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.

    Came for dinner. I understand they have recently only started offering this and as such there were few slight teething problems (like the fact that they didn't quite know which beers they had available)... which i assume will improve simply with time... but that aside, the food was very tasty, not over pretentious, the price represented good value for money and the service was excellent.

    Overall a very enjoyable experience - if you want a tasty, simple, clean not over complicated dinner in a central location in rochester - i would strongly recommend Quills. I certainly intend to visit again in the future.

    Had a great brunch here!! I did book a table but we turned up late. However, they were very accommodating and managed to seat us even though it was very busy on a Sunday morning. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was delish! Would definitely recommend for a brunch or lunch.

    Great breakfasts and milkshakes. Staff were very friendly and helpful and even provided a food item for our young granddaughter that wasn't on the menu.

    Lovely food and great customer service. Surprised it wasn't busier for a Saturday night! Definitely recommend a meal here, despite lack of many diners there was a good atmosphere and the building is very quaint! Look forward to a second visit!

    This was our first time at The Quills and we loved it. The food was imaginative and tasty and service was excellent. It's great to see a new evening dining offer on Rochester High Street and one that sets out to be a little bit different.
