We had lunch here and it was lovely. The portions are big and the food is reasonably priced. The building itself is very old and historic. You can book a meal and a ride on a punt river ride.

We popped into this fascinating old restaurant after shopping in Canterbury on Sunday early evening. Nice atmosphere and nice food. Reasonable prices also. The building is over 500 years old so well worth a visit .

Went for a lunch / evening meal and wasn't disapointed. There was a few vegetarian options which were tasty. The atmosphere I'd say is the main selling point, it is a bit cramped however thats tp be expected really amd not really an issue.

On a busy Sunday in Canterbury staff were keen and happy to serve. Food was good, hearty and great value. Service quick and surroundings traditional and pleasing. Its location on the river also provides an excellent vantage.
