Great to hear that we made such a fine first visit impression- that's how it should be time after time which makes your second and subsequent visit tests a challenge but we'll happily accept! Regards, Ian

Bartellas has a great selection of Italian classics and drinks. The food that you are given is of high quality and good presentation. Our only problem is that the waiting time is rather long.

Thanks for your comments Noah. Wait times for food, drink even tables aren't normally an issue but I suppose it depends on one's expectations- if you require an express service simply let us know another time please and we'll oblige. Regards, Ian

A privately owned 175 seat restaurant with cocktail lounge and bar serving Mediterranean inspired food, Bartellas is a favourite of the charming village of Meopham. Elegantly appointed in wood and sisal, clean lines and contemporary furnishings, Bartellas offers comfortable and attractive surroundings plus excellent continental service including those little touches of linen napkins, predominately round tables, complimentary still and sparkling water and bread. The recent orangery extension and private dining salon upstairs for a maximum of 24 at one table ensures that whatever the occasion, Bartellas can cater for your dining and party needs. A regular changing a la carte menu, a Sunday menu with all the traditional roasts and the prix-fixe menu available Monday to Saturday lunchtimes and early evenings Monday to Friday offer great value for money- ��10.55 for one course including a 175ml glass of wine, small beer or soft drink.
