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.

    Great breakfast menu, nice coffee. We met up with a group of girlfriends with differing dietary requirements, lots of options offered on their menus gluten free /vegetarian ect.

    We have been a couple of time this year and only criticism is it’s been rather cold in there and we had to put our coats on after a while, the loos are freezing. They do have heaters but as it a old building they are very inefficient.

    However just wrap up and enjoy the food like we all did. ??

    We were welcomed on arrival and shown to our table. The staff were very helpful and pleasant however we were very disappointed that the lunchtime menu items that we had enjoyed last year were no longer available. We were informed the menu had changed at the end of last year and items like jacket potatoes were no longer available and the menu was more biased to main meals.
    We had chosen this restaurant as it had great lunchtime snacks which suited us.

    I have only visited once for lunch which was a very nice flatbread halloumi wrap. The menu looked pretty good and I will definitely be going again

    Really impressed with The Quills. I have many allergies and they were able to accommodate them and produce a wonderful meal! Probably the best I’ve had for quite awhile. Friendly staff. My 3 friends also said they meals were excellent! If I had to leave a negative it was that they did not have any vegan desserts.
