I’ve been here a few times because the venue is so lovely. However I’ve not been overwhelmed by the food. My mum has the minestrone soup and she felt it was bland, the veg was not cooked enough and it had too much macaroni in...More

The only downside is that we have not been before, both myself and my wife are serious about food and in particular charcuterie and cheese, to say this place is a mecca for both is an understatement. Excellent sharing platter attentive staff great wine (...More

Visited today at lunchtime. Cafe was very busy, so the service was quite slow. The building is lovely, as is the location on the river Medway. However, the food was slightly overpriced and very disappointing. The tomato, mozzarella & pesto panini was almost cold, not...More

Being a big foodie and a massive egg fan, it’s very hard to find a place that can not only get it right, but deliver service and passion. This place has nailed this to perfection.

eli. A touch expensive but super quality local produce. Ploughmans needed more chutney and salad e.g. Tom's, onions and grapes as only 4 grapes on plate but the cheese selection was fantastic. Great industrial building and very airy. Friendly and helpful staff.More

We are a delicatessen cafe offering a wide selection of cheese, charcuterie, olives, crackers, sweet biscuits, preserves and chutneys. We source as much as we can from Kent and our neighbouring counties however we also have the best of the rest from further afield. As well as having a large selection of produce to buy from the deli counter and shop we also serve a selection of sandwiches, paninis, homemade quiches, sausage rolls and scotch eggs as well as salads. We offer a selection of smoothies and juices and our coffee has been blended specifically for us. We are set in Pump House No. 5 (an old Chatham Dockyard building) over-looking the River Medway to Upnor Castle one side and across the marina to the yachts on the other. A truly unique setting!!
