A lovely lunch with friendly service and open on Boxing day too. I'd recommend you booked to sit in the front room which is larger and brighter with bigger windows.

Fabulous lunch. Food choices very good and portion sizes were surprisingly bigger than we thought. Staff were attentive and friendly. Wonderful. Will definitely go back.

Absolutely terrible quality of food, sent our starters back as inedible. Mains came and enough was enough, I’ve had better school dinners and we left. Worst meal I’ve ever had in a very weird setting

From the three dishes that we ordered just one was really worth it of the high cost per plate. Really disappointing :-(

The food was delicious. The service was amazing, couldn't fault it. The restaurant phoned to ask if they could push the table back by half hour, and due to that, offered a bottle of wine for free. Because neither me or my partner drink wine, they allowed us to have a cocktail each instead. Food was quick to arrive and delicious. They even put a candle and decoration on my other halves cheesecake for his birthday. I will definitely be going back for food again

Lovely food at reasonable prices and well presented, good friendly service .However it was so cold in there had to sit with my coat on , I did ask the waitress to put some heating on but don’t think she did. Also some low back ground music is needed .

Food was adequate at best with filo pastry that was rock solid. Tasted suspiciously like it had been microwaved

We couldnt fault the place, but that might be because we were the only ones in there. Was nice having the place to ourselves though and the staff were very attentive and polite. The food was exceptional and really good value. We will definitely return for a lunch date soon.

Excellent. Service was exemplary, waitress was very courteous. Food was awesome. Only gripe is that being seated near to the open window we occasionally got the stinky stench of the smokers outside, below the window. But apart from that I would thoroughly recommend it,

Lovely building with comfy seats in the restaurant area. Generous portions for the main roasts, although the lamb appeared to have been over re-heated, making it tough to eat, which was a huge shame. Very good value for money and if we are ever in Rochester again, we will pop in.

Excellent service and food. We arrived and it was a very hot day. We we were greeted with lots of over water to quench our thirst. Perfect service, perfect food, good quality and quantity. Really reasonable for the price. Will definitely return.
