I asked the lady how much does an ice cream flake cost politely, completely ignoring my question she handed me an ice cream in my hand. The flake is falsely advertised to be 99p which is not the case and is actually £2.50 which is ridiculous compared to anywhere else to be honest. She was quite rude when I told... More

Stopped for a drink with my girlfriend after a day in town. Both drinks were nice and the staff were ok but I agree with previous reviews saying they're rather expensive! Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food.

Me and my friends came to this place for lunch and it looked really nice but when we got our food it was cold, hairs in our meals, scrambled egg was rubbery no taste, they haven't got signs up to say how much the drinks or the sauces are, we paid 90p for 3 ketchups! Never going here again!

The reason we visited here was its location, arrived in Canterbury and hungry Maria's was the first place on the high street. It's basic food using potentially "value" ingredients. Two white "value brand sliced loaf" bread bacon sandwiches and two cokes = £13. The two ladies serving were not rude and the food arrived quickly

Visited yesterday Canterbury yesterday. It was extremely hot and both my daughter and myself fancied an ice cream. We went to the take-away kiosk. I had one scope of rum & rasin in a normal cone and my daughter one scope of strawberry in a normal cone. This was standard ice cream - not home made or from a specialist.... More

This place is ghastly. Read the reviews: there's not much more to add. The food may or may not be past its sell-by date. The place definitely is.

My wife and I thought that that the place would be an older style of cafe. Although, our three children had reservations. So fools that we were, we went in. Within minutes, three cod and chips and two chips plus two cups of tea and water for three came to £38 with the money asked for upfront. When I queried... More

If being served by an indifferent waitress who is too busy picking the scab off their arm and chatting to a colleague to serve you is your thing, you are in luck, I was absolutely horrified and did not stay, we left immediately, I will not have ice cream served by someone who is picking scabs off their arms, utterly...
