This is only my second visit in spite of having had received favourable reports of this restaurant that is located on the outskirts of Canterbury; although the restaurant is on the high street, it is a quiet location, tucked away from the main road (A28) but within walking distance of the railway station. The downside is difficulty parking close to... More

Love coming here, the food is always amazing and has never disappointed. Staff are always very friendly and attentive. Doesn't matter which dish I choose it is always the best I have ever tasted, starters mains and desserts all always unbeatable. everything cooked fresh to order, a 3 course lunch can take up to 2 and a half hours but...

Visited with my family for Birthday celebrations. Was very impressed with warm welcome from staff and food at every course was just delicious. Will definitely be back.

Was taken here by friends as a birthday celebration not having been here before or heard much about it and must confess I was slightly wary as we approached/entered as it looked like a sort of "Ye Olde Tea rooms" sort of establishment from the front/on entering. How wrong I was, as (although a little cramped) the interior was very... More

Went here last night for our wedding anniversary meal. The meal was delicious - absolutely fabulous. The ambience is very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and efficient We ordered three courses. Before you even get your starter you get hot freshly made interestingly flavoured bread rolls (and they don't stint on the butter) Then you get a tiny but... More

We really enjoyed the excellent food at this quaint and cosy restaurant in the posh suburb of Sturry, outside Canterbury itself. On a Saturday night the place was packed and service got off to a slow start, but the food was faultless, fresh, creative and packed with flavour, especially the fish. Excellent wine menu. The only downside was the poor... More

Great food with some very interesting ingredients. Excellent service - people very friendly but the restaurant had very little atmosphere.

We had dinner at this fine restaurant when visiting Canterbury this summer. I searched for local restaurants while planning our vacation and found this highly recommended one on web. It turned out to be one of the most memorable dinners during our vacation in UK. We took a train from Canterbury West to the village of Sturry for about 5... More

We were a group of 6 on a Saturday night and this popular restaurant was full but luckily we had booked well in advance. I believe that the building used to be a shop in the High Street however the area now is mainly residential. There was no bar or seating area to gather in before the meal so we... More
