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.

    Had a lovely Breakfast with my son. Unfortunately the ketchup exploded all over me. I didn't make a fuss, just cleaned myself up. Dress was a mess. The staff were very helpful and even reduced the bill to allow for dry cleaning cost of dress. I was very surprised but thankful.
    Location is very good, clean, friendly and food very tasty.
    Also had 2-4-1 deal.

    Food was very good - but service could have been better as we felt rushed to eat and get out when we explained we wanted to take a leisurely brunch and the place wasn’t near full; The waitress that took my order didn’t mention my breakfast it came with bread so when it arrived by a different waitress - I asked if could change the white bread to brown as I can’t have white bread and was met with a very rude attitude; and walked away in a bad mood; shame as the food when it came back was very nice, so I left tip for the chefs rather than serving staff; they need a bit of a lesson on manners. Not sure if would go back which is shame!
