We were lucky to book a table for lunch time as the place was full but even with this number of people the food was fantastic. Beautiful homemade bread rolls with butter (always a treat when you are on a post Christmas diet!) followed by decent sized starters. The mains - rump of lamb and belly of pork (with the... More

The waiting staff although young were welcoming ,pleasant, and discretely efficient. The food was outstanding and the little extra tasters were very good. All in all we had a wonderful time and...

We had been here once before and had a fantastic meal so we were interested to see if our second visit would be as good. And it really didn't disappoint. There was 4 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed every course, each one exceeding our expectations. The staff are brilliant, we can't fault this restaurant in any way. Thanks... More

Wonderful welcome, great ambiance, superb food, fabulous service with the little 'treats' in between courses an added bonus. Would highly recommend this restaurant as the food is first class. Extensive wine and drinks list available and menu has great variety and choice.

This is only my second visit in spite of having had received favourable reports of this restaurant that is located on the outskirts of Canterbury; although the restaurant is on the high street, it is a quiet location, tucked away from the main road (A28) but within walking distance of the railway station. The downside is difficulty parking close to... More

Was taken here by friends as a birthday celebration not having been here before or heard much about it and must confess I was slightly wary as we approached/entered as it looked like a sort of "Ye Olde Tea rooms" sort of establishment from the front/on entering. How wrong I was, as (although a little cramped) the interior was very... More
