I took a day trip to Canterbury with my family and came across Saint Smokey's. Food was tasty, catered to all even my fussy 5yr. It had a great vibe about it, the lady behind the counter and the cook were super friendly and chatty....More

Rude people, food overpriced and very unwelcoming enviroment. Much nicer places to eat in Canterbury with good hospitality.

Best chicken we've had. We are a family of four with one very fussy eater which they accommodated with no problem at all. We didn't mind waiting 20 minutes for our food as it is cooked from scratch and fresh food shouldn't be "fast". They...More

I don't believe they take bookings, its not that type of a place. It looks like a take-away inside. Though they might have tables elsewhere. I'd Recommend giving them a call to find out. 01227 769027
