We have been eating at the Chapter Arms on quite a regular basis over the last two years and have never been disappointed with the food or the level of service. The menu whilst varied has some very 'special' favourites of mine and is quite varied and interesting. The food is always prepared and cooked to the very highest quality... More

About 16 of us called, a few more than estimated. Welcoming. They coped well with the many varied requests. A pub that has held the world championship for spoofing, an usual form of guessing the number of coins held in the palms of 5 players. I now understand it is global, but is influenced by where the rugby world cup... More

Great pub with really tasty food at reasonable prices. We live in Chartham but the food in the village isn't great so we drive to this pub where we find it ticks all the boxes. They're family friendly and whenever my toddler's been making a fuss they bring out things for him to do and never make us feel we're... More

We stopped off here for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and the very reasonable prices. We were warmly welcomed by the charming landlord and the service we received during our meal was excellent. A lot of so-called 'top end' restaurants could learn a lot from this establishment. We will definitely return.

Not too easy to find off the motorway as signage is on other side of road. Nice and welcoming with fires alight and friendly service. Plenty of choice and our lunch not too.expensive. Worth another visit.

The pub and dining rooms are both interesting and attractive inside ( evening visit). The dinners we ate were excellent, sufficient and reasonably priced. There was an interesting and varied menu.

Nice, interesting menu. Excellent food, well cooked. Pretty dining room. Very good value (ie cheap for such quality) Service prompt and friendly without being over-familiar. Went on a Saturday evening - can't understand why there weren't more people there. Will certainly go again

Really lovely Sunday lunch. All of the courses were delicious and excellent value for money. Wine was amazing. Service was top. First class "proper" pub Sunday lunch and will definitely go back again. Ps. Roast beef and Yorkshires highly recommended.

This is not so far away for me but rather 'out of the way', although in a nice countryside location. Having a 'spare' Saturday lunchtime, for a change and on the spur of the moment, I decided to pop in. The first pleasant surprise was to discover Greene King IPA on tap, one of my favourite beers. The second surprise... More
