We have been here a few times and never had a bad meal as only live local staff are lovey and once in it's very nice Local produce is used and the chef loves her job as she came in to see us on one occasion I highly recommend

Visited this restaurant for lunch with my wife as part of an ongoing quest to lunch at every restaurant along Rochester high street. We were the only people in which made us a little wary. My wife ordered shepherds pie and I went for the lamb shank. The food came out and was exactly what we wanted. Piping hot, served... More

When you enter the Gordon Hotel and Steak House Restaurant it is like entering the history of good old England. Just next to the entrance we entered the restaurant where a young lady welcomed us. As we asked why it was so quiet in there she answered she didn't know. 10 tables in an antique room and when you look... More
