After reading very good reviews of this restaurant, my husband and I chose to book here for our honeymoon. We weren't at all disappointed. The food was amazing. We eat out a lot and also ate at a Michelin Starred restaurant whilst in the area, and Deesons, in our opinion, ranked much higher. I had sirloin with braised shin and... More

Had a lovely lunch today with a group of 6 friends. The food was excellent, staff friendly efficient and attentive. Would definitely go again. I would recommend booking in advance as it did get busy. The food is locally sourced and we had a lovely sparkling Kent wine. The restaurant was able to produce a menu at very short notice... More

Stopped off here by chance for a late lunch following a "Black Friday" shopping trip to Canterbury, and we are very glad we did. The place was extremely welcoming, the menu enticing. I had the trio of sausages, sourced from a local butcher. These were excellent as was the rich onion gravy that went with it. Of special note was... More

We dined as a couple on 20th November 2016 as it was my wifes' birthday. We chose this restaurant as the "special occasion venue" after much searching in the city. The welcome was warm and the service was very friendly and attentive. Tables do not have cloths and are bare wood but the cutlery and plates were all very clean.... More

We really liked the food. The menu was a bit limited however. The wooden floor had been polished recently making it like an ice rink in places which made things a bit tricky. The waitress brought out the wrong drink but amusingly I liked it so no harm done on this occasion. We would re-visit.
