We don’t serve fast food we serve fresh food as fast as we can.

Breakfast is served from 9am - 11am and lunch is served from 11.30am - 3pm daily.

Arthurs restaurant is located at The Gardeners Garden Centre at Rushmore Hill & has tripled in size since it was built in 1997. The restaurant is situated in a relaxing picturesque garden setting covering nearly one acre.

Inside Arthurs you can enjoy dining in either the traditional Kentish barn setting, evoked by the extensive use of green oak in its design, the beautiful light & airy orangery which overlooks the garden itself, along with our “garden room” which allows the roof to be opened to enjoy the summers sun. Outside, Arthurs boasted two outsides eating areas, one with views overlooking the millions of plants in the garden centre & the other within Arthurs garden itself.

 From our kitchen we cook up surprising dishes influenced by current trends, but you can always expect familiar home comforts. Our chefs are committed to using the finest local ingredients in our recipes, some even picked from our own greenhouse. We endeavour to do these ingredients justice & hope you will enjoy our hand-crafted dishes.

Our traditional English breakfast is served 9-11am daily with an alternative for vegetarians, or you may fancy Eggs Royale, a Breakfast Buttie or American Style Pancakes.

At lunchtime, you can enjoy a selection of fresh Sandwiches, Toasties & Jacket Potatoes, along with our British Beef Burger, Hand Carved Honey Roasted Ham, Double Egg & Chips, Pancetta Gratinated Mac ‘n’ Cheese, and much more. We also have a selection of daily specials, with many homemade recipes to entice your taste buds.

On the lighter side there is a selection of delicious salads, our 'Summer Salad' – Mozzarella, Rocket, Balsamic, Strawberry & Melon – is a must try! Along with our locally made Quiches, Chinese ‘Sung’ Pork & Chilli, Cranberry & Coriander Chicken Wings, there is something for everyone.

To satisfy a sweet tooth, customers can choose from freshly baked Cakes, Scones, Tarts & savouries made in-house daily by our passionate bakers. Jennifer, our Head Baker, has dedicated her life to baking & brings a European flavour to the sweet treats in our cake counter.

We have just come home from a delightful afternoon tea at Coolings. We had SUCH a lovely afternoon. The two young girls who took care of us were such a credit to your company!”
