Rex Rattus left this review about The Depot

This is a brand new Young's pub, sitting underneath a brand new residential development. As a new pub it's obviously bright and shiny in every way. There are exposed brick walls, which because it's a new pub must have been intended to be on show, unlike most pubs where this isn't the case. A couple of glazed bookcase like bits of furniture break up the large, otherwise completely open space to some extent. The wall at the back on the right has a mural featuring WWII barage balloons, which I gather were stored at the RAF establishment that used to be here. There's also that bane of modern buildings the exposed ducting on the ceiling, but I did quite like the enormous propellor blade themed lightshades. As you might expect decor included model aircraft. There is a fair bit of outside seating in an enclosed area along the pedestrian walkway to the side of the pub, and inside the pub there's the full range of furnishings - so we were able to find a traditional looking table with attendent chairs.

But there were only a couple of ales on - Young's Original (Ordinary that was) (£4.20 a pint), and St Austell Proper Job. They do food as well of course, and as it was before noon we went for the full English at £10 a go. We reckoned that it was almost as good as the 'spoons traditional breakfast at about a third of the price. This is anything but a destination pub, but as it's the only pub in Kidbrooke I'm glad they went to the trouble of including a pub in the new build so that the hitherto unpubbed residents of Kidbrooke have somewhere half decent to get a drink.
