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.

    The staff were friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about their menu. The food was delicious- my son said his pasta dish was the best he'd ever had!!! If we are ever in Rochester again we will definitely go back.

    I really loved this. I will be back. I love the quirky decor. I love that the restaurant is round the corner. Makes it personal. I love my full English fry up and the additional sausage and 2x hash browns were well received.

    Lovely cafe/restaurant with quick and attentive service. The food and drink was good and reasonably priced. We sat in a lovely window seat looking out to the historic high street watching the people go by.

    Lovely relaxed venue in the lovely City of Rochester. Sunday Brunch is always busy and the food is very nice. Plenty to choose from, large filling English breakfasts to light Smoke Salmon and Cream Cheese bagels. Don't expect to rush through the meal as it can take time for the dish to arrive in busy periods, but that's fine, just enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant and Rochester.

    Went here on a Friday evening for the £26 unlimited Prosecco deal and had a fantastic meal. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic the staff were very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food. There was a great buzz and love the fairy lights and big windows at the front. I would say the lighting was perhaps a little bit bright and didn't set a create atmosphere when you first walk in but the quality of the food and service more than compensated.I would definitely recommend the Krispy Kreme burger, the Mac and cheese burger and the Banoffee Freakshake and Ill definitely be back to try to next thing on the menu!

    Excellent Afternoon Tea! I took my friend here for a birthday treat and we were both extremely happy with the service, quantity of food and price. The staff were very friendly and attentive, frequently checking if we needed more tea. The food was excellent in both quality and taste. Everything was cooked fresh to order. We were both very happy with the afternoon tea and would recommend it. Thank you Quills for a very enjoyable experience.
