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 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.

    We really enjoyed a good quality cooked breakfast and would recommend The Quills to friends.

    Good service, fair prices in keeping with other businesses in the area. The food was very good except I ordered the waffle burger thinking that it was a potato waffle but it was a sweet waffle a bit too sweet for me but some will enjoy it. My fault I should have asked.

    This is not the first time we have dined at Quills although it is the first time since it came under new management.
    The restaurant has been opened up and is bright and airy.
    Food quality has not suffered and lunch was, as always, an unhurried, enjoyable experience.
