I've been here several times and every time wonder why I go back again, probably because it's other people who arrange it. This us just an average restaurant, sometimes you choose a meal and it's great, sometimes you don't. I guess at best I would describe it as slightly better than chain pub grub....the big portion stuff that focusses more... More

Went to Zippers without a reservation, and were seated straight away. The restaurant got busier while we were in there. Service was mostly good, but there is room for improvement. The starters arrived while we were still eating our garlic bread, but other than that there was a long gap between courses, which we didn't mind. The food was good... More

After a shopping visit to Chatham once again we decided to stay and eat, having previously visited this restaurant previously we thought it would be a good option but unfortunately the tables had a sticky surface (not cleaned properly) The service started off well but it slowly turned into disorganisation, the children's food was piping hot so they had to...

On entering Zippers we were greeted by a member of staff and asked how many. We said 3 and she said there's a... More

Didn't do it for us. The ambience is minimal lacking intimacy and has the bog standard layout of many national chains. It seems to want to be 'up market' but misses the mark. My meal consisted of an acceptable piece of chicken and half a tomato plus a side order of about 12 or so chips (free with the meal).... More
