Hope you do try us again Sheree but first please do answer my private email sent earlier today to establish when you visited so that I can investigate. Sure you have the right place? We've been trading for over 14 years! Regards, Ian

Enjoyed our meal. Very clean and in nice inside. Disappointed with the rose wine, expensive and tasted like a cheap wine. Bill was unclear as we were a large party and only two bills per table which I found odd. Food was good, though portions...More

Best check out the website where we show a dedicated vegan menu. Recall that the difficult woman slagged us off for using vegan cheese from Sainsbury's, not Tesco! Regards, Ian

A privately owned 175 seat restaurant with cocktail lounge and bar serving Mediterranean inspired food, Bartellas is a favourite of the charming village of Meopham. Elegantly appointed in wood and sisal, clean lines and contemporary furnishings, Bartellas offers comfortable and attractive surroundings plus excellent continental service including those little touches of linen napkins, predominately round tables, complimentary still and sparkling water and bread. The recent orangery extension and private dining salon upstairs for a maximum of 24 at one table ensures that whatever the occasion, Bartellas can cater for your dining and party needs. A regular changing a la carte menu, a Sunday menu with all the traditional roasts and the prix-fixe menu available Monday to Saturday lunchtimes and early evenings Monday to Friday offer great value for money- ��10.55 for one course including a 175ml glass of wine, small beer or soft drink.
