We really enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant a few months before so decided to give it a go again, however something went wrong this time. The steaks were not what the menu promised, not the right cut, really tough and severely underdone. The house...More

The evening meals we had in this restaurant were excellent. Well cooked and presented nicely. Good value for money. The staff were friendly and obliging. Up to Premier Inn's usual high standard.

If you’re here for the day, you should try to make time for Canterbury’s famous cathedral, as well as the less famous but equally impressive St Martin’s Church and St Augustine’s Abbey. Or you could work up an appetite for dinner at Thyme with a punt on the River Stour or some leisurely shopping on King’s Mile or Whitefriars.
