The wife and I were in Canterbury on tuesday the 24th of march 2015, and while looking around the old streets of Canterbury we came accross the the Deesons English Restuarant in Sun Street. We went inside and found the old fashioned building on the outside was carried in to the inside, which gave the feeling of stepping back in... More

Food here is wonderful and there is an interesting very British menu. There are a lot of tables inside and it always seems busy. Would recommend.

We decided on this restaurant after reading some of the reviews, I must say we were not disappointed, the service was very good staff very attentive, the house wine both white and red were both very acceptable. The food was very good but a bit of a wait but well worth waiting for. If we were to visit Canterbury again... More

3of us chose the set lunch which had 5 starters, mains and desserts to choose from&. £15 for two courses , £18 for 3. Main menu had a very wide choice and both included fish options and imaginative veggie dishes. Food was beautifully presented, service attentive but not overwhelming and ambience very attractive . Will definitely return again.

I had been here before for lunch and had my usual fish n' chips, which isn't really a good enough gauge of a place. Although, to be fair they were awesome fish n' chips. This time we decided to take my in-laws when they came to visit. Every course was superb - just really good produce, good perfectly and with... More

I have dined a number of times at Deesons and I have always found it consistently fabulous. The food is always top quality, locally sourced ingredients put together in different and tasty ways. Interesting takes on British classics. Set in a refined dining room with attentive and knowledgeable staff. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the staff bent over backwards to accommodate our group and our schedule. Despite our large booking, we had to change several details at the last minute and Deeson's did everything they could to make it work. But oh, the food!!! Everything our party ordered was wonderful. Not only were the various dishes... More

Our group (19 of us) had prebooked and preselected our menu as our experience has been that most British restaurants and pubs are not set up to do last minute large groups. At the last minute we learned that our bus driver wanted to be back in London an hour earlier than we had planned so we asked the restaurant... More
