The Atrium

Tucked away in Rochester High St is this little gem: The Atrium.

We entered after we saw a sign advertising a lunch-time special. We got so much more!

Our waitress seated and handed us the aforementioned lunch-time special (two courses for £11.95) and informed us that the building was over 200 years old, an oddly timed but useful snippet of information.

Floorboards which are , apparently, made of old wooden ships.

Some minutes later we had decided on our food and what arrived was quite something. I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

Smoked salmon, mackerel, and a poached egg (yes that is a poached egg and not cream cheese!).

Do yourself a favour and visit this little place if you live in or around Rochester. If you have friends or family in the area, make up a reason to go and see them; go to the Atrium.

Great value for money and , I would imagine, quite a romantic little restaurant if you are there for later than 4pm. I only wish we had had everything on the menu so I could have taken more photos. Otherwise, no complaints !

Have a great week everyone 🙂
