An April 2021 newcomer – an 80 seat restaurant housed in a Victorian Pumphouse beside the Medway river. Initially it is just open under the arches and on the wood decking overlooking the River Medway, with views of Queen Elizabeth 1st’ gunpowder store, the grey stone castle of Upnor on the opposite shore. As well as the ability to sample the distillery’s cocktails, the Pumproom will present a fine-dining experience and its riverside windows offer great views. A meal might start with Bone marrow, chicken crackling, smoked eel, cockles, radish & toast; followed by Ash rolled 40day aged fillet, beef shin ragout, with Granny Smith tart, toffee popcorn, and Masthouse Whisky custard to finish.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
