Chapter One Restaurant Locksbottom Kent

Chapter One Restaurant Locksbottom Orpington, best restaurants in Kent Chef & Managing Partner, Andrew McLeish and his team have created an impressive modern European menu, focusing on fantastic seasonal ingredients - our extensive wine list perfectly complements Andrew's refined cooking.

At Chapter One, we believe that offering value for money is just as important as award-winning food. The three course a la carte menu is available for lunch & dinner for £51.95 for three courses and on a Wednesday - Saturday lunchtime there is also a Menu Du Jour for £34.95 for three courses. We also offer a less formal brasserie menu available Wednesday - Saturday.

Chapter One in Kent is Modern, stylish and comfortable

Andrew McLeish's relaxing venue sees crisply linened tables and gastronomic prints set a refined tone. He has struck a nigh perfect balance here between assured contemporary cooking with plenty of surprises and a pressing need to offer value.
