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.

What people say?

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what others have to say about Brettingtons.

Excellent food and decent portions. Excellent service and food. Don’t have a big lunch before coming here for dinner! Portions are massive. The plate in the photo is 30cm across. Yes really. I enjoyed the ribs and all the diners were enjoying their food. Recommended.
Broke my Brettingtons duck. My first visit and WOW, made to feel so welcome from the minute we walked in the door by Nefi (I think I have spelt right) and his team. Such a nice touch to be informed of their names and also advised of where toilets are, thanking Nefi during the meal, his response was superb, ” I really enjoy and take pride in my job “My partner and I shared the Wagu steak starter which was exceptional, melt in your mouth and the Ponzu dipping sauce was so good I had to request a second bowl. Main course was half a lobster with salad and sweet potato fries, it was fantastic.An overall excellent experience and I highly recommend, looking forward to our next visit and more amazing food and exceptional service.
Anniversary Treat From the moment we stepped into the restaurant the staff were exceptionally polite and professional. They introduced themselves and asked if we had dined there before, explaining where toilets etc were.Ella was a superb server, (not sure if you’re allowed to say waitress anymore), but anyway, she was brilliant.A complimentary glass of fizz for our anniversary – thank you.The food, although a high end price was excellent. Boy did I try to find fault, but nope, bill paid in full with tip!
