wonderful staff, lovely atmosphere and great food. A diamond in the rough of chatham high street!
First class treatment and a safe environment.
Fantastic food and service in beautiful surroundings.
Absolutely amazing food.
An oasis, a little gem, my favourite place
Fantastic place, the service is amazing, and it's like a little bubble where you can forget that you're in and surrounded by chatham. Love this place! Thank you
Absolutely amazing, we sat in the garden area which is lovely, the waiter was amazing he took our temperature on arrival showed us to our table and was so polite and attentive, food was amazing, well presented and cooked to perfection, we did not feel we was in Chatham, this place is a must visit, I can’t wait to return, well done guys and keep up the amazing work, see you soon
My first visit was on Friday! I can’t believe I’ve never been! I didn’t feel like I was in Chatham at all! The venue is very relaxed and the service was brilliant! It was that good I went back on Sunday! It’s definitely a must visit! And the Rochester one is great too!
Really lovely will defiantly be going back
Have been visiting Cafe Nucleus for some time now and cant give enough stars. This is really a lovely place to be. You could be anywhere you like in the world while sitting inside the cafe, or outside among the greenery of vines and ferns. The only problem is, more people have also found this little oasis.
Really like it here - food and staff are fab. One point to make, I do think it's rather expensive. I would recommend it though and I'm sure I'll be back.
Once again the whole experience was wonderful, always enjoy a visit it's just like being somewhere in the Mediterranean but with the convenience of being local. Well done keep it up, thanks
My mum and I had a lovely lunch. We were greeted warmly and it was pleasing to see covid guidelines were being adhered to. The staff were delightful and so polite and friendly. I would highly recommend nucleus cafe in Chatham.
Brilliant service & great food as usual
Delicious food, nothing ever to much of a problem. Lovely place.
We don't feel the size of the meals/portions reflect the original price, especially the burger and ploughmans. You had to pay extra for cheddar too which is part of the ploughmans. And the ploughmans consisted of a small amount of cheddar, some slices of bread, some rocket and a couple of cherry tomatoes (no cucumber or any other salad) and one small pickled onion, That was it. The burger was small and the portion of chips very tiny - nothing. The salad was just some rocket leaves. Maybe it was the 50% off but we have been previously and were quite disappointed and would not come again if this is the norm now. The original meal would have cost £49 and we would NOT have paid this had it not been 50% off,. Not good value at all.
Booked a table for two, at time of booking was told it was for an hour, requested longer but no one said anything whilst we were there but wasnt rushed off the table. Very pleasant atmosphere and polite staff. Extremely clean as always. Staff were PPE and we had our temperature taken upon entering the premises. Often visit here, an oasis on the high street.
We had a lovely lunch outside taking advantage of the Eat Out To Help Out scheme. I would recommend for a lovely ladies lunch, catering for a variety of dietary requirements. Lovely ambience and reasonable prices!
Brilliant service & good quality cant wait to come again
Up market, great atmosphere, nice food, really good place to take people around and show them how great Chatham is! Bonus is the art gallery on site
Excellent experience. Great food & drink matched by friendly and attentive staff. Will be back. Cheers
Excellent food and service, as usual. Unfortunately, because the ‘system was down’, though I received an online acknowledgement, there was no record of our booking at the cafe. Despite this, a table was found for us, despite the cafe being very busy at the time we arrived. Staff apologetic for failure of online booking system.
Always LOVED eating at Nucleus Cafe (pre-Covid/lockdown) and missed it so much during lockdown. We finally braved eating out again this month and Cafe Nucleus staff have made us feel so safe and welcome. The food is a fresh and delicious as always. We were so pleased with our first visit back, we have just had our second visit in less than a week! So good to be back and such lovely, lovely people working hard to make the experience special
