little cheaper.

Food was lovely and we couldn't have asked for a better seat, right next to the river. Only problem was being out the way we were overlooked on being served. However once served our drinks and food came quickly

Unbelievable poor service waited ages for food service which was cold and waited for ever to be served. Allocated a 2.5 hour slot but was there for nearly 5 due to the appalling service and very much doubt we will be going back

Miserable Sunday Roast with old-tasting potatoes, overcooked meat and (tasted like) frozen Yorkshire puddings.

The staff at the Seven Stars never cease to amaze, their customer service skills are second to none. Warm and friendly, constantly smiling, nothing is ever too much trouble for them. I had a fantastic afternoon in the garden, drinking, chatting and laughing. Top, top day, thank you.

Amazing food as always but service was extremely slow. We ended up being there for 2 hours and ended up cancelling our dessert as just took so long. At least a 20minute wait just for ice cream. Constantly having to ask for cutlery, order more drinks. Not the usual service we’re used to.

Was charged for an extra pint of guiness we didn't have - phoned pub and was told to call again on Thursday for a refund (the next day they are open).

Social distancing of staff taking order, delivering food across our shoulders - pretty much non existent so hope we don't regret the visit!!!!

Food was excellent so such a shame on other two points.

The pubs alright, nice Staff members, landlady always looks miserable!
£5 a pint at the bottom of Sidcup Hill is steep (pardon the pun).
Food was ok Sausage Roll could do with a better look! Tasted good to my 10year old.
Nice to sit by the small river for a cold post lockdown pint.
