Got offered 20% off as we walked by but what a let down. My wife ordered the croque monsiuer and half way through discovered a hair in her cheese. This put us right off and although they did apologise and offer a small discount we won't be back.

The reason for the title is that there are much better places to eat in Canterbury. This is a restaurant in the City centre that doesn't seem to need to try too much and that reflects in the service. It is one of those non-attentive waiter restaurants where you have to get their attention if you want anything other than... More

We were in the area and had never been to Canterbury before so we had to pay a visit. I was not expecting anything great as I thought we would be ripped off in a tourist trap and this place was pretty close to the entrance to the cathedral. They seem to go for their Belgian beers in a big... More

Went to watch The Hotsy Totsy's sing there tonight with a big group of people (some I completely didn't know, because they are part of a big dance community all over canterbury). He had been quite abrupt with us already and pressured us into ordering drinks before we were ready, even though we asked if we could have a few... More

We had a great dinner here - the main courses and starter were brilliant. The venue and ambience were matched by terrific serving staff. We both really enjoyed our evening meal here. Unfortunately we saw a deal for weekday early breakfast for £5 and so next morning we turned up only to find it closed. Even though the website and... More

This place is really tricky, the food is really very good, quality, portion size, price all spot on. The downside is the waiting, we must have waited almost an hour, it seemed everyone around us, was in the same situation too. People only having drinks, had a speedier time. We were given some free bread and our waitress was very... More

Stopped in for lunch after wandering around the Cathedral. Sat myself inside as was a bit wind swept. Staff are very relaxed, with little urgency, but as it was a holiday weekend I was in no hurry. I had a pulled pork ciabatta and Vedetta Extra. Several other patrons were frustrated with the speed of receiving their food, which detracted... More

We have been offered lovely ribs and salad for just £10 which tasted amazing, and we could eat as much as we wanted . Lovely atmosphere as well with music in the background .The prices of pints of...

After reading some of the other reviews, there seems to be a theme here...The food was great, really delicious but when we first went in and placed a drinks order, it took nearly half an hour for them to arrive. We had only ordered 3 glasses of house wine so I can't see why it took so long. What concerned... More

I've been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and I love the atmosphere and the beer selection; they also have enough vegetarian fare that there are always options and the food is always to a good standard; however the service is far too slow. As a table of 4, we were seated quickly and the drinks and starters came in... More
