This charming and picturesque public house is set in the heart of the Kentish countryside in an area of fruit farms with views of apple orchards and typical Kent oast houses. Despite being only 3 miles from the centre of the historic City of Canterbury, the lovely rural setting and the carefully tended gardens make it a perfect venue for lunch or dinner with the family, an informal business meeting, a quiet drink or just as a stopping off point on the famous North Downs Way. The building was formerly four farm cottages, auctioned on the 23rd of March 1898, and was later turned into a small village pub. In 1984 a large 40-seater restaurant was added, with views overlooking the orchards and one-acre garden. Now, The Chapter Arms, a family run business, is recognised for its excellent food and warm, friendly atmosphere. Offering a varied menu with dishes made from freshly prepared local produce. Our menus are regularly updated and daily specials are also available. The outdoor barbeque will be open opening weekends and bank holidays from mid-May throughout the summer months. Family and business functions are always welcome. Live 60’s music or jazz evenings with candlelit dinners are held regularly and details of these evenings appear on our Whats On page of this site. Special Events are organised regularly. Watch this site for further announcements. Join us for live Jazz in the bar every Monday evening including Bank holidays, or listen to the Jazz from the restaurant whilst enjoying a candlelit dinner. Live 60\’s music in the restaurant with candlelit dinner the last Tuesday of every month (£25.00 per head). Customer participation welcome. Please book early.
