This beautiful and historic pub is situated right on the doorstep of the North Downs Way, towards the end of the Dover via Canterbury section, a perfect stop for weary travellers. We were welcomed by the lovely owners, exhausted after a long walk, and greeted with a cold drink and the most delicious, fresh and perfectly cooked food you could... More

We stopped by after a long hike across the north downs, and found this charming place full of lovely atmosphere. The owner welcomed everyone like an old friend as we arrived. Garden was stunning, service was great and the steak was cooked to perfection.

We were down collecting our daughter from Kent Uni and by chance stumbled upon this charming village pub from a recommendation from a fellow parent. The garden is outstanding and we sat facing the beautiful orchards just below. The food was presented perfectly and cooked to our preferences. I had the lamb rump and the wife had the duck breast....

We booked in the morning and asked for a table in the garden which was confirmed. When we arrived the owner (we assume) told us that he reserved a table insight. We asked for a table outside and were told that this had not been reserved but we should chose a table close to the pub so the staff did... More

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to our establishment. We always reserve an inside table for guests wishing to eat outside just in case the weather changes. And as there were numerous tables available outside we left the choice of table up to yourselves. We do offer a menu of traditional pub fare at lunchtimes but... More

We were recommended to visit The Chapter Arms for a historical family mission. Not knowing exactly what we were in for we decided to head to Chartham Hatch and see the building & land onced built/owned by my 5x Great grandfather. We were pleasantly surprised to be given a warm welcome and a great convo with David, the publican now.... More

We have eaten at the Chapter Arms three times and have always enjoyed ourselves. We go for the Pilgrim's Menu. At the time of writing, it is £12.95 (May 2014) for an imaginative and tasty three-course meal with three different choices for each course. The pub is set in beautiful surroundings, the landlord is friendly and the staff are efficient.

With a large group to feed (27 I think) I visited many weeks ago to have a look and decided to make this our lunch stop in the middle of a walk from Canterbury. The landlord was very helpful in making the booking arrangements and had set aside plenty of tables and chairs for us, with personalised welcomes on little... More

This used to be a favourite haunt many years ago.... Sadly since changing hands a while ago it's gone crashing downhill. Lunch was poor value, like warm at best followed by stone cold pudding that we didn't even have the energy to complain about. The place was empty, devoid of other customers and this no atmosphere at all. Such a... More
