Lunch with my baby grandson & daughter in law

Lovely seafood paella & the staff were really accommodating regarding the toilets being upstairs, they allowed my daughter in law & bubba to use the downstairs toilet. A really good lunch & experience with a 5 month old as not all places are so helpful. Many thanks to the staff who served us 😁

Went here for a Christmas do, our table wasn't ready on time but that wasn't an issue as being the run up to Xmas you expect delays. The downstairs barman was extremely rude when enquiring about a pitcher (jug of vodka and red bull) we were told they aren't worth the money and to choose something else! Went ahead with... More

Food came out luke warm and on cold plates. Poor presentation with a meagre portion - 3 mini crostini with the pate starter; not sure how you're meant to eat the pate with these! However a good atmosphere on the dance floor which we all enjoyed after our meal 😉 although bar staff were a little frosty & not in... More

Food was hit and miss. Starter was inedible and was sent back 1st time as cold but still awful when sent back still lukewarm! Had to look it up on online menu to find out exactly what it was meant to be as had ordered in advance. My friend who had ordered the same couldn't eat it either. Salmon was... More

There are some great places to eat and enjoy yourself in the wonderful town of Canterbury, unfortunately this is not one of them. We booked a VIP table for a 21st Birthday with a group of 10. The little roped off VIP area was so small it only allow 4 people sitting around a very small 2 person table and... More

Having finished work late one evening in Canterbury, i found myself wanting a quick drink before heading to bed in a local hotel. The doorstaff were friendly, and approachable and the staff were attitude free and very polite. Drinks prices are reasonable considering it's location and the fact it's a late night venue. Will certainly return, and looking forward to... More

Came here with friends for a night out, we were sitting on the seats by the entrance waiting for a friend so we could leave when the bouncer told us that we couldn't sit on the seat and that we either had to go back into the club (where it was packed) or leave. The bouncer didn't like it when... More
