The Flying Boat is a Wetherspoons pub that is situated on the main road through Dartford.
Once inside there is a large square shaped room with the bar on the right side,it is carpeted and has mainly normal tables and chairs plus a few tall ones.
There was a TV on mute on the left side.
There was a decent choice of guest beers on,i had a drink of Nelson Pieces of Eight,which went down well,the other beers noted were Nelson Spanker and beers called Mildly Rockin and Evans Evans,plus the Spoons regulars.
The pub was very busy on my Saturday dinner visit.
I thought this was a decent enough Wetherspoons to have a drink in.

Large open plan pub that is just like a square box. Very little in the way of guest ales and very little in the way of atmosphere.

Not as good a selection of guests as last time but there were a couple of Wantsum beers on. I tried the Turbulent Priest which could have been better. Score reduced to 7.

This is by far the larger and on a Thursday morning busier of the two Dartford Spoons. It's one of their newer ones in the London area (2009) and is a fairly typical barn of a place, but at least it has windows which stops it being a cave.

I didn't count the pumps on the bar, but there were five Locale beers and no "uninvited" guests.
The Locale beers were two from WJ King, two from Wantsum and Whitstable Bay Oyster Stout. I went for the Wantsum Black Pig (£2.15) which was a porter in very good condition, the best Spoons pint of the day.

My only criticism is why in a building this size does the Gents need to be situated at the top of four flights of stairs?
