A pleasantly relaxed meal.

The staff were friendly and attentive and keen to know if everything was OK. Whilst the food was not overwhelming the standard was acceptable and good value for money.

Unfortunately I booked expecting the advertised menu to be available. An apology was offered in the light of expected new Covid instructions and in general these were respected. As such I felt safe and appropriately socially distanced.

Food was lovely. Steak was better than My experience with STK. Plus, it only cost £30 for 2 courses on a Friday evening!

We had the most wonderful lunch. Service was excellent . Staff just so nice and helpful with the menu.
The food was so well presented. But the best bit was the taste. It had all been cooked to perfection. The menu itself was varied and i ended up having the vegan option . It was brilliant. My partner had different food but his was the same high standard as mine.House wine was very nice.
We have been before and i can say that everything remains as high as possible standard. Covid and babysitting part we will be back.
We can really recommend this venue. They are so accommodating . Its a lovely lovely treat to have such special care and surroundings. It really made us feel we had a special treat. We are aiming to book with friends,

The experience at Olivers was good. My partner has visited many times with her friends before we went for Sunday lunch/dinner.

We had to stand at the entrance for about 5-10 minutes waiting for someone to notice us and seat us. Although we were early to our booking.

Once seated, the service was good and we were placed by a window in a non crowded room which was ideal for us.

The Sunday roast was a reasonable size and was well priced. Lamb was lovely but slightly fatty.

Drinks were generous and had a good deal on cocktails. Would certainly return again for a casual Sunday lunch/dinner.

Outstanding Sunday lunch I can see why it gets fully booked quick already booked up for my partners birthday. Only things personally for me would of been nice to have a bit more of that lovely hollandaise sauce on my starter, jus on roast a little thicker and roast potatoes needs to be crisper and fluffier on the inside

Wonderful service from all the staff! Brilliant standard of food and drinks, only downside was the noisy table next to us! However the staff offered to move us to a quieter table and were lovely throughout the whole evening. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice night out and catch up with mates!

Second time of eating here recently. Both times, the food and service was very good. Service can be a tad slow when they’re busy but not a major problem. One of the only restaurants in the area that actually knows to cook a steak properly.

The building was grand looking from outside and spacious and airy inside.
We were shown to our table by a pleasant server who looked after us for all of our lunchtime experience.
The food was delicious, with my partner having two starters and I having a starter and main.
My partner loved the ambiance and look of the dining room as I did !
A pleasant and unhurried experience meant that we could enjoy our meal in comfort.
I would recommend this restaurant and will be returning when back in Rochester.

The food and service were great, but our evening was slightly put off by 2 girls next us talking on their phones extremely loudly, being very rude.

Not the restaurants fault but did dampen the evening.

Meal was fantastic - served quickly, but enough time between courses. Fish had a few bones in one part, hence 4 stars not five. Great service, very attentive and cocktails were 2-4-£10 which was an added bonus. Will definitely be back!

Nice food. Friendly, welcoming staff.
Beef starter was delicious.
Lamb for main was over cooked but was replaced straight away.
Second one was cooked perfectly.
A round of drinks taken off as an apology.
Would return.
