A perfect evening

It would be difficult to find a fault with this restaurant. The staff were excellent, the food was exceptional, and the wines competitively priced.

Cant wait to go again, its the... More

Simple and good. Had a set lunch there on the terrace and it seems to be a rather good place worth a try for dinner

Booked Deesons because it is always a safe bet, in getting fantastic food, service and atmosphere. First choice in Canterbury for both work and family. Tonight was no exception. Local food beautifully prepared, some English wine and exceptional service. Highly recommended 👍👍👍
