Under the direction of acclaimed chef Andrew McLeish, modern European cooking is available in two formats. In the Restaurant, sophisticated seasonal dishes are served in a refined setting with a weekly changing 3-course Lunch Menu du Jour, a seasonally-inspired 7-course Tasting Menu and an a la carte option. In the more informal Brasserie, a selection of favourites are cooked to perfection with the finest ingredients. The drinks offering is as exciting with an AA Notable Wine List, premium spirits, and cocktails. There is also a private dining room for corporate and private occasions.

Food and drinks excellent, service good but didn’t bring side dishes with main course and had to ask for it.
Wonderful evening! Highly recommend! A great local restaurant which feels like central London service.
It was for an anniversary and birthday. Parent loved the experience. Food was amazing and service from staff was friendly and personal.
Fantastic food and service as usual. The post dinner cocktails were also so good. Mai Thai was really lovely.
Very poor service, quick to bring food, in fact too quick, but so slow with drinks, sitting with empty glasses for ages, had to repeatedly signal to waiter.
Excellent menu du jour. Short but appealing, and fresh for summer weather. Lovely baby veg and very well cooked skate and pork.
Enjoyable as ever. Food great, and service impeccable
This is a really nice restaurant with excellent food and very good service. Recommend highly.
Fantastic food as always , great service , great drinks and just love this restaurant.....
As always atmosphere and food were great a very enjoyable afternoon
An incredible birthday meal. Each course was delicious and the flavours were amazing-who know broccoli purée could taste so good :)
We have eaten here many times before and were greeted very nicely on arrival . Unfortunately we were seated at the back of the restaurant much to my dismay . The service and food were excellent , but unfortunately our evening was spoilt by a very loud boastful man on the next table. I know it was not the restaurants fault but it did spoil our evening and we left earlier than planned.
Great food and drinks, with excellent service
We had a great time
Outstanding first experience of this restaurant - perfect service, phenomenal food and a really good atmosphere for date night
excellent experience as always - consistently first class .
Food as usual very good but limited selection of bread and no extras despite the £60 cost per person. Service is not very responsive and somewhat impersonal. No interest in helping select wine other than told to scan the icon (and no offer to help). Good choice if the food drives your decision and you are less concerned about attention and ambience.
Great to be back and find Chapter One as good as ever
It is lovely to be back at Chapter One.
The menu has changed and there is an interesting choice. The cocktails are fun to try. One nice thing is to see so many of the same staff. Lovey and friendly.
A souffle as a dessert option. Wonderful!!!!!
Our first visit for over a year due to lockdowns. The food and service was as good as it always was. Great to be back.
The usual good service and food
Tasty food but overpriced! Quite noisy even without background music! I would actually say it’s a bit stiff and pompous!
Excellent food and service in a fantastic setting
It was good to bbe back. Went for Sunday lunch which was a set menu. Good value for money. I recommend the Guinea Fowl as a main course.
Fabulous as always. Special thanks to ‘Joe’ our wonderful waiter. He really looked afterwards.
Always reliably good food and service. I wish there were more places like Chapter One in Kent.
Superb. Best special night out dining in the Bromley area.
Great food, service and value for money. Chapter INE never disappoints. Well worth the drive.
Has a lovely meal. Very good value for the money.
CH 1 is our go-to destination for really special family occasions. We are never disappointed ! Excellent food beautifully presented by courteous and friendly staff in a pleasant environment - what more could you want?
Great restaurant and delicious food, would recommend.
The substantial lunchtime price hike will possibly reduce bookings in a competitive market. However, the ambience is good and the extras like the breads and petit fours welcome. The ambience is pleasant though the room can become noisy when full. We had an early booking and were glad of that.
It was disappointing to be seated so close to so many people in a half empty restaurant. Having lots of people serving the table made our meal disjointed.
Very nice ambience, great service and delicious food. It was wonderful to be back.
Excellent food, tables distanced well and waiters absolutely charming
Really pleased to be back at Chapter One for lunch. However the price of the menu de jour has increased significantly and we felt the service fell short of their usual high standards. The choice of dishes were limited but the standard good.
Been going for years to Chapter 1 it always a treat in every way -look forward to going back
The a la carte menu is excellent. Small but perfectly formed! Unusual combinations that tempt you to try everything!
Service just right.
Unfortunately there were 4 of us and we ordered our starters to be told they had run out of mackerel so we had the fish cake which was nice.3of us ordered the monkfish and the other one ordered the pork we were then told they had neither!!! And if we were earlier we could have had them then ordered another drink at 5.15 to be told the bar had shut very dissatisfied we have been going there for 40 years and the worst experience ever
We love this restaurant, the food is amazing - Andrew McLeish is a genius in the kitchen. The staff are attentive without being OTT & the atmosphere is lovely & relaxing. Perfect for a special occasion
My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful meal at C1.
Service and food were exemplary.
It was great to be out again and the staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and attentive.
