Brettington's Steak and Lobster House in Rochester Kent - Restaurant

Our Story

Alan Brett and Steve Pennington’s first journey began over 11 years ago, when they realised they couldn’t go out for a late Sunday lunch anywhere around Rochester. They realised as foodie’s and lovers of eating out with family and friends, they couldn’t be the only people who like to dine out late on a Sunday, and so the journey began of opening Oliver’s Bar & Restaurant. Shortly after Rochester Coffee Company fell into their and hands which they redeveloped and is now run by Alan’s daughter Abigail.

After a couple of years of establishing Oliver’s as the place to be in Rochester high street, after a long lunch (you can see where this is going) they saw a gap in the restaurant trade on Rochester high street for a Steak and Lobster house, this is when Brettingtons Steak and Lobster House became the next journey.

Celebration Meal Came to the restaurant after a friend had raved about it (before lockdown) to celebrate a new job. Had a wonderful evening – service was top class, food was amazing (although the chicken wings starter was the messiest thing I’ve ever eaten, it did taste amazing) and the drinks were delightful. All in all, this topped off a lovely evening.

Great Restaurant Last minute booking for the family and we were really pleased with the choice. Great service, really friendly staff – thanks Jim! Lobster was amazing, other food all great too. One small issue but resolved straight away. Kids menu was really reasonable price and great portions for our older kids. Will definitely be back!

Unreal food and drinks! We visited here last night for our anniversary. When I booked it had a list of reasons for going, I clicked anniversary and didn’t think anything of it. Upon arrival we were wished a happy anniversary by two members of staff, we then sat at our table and were greeted with two complimentary glasses of Prosecco which was so lovely. The steak was unreal! So yummy. We also has the garlic bread on the side it was unreal. The desert menu was also very yummy. I cannot fault our experience here. Will defo be going back soon! Everything was perfect… the steak, the setting, the cocktails. A perfect date night!

Anniversary Meal Had a lovely meal at Brettingtons last night. It was a special occasion and it felt special. The manager and waiting staff we’re so attentive. We had steak, lobster of course and Octupus and all dishes were delicious. I live locally and have been meaning to try it for some time, I must say our experience was excellent and we will definitely be returning for special occasions.

Second visit love this place Our second visit for my boyfriends birthday after a friend recommended this place last year. Not disappointed at all. Great first impressions. I ordered an Aperol spritz which wasn’t even on the menu specifically but this was no issue, it arrived quickly and in a glass as big as my face, needless to say I was chuffed. Starters were amazing. The lobster and crab seasonal salad was incredible! Would love to see this on the permanent menu. My boyfriend had the wings which you cant really go wrong with. He was pleased to see the T bone back on the menu after not having it between previous lockdowns when we visited before. Cooked beautifully and such a huge portion of chips. We both upgraded for £1.50 extra to sweet potato and truffle and Parmesan fries and couldn’t even finish them all. The dessert menu looks amazing but unfortunately we were both way too full to managed pudding even though I was tempted by at least 3 different things ! Not a cheap restaurant but you get what you pay for. Idea for special occasions and date nights. Quality food, homely atmosphere and top notch steak and lobster. Definitely would recommend. We’ll definitely be visiting again and bringing friends and family along.
