Once a Tudor yeoman’s house, The Quills in Rochester is now a popular restaurant, serving crowd-pleasing British cuisine. Sit in the beamed dining room surrounded by antique oak doors that the owners rescued from Rochester Cathedral when it was refurbished.

Blending familiar ingredients with special touches, all brought together in a rustic style, The Quills menu includes the likes maple-glazed pork ribs or Mexican spicy bean and avocado for breakfast, or a burger topped with BBQ beef brisket and a side of truffled mac & cheese. Chocolate brownie layered with cherry pie filling is amongst the enticing desserts.

Brimming with history, find The Quills a 10-minute walk from Rochester Train Station.

    I'd eaten here for breakfast before which was great so decided to try lunch. Friendly and efficient service. We had smoked mackerel and horseradish jacket potato and Reuben sandwich and both were tasty. Nice drinks range - loved the rhubarb and apple juice. At no point did we feel rushed despite taking ages as we chatted. We'll definitely be back.
