The Rochester Hotel
The Rochester Castle Hotel was once a dive bar and sweaty live-music den. When Stu Moss, Bridgitte and Jon Costelloe (owners of Vic Bar, Aviary Hotel and Dr Morse) revived it with a new lick of paint and dropped "castle" from the name, they kept the good aspects (a stage and DJ platform in the bar area) but smartened up the menu.
