Great Sunday roast

Sitting in the terraced garden, overlooking the orchards at The Chapter Arms and eating thick slabs of meat, served with a variety of well cooked vegetables, is a perfect Kentish Sunday lunch experience.

An oasis of tranquility. A beautiful setting, with lovely dining areas both inside and out. Been twice with colleagues and the food and service have been first class. Thanks

Beautiful pub in a gorgeous village with excellent food too. The staff are friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble - we called in at lunchtime not wanting a meal but bar snacks and they were kind enough to ask the chef to make sandwiches for us even though they are not on the menu. The garden is... More

To be honest we found this place by chance, wow what a find. Arriving just before dinning orders closed we weren't rushed at all by the very helpful staff.

Quite simply the best steak I have tasted in England, ever. Cooked blue to perfection. Succulent, juicy, and ever so moreish. The pub itself is famous for its spoofing, but all in all the decoration and layout is extremely well done. I couldn't ask for anything more. They also keep a very good cask of ale, which makes the whole... More
