Roger Button left this review about The Wharf

Not the most accessible of Dartford's pubs, you either need to drive or be in the mood for a long walk. Although the pub is signposted it is easy to get lost around here or even accidently end up on the motorway. Don't let the Crossways Business Park location or proximity of the M25 and QE2 Bridge put you off. This is a fairly tranquil spot and there are enjoyable nature walks around the landscaped surroundings. Despite the out of the way location, the Wharf is very popular and it is very easy to spend an entire balmy evening here watching the sun go down over the lake. The pub is built in the style of a Thameside trading house and has a spacious interior with many separate areas to suit a variety of tastes. The main bar area overlooks the lake and there is now a recently added split level conservatory. Outside, there is a children's play area and several benches along the wooden verandah that laps the waters edge where ducks, swans and coots battle it out for territory among the bullrushes. The beers are from the Shepherd Neame range and there is also a carvery restaurant on the lower floor. The only major downside is the bland music that is also piped to the outside. One of the few Dartford pubs that has ever made it into the Good Pub Guide and well worth the effort to visit.
