I really really loved dining here. This cosy yet modern restaurant has all the class and top end food of a Michelin starred restaurant without being stuck up about it. The service was delivered with warmth and efficiency , the food to die for. This is now my partner and my own go to restaurant for special occasions, if it... More

This was my second visit for my sons birthday and we opted for the 3 course set lunch menu. The choices were varied but I chose a crab, avocado and prawn salad to start followed by Duck Breast in a green peppercorn sauce, both of which were beautifully presented and cooked. My dessert, which was gorgeous was a hazelnut steamed... More

Superb restaurant. Can't praise it enough. Excellent food, complete with tasty bread rolls, complimentary amuse bouches and sorbet between courses. Coffee served with delicious petit fours. Fantastic friendly service, you just can't fault this restaurant. Hope to go back again soon.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend as the ideal place for our group of 23 to have a celebratory lunch. The staff were so friendly and helpful, especially towards our friends who were a little less mobile. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. I prefer to pay a little extra for superb food... More

This delightful little restaurant was a hidden treasure to us! A brilliant example of the excellence of Tripadvisor! We researched this establishment before we left home for a trip to Kent. The restaurant demonstrates examples of excellence in every aspect of its business. The front of house staff have the right degree of social and technical skills, pleasant, a warm... More

This continues to be the best local restaurant to Canterbury in my opinion. Consistently superb food, beautifully presented and served professionally. Ambience warm and welcoming. Some may say expensive but I would rather spend a little more here and get food that is so good. Last night it was packed with two large groups too yet the service and food... More

The food was to die for. Attention to detail was superb. We went with family for lunch menu and excellent value for money. Regular changes in menu depending on availability of fresh produce mostly locally sourced. Many extras such as warm home made choice of rolls with starter, beautifully presented food. A real treat excellent service and ambiance. Good for... More

I cannot praise the food enough or the helpfulness of the ladies who served us. I cannot praise the music we had to endure though, a whole album of Leona Lewis twice! Mixed types of music, rather than one artist, would at least give the customer to like part of the selection.
