Travellers' Choice
ONCE A CHURCH, PREVIOUSLY AN INN, NOW A CONTEMPORARY BRASSERIE WINE BAR For generations residents and visitors have delighted in the rich history and architecture that combine to make Rochester, Kent's shining light in the Garden of England. At the George Vaults we have continued in this rich history and added a modern twist with a touch of class. Based in the centre of Rochester with three floors and five distinctive areas, there are few venues that offer such choice and high standards. MAIN BAR Main dinning area where by day you may endulge in lunch, dinner or just enjoy a refreshing drink and by night, subtle lighting and candle lit tables create a relaxed and chilled ambience Sunday to Thursday,

We met for a birthday lunch. The food was lovely as always. I can honestly say the fish and chips was the nicest I’ve ever had. It was accompanied by homemade tartare sauce and crushed fresh peas rather than mushy peas. The Eat out to...More
