Nice but not good value

We went here for my Birthday as it is so highly rated. The service is exceptional, however we found some of the food to be a bit of a let-down. It was cooked very well but required more seasoning as many items were rather bland and usually when paying these prices for fine dining you often get very... read more

Four of us visited this restaurant for lunch recently. The meal was superb and well presented. Service was excellent. Good value too. Would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Simple but extremely well executed English fare, the SECOND best restaurant in Canterbury. Faultless service, friendly and professional waiting staff, excellent menu. The restaurant itself is not to my personal taste, white walls white table linen and no music, lacks atmosphere but seemed to be very popular with the 40+ crowd. The food was very very well cooked, high quality... More

We went with two friends and had a great time. This is our favourite restaurant in the Canterbury area. Good choice of food and wine is well chosen and good value. We are going back next week to celebrate our golden wedding.

We first discovered Gina, Neil, Gill and all the team over twenty years ago when they operated from their restaurant 'Beau Rivage' in Tankerton. Every occasion we visited there for luncheon, dinner or family celebrations proved delightful and quite exceptional - it became our favourite eating venue. We were just thankful that when they decided to move on, it was... More

Wow, thank you tripadvisor. I came here because of the fantastic reviews and was really pleased I did! Warm and welcome service. A very relaxed atmosphere at lunchtime and lovely setting. We ordered off of the lunchtime menu that offered brilliant value for the food that was served. I took my Grandma who really enjoyed her lunch out. We had... More

Everything is perfect! The food, the service and the ambience. The food is delicious and beautifully presented and everyone is so friendly. I stayed in the room behind the restaurant and not only was it a lovely room but the breakfast was most impressive

When my company and myself entered the restaurant, we were delightfully welcomed by the smiley and polite staff and after our coats were hung; we were shown to our neatly prepared table and handed a menu. Firstly I was extremely impressed how the menu recorded the ingredients which cause some intolerances and allergies (e.g. Milk, gluten) and there were also... More
