It’s possible to taste the world in Gravesham with great places to eat and drink across the borough – with lots of options for a short or longer stay too to fully enjoy all the area has to offer.


From Asian cooking how it should be tasted to contemporary Mediterranean cuisine complete with panoramic views of the river Thames, perfect for a romantic night out or a celebration with friends or family. There’s also a growing street food scene centred on the borough market in Gravesend, with no trip to the pier complete without fish and chips – ours are award-winning don’t you know – and an Italian gelato ice-cream for afters. With traditional town and village pubs with links to Dickens and cricket – there’s plenty of choice for a Sunday roast with cafes and tearooms to while away an afternoon for a pastry or a cream tea or two.

Gravesham is part of the National Hygiene rating scheme, which allows you to check out your favourite pubs, clubs, take-aways and restaurant hygiene ratings. Only businesses with 4 and 5 ratings are listed here. Inspections are an on-going process and listings will alter accordingly to reflect changes.
