Now, it is not often that one encounters a restaurant that really has it all, and aside from the lack of outside eating space this restaurant really does! The owner and his right hand man (nick) are a formidable team and I guarantee you will be made to feel very welcome. You will have to book if you want the... More

We had a family lunch at Deesons and it was a wonderful meal and really enjoyable occasion. The food was universally excellent and the service very attentive and individual. All who came really enjoyed themselves and I could not recommend Deesons highly enough. When we are next back in Canterbury I would certainly eat here again, without hesitation

This was one of our favorite restaurants during an memorable, weeklong trip to England. The cuisine was superb, particularly the salmon and lamb. It was clear that the chef had a refreshingly distinctive style. Furthermore, members of the staff were very courteous and professional. My only recommendation to readers is to take your time here and enjoy.

I booked this restaurant on the basis of reading some Tripadvisor reviews when I went to Canterbury for the day with my other half and I was not disappointed! The service was excellent - they were very attentive without being too intense and were very accommodating. The food was absolutely beautiful - all made with local produce and much of... More

Modern feel and very close to Cathedral, we (4 of us) sat outside as we have a dog but service very good (sometimes you get forgotten). We had a selection from the pre theatre menu - very good value, the fish cakes are huge (good advice not to order extra veg !) all decided to go for starters and mains... More

We went to Canterbury for our sons graduation and ate in Deesons on Wednesday 16th July. We chose this restaurant based on my sons recommendation and we were not disappointed, the food is first class. The service was fantastic and the location is amazing. Do not hesitate to eat here, a first class evening was had by all.

I really do not know what possessed me to eat at this place again. The starter was measly and the main course, Lamb, cold. When I asked for another the request was treated with disdain. I didn't eat dessert as the first two courses were far from satisfactory. I went to the Dolphin after to satisfy my remaining hunger. Avoid.

I have been to Deeson's on several occasions and have never been disappointed with the service or food. There is a wonderful atmosphere and the proprietors are have eyes in the back of their head and make sure the staff are providing excellent service. The food is local, beautifully presented and delicious. On my last visit with My parents they... More
