    Food order got mixed up a bit with steaks not placed on correct plates. Very noisy. Slow service which is fine if drinks were asked if top up required. Not the best visit we have had out of 5 or so.

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and served great cocktails.The food was quite tasty although we had the large steak to share and the meat quality was not anything to write home about.Service was slow and a bit disorganised.

    It was our first visit and we had gone for a bit of a wonder around the town before we came to the restaurant. Rochester we walked in an we were welcomed by a friendly person but we instantly noticed he wasn’t wearing a mask (we all were, we were following current guidelines to wear one when possible but as always you can never assume someone who isn’t wearing a mask may be exempt) so leaving that we were shown to our table. Our waitress came and asked if we wanted to order drinks (again no mask) then we saw another waitress also no mask…sadly this impacted on our experience. The food itself was ok, it was the 2nd of January and the fresh rocket leaves our started was set on looked like they had been around a bit too long. Another negative was the selection of non alcoholic drinks it’s not unusual for someone to want a non alcoholic drink but the selection was poor and the presentation of the drinks we ordered was like something from a back street pub so that was a bit of a let down. It wouldn’t be fair not to mention the portion sizes of the main courses as they were very generous especially the chips they were huge!

    We love Brettingtons. By and large the staff are always extremely welcoming and make you feel at home. They are very attentive and you are never left with an empty glass. The food is always extremely well cooked and tasty. The atmosphere is always buzzing if not a little too loud at times but it’s certainly not offensive. We are always assured of a good night out in Brettingtons whether we go as a couple or with friends and family. Always recommend as a safe bet for great food and good time. The food is not cheap but priced reasonably for the quality and standard. Love it and will be back again and again and again.

    It was good to be out as I couldn't eat out last year for my birthday but food needs some work. Crispy beef starter was not crispy and squid was like rubber, my partner eat the squid coating but squid was poor. Half lobster very nice as we're baby rack of ribs but sweet potato fries over salted, salt us personal choice. Waiting staff excellent served by Jim, but starters, bearing in mind they were nearly £10 were poor.

    I booked online a week prior to going for my husbands birthday, and notifies them of one vegan. 45 mins before we were due I got a phone call to ask what I wanted as they needed prior warning for vegans 🤷‍♀️. I am used to a vegan menu if only a couple of choices. It had said on the web they accommodate all dietary needs. So a little taken back when they said they only found out in the morning! Clearly a problem with the Internet system they are using. When I saw the menu I realised there are many starter choices and not so many main meal choices. It is literally steak/burgers and lobster. I ordered the veggie burger without the cheese and couldn’t have the mayo or coleslaw. But a delicious dressing was put in the burger and it was outstanding as were the truffle fries!! When I paid the lady by cash, I was asked if I wanted my change….call me old fashioned, but yes please don’t ever assume I will give you a tip. We aren’t living in America, the tip is a choice. Return the change in a dish and I will then choose what I want to leave you. It just left a bad feeling especially as her attitude changed when I said I’d like it back. I did leave a tip but smaller than I would have otherwise. Overall we had a lovely experience and would return, but do feel you could improve on these few things. Maybe look at your booking system and why you are not getting them through straight away so you are forewarned about someone vegan and can offer them the coleslaw and vegan mayo in the burger. Thank you for the little candle in the sorbet at the end….it was a nice gesture.

    Another good meal at Brettingtons. We all enjoyed what we had and the service was great. We had all had starters, two had Safron Squid, one spicy crispy fried beef and a Bretts salad followed by one a whole lobster, two fillet steaks and a Roasted duck breast between the four of us and everthing was great. The waitress was especially helpful and amusing. Thankyou Brettingtons, we will again be back for more.
