A wonderful country pub In the heart of the English countryside set amongst orchards with stunning views. The hosts David and Sue and their staff give a warm welcome and ensure that you're well looked after. The interior of the pub is traditional and would be very cosy in the winter months whilst the gardens are glorious on a summer... More

We are very disappointed to hear that your service at The Chapter Arms was not satisfactory. Our staff are usually highly praised on our customer feedback forms. I can only think that it may have been a new member of staff but having said that, they should have been supervised more closely. We have had a meeting to discuss your... More

We were off to see Simply Red at the Cricket ground in Canterbury and wanted to eat before getting there so I searched on Trip Advisor and found this! When we got there I must admit we were unsure a) If it was open and b) not sure we were keen However we decided to give it a try. Once... More

We choose off the Pilgrims menu, which consisted of starter,main & desert. All course's were delicious. The tables in the restaurant are set out nicely. The staff are all very friendly and polite.They also serve real ales.

We were on a walk along the North Downs Way and booked in advance here for lunch. The setting is lovely and the pub itself attractive, clean and very friendly. Some of us had the Pilgrims set meal which was exceptionally good value and one had a main meal and we were all delighted with the quality and presentation.

A lovely spot slightly off the beaten track. We felt very welcomed having booked ahead for Sunday lunch and arrived to a table reserved with our name on it! Had our young grandson with us who enjoyed the crayons and the myriad brass instruments hanging from the ceiling while waiting for the delicious and reasonably priced roast lunch. Lovely home...

I found the Chapter Arms to be full of character and charm. It has a lovely atmosphere and I found the service to be spot on. As I enjoyed it so much I took my family there and they are already requesting to go back next time they are in Kent. Thank you for two lovely visits.

We tried to book the Chapter Arms for Mothers Day after a friend recommended it for its delicious food but when ringing they were fully booked, the owner David did his up most to accomodate us and called us back to say that he had moved a few things around and could now fit us in. Unfortunately, my son was... More

Stopped off here on a day-hike and was really taken aback by how relaxed and friendly the place was to start with. The food and beer was excellent too, so I have no hesitation recommending this lovely pub for drinks and/or a meal. The garden looks lovely too - and should be amazing when Spring has properly 'sprung' ;)
