Classy meal, wonderful host, great interior and just an outstanding environment to dine in with family or as a couple. Gotta try their pigeon starter dish! Nom nom. :D

Four of us ate dinner. The menu was regional, the service was efficient and the wine list fairly standard. Two of us had salt marsh lamb for our main course and it was slightly underwhelming. Everything else was good. Would try elsewhere before coming back.

My brand new husband and I visited Canterbury as a mini moon the week after we got married. As a gift, some of our friends had paid for us to have a meal at Deesons. We weren't sure what to expect as we love food but we're not the "fine dining" sort. Deesons was just amazing. We each had a... More

We dined at Deeson's last night for my Dad's birthday (his choice). We all enjoyed a fantastic meal, 3 course and drinks worked out to £45 each. Really good menu, lovely service and anywhere that serves Curious Brew by the pint is a winner with me!

Have dined here prior to visiting the theatre on a few occasions and have never been disappointed by the food quality, the wine and the staff. Service always excellent. A popular place so reservations are recommended. There are a couple of menus, one catering for theatre- goers, between 5.00 and 7.00 pm.

Loved this place when we visited Canterbury. Gorgeous food in a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, efficient service from the staff who appear to run this place by clockwork. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. My partner and I had the Chicken and Lamb dishes which were both excellent. Would not hesitate to return here if I'm ever... More

Lovely to see a restaurant with staff that are passionate about what they do. It was just a quick lunch - so had the welsh rarebit - but so tasty. If we were local would love to try for dinner.

Thank Sessie
