I went here for a family occasion and I've got to say it was not good at all... waited ages for food which was even worse, I just had a burger and the meat was dry, it was really loud and the music didn't go with the restaurant at all. Will not be going again.

There will be a beer here you will like even if you hate beer. Friendly and approachable staff, comfy seats and great view of the hoy poloy through... More

Our 2nd night in Canterbury & saved going to La Trappiste for our 20th Anniversary celebrations. We didn't book but wish we had as table options were limited. Service was slow. Starter was lovely ( camembert). We both ordered fillet steak with option of mash or chips- we both chose chips & both got mash! Quick to resolve & got... More

Meal was good but very diappointed to find out we could have had 40% off our food bill if we had said 'twilight' when ordering our food. What a shame the waiting staff could not have mentioned this when we ordered as we did not noticed the board outside the restaurant when entering as we had been many times before... More

We stopped here looking to rest our weary legs after much walking and exploring and were soon thrilled to spot the Belgian Beer menu. The bar man was extremely knowledgeable about the beer and was able to recommend a beer for me. Although we didn't eat here, the food looked amazing and had good size portions. It was a relaxed...

So, we rocked up at around 6pm ish which appeared to be shift change over time as we were steadfastly ignored by the waiting staff for 15 minutes after changing our minds about eating outside. When eventually acknowledged, my choice of drink was not available but I had to ask for another look at the wine list. duh! When it... More

Called in for a cup of coffee and as I hadn't eaten all day ordered what I thought would be a simple cheese and tomato sandwich - how bad could it be? The coffee tasted as if it had been boiling for ten years or so, so thick you could stand a spoon in it and was foul. The sandwich... More

We decided to have a late lunch on a busy bank holiday weekend. We were given a warm welcome and a suitable table was cleared to accommodate our party of 5. So far, so good. The salad arrived without any dressing, couldn't get anyone's attention to took it back to the bar. The hamburger was well below par and the... More
