Spending the day in Canterbury with friends we were looking for somewhere to have lunch where we could enjoy the beautiful day. Looking up we spotted a terrace above La Trappiste. We went in and asked if we could sit upstairs on the terrace. The...More

Came here today for lunch with my girlfriend. She had the BLT sandwich and I had the smoked salmon in Ciabatta and we shared some chips. Delicious food and great service. Next time I'll have to start trying all the beers lol 😊😊

Ended up here twice on our visit to Canterbury. Firstly for coffee, cake and cream tea. Then for pre dinner drinks from the extensive selection of Belgium beers. Friendly staff and the opportunity to sit outside makes this an ideal place to enjoy.
