We had to dine early as we were attending a concert at the Cathedral - we were the first customers through the doors when they opened for evening service at 5pm. Service was excellent. Starters & Mains were good but my wife, who knows a good dessert, was really impressed by the poached pears with sticky toffee pudding and honeycomb... More

My family and I recently visited Deesons for my little sisters 21st birthday. All five of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience and recommend this place highly. The lunch menu was a great price at £15 for two courses or £18 for three. We called in prior to our reservation to drop off a large birthday cake and large balloon (we... More

The extensive set lunch menu at £18 for three courses was really good value as all the courses were freshly cooked, very tasty and. very well executed. The staff were all very attentive and friendly. We will certainly return.

As Deesons is a stone's throw from The Marlowe theatre, they do a Pre-Theatre Menu. Staff were very welcoming. We were asked on arrival if we were going to the Marlowe and once we confirmed, the servings were timed to accommodate this. Deesons make a thing about using locally sourced produce (food and drinks) and they grow and rear much... More

Living in Canterbury I have had the pleasure of several visits to this lovely restaurant. The food is consistently excellent (the duck is always fantastic) and the service is friendly but unobtrusive. Fresh local ingredients and a drinks menu that includes good quality local wines and beers combine with a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere. A great place and highly recommended.
