A warm welcome at the restaurant. The tables were well spaced to allow conversation. The freshly cooked bread rolls with a selection of butter were very good. My crab starter was delicious although the serving size was quite small. Other starters selected were pumpkin soup and venison which were also very good. I chose lamb for main course which was...

We were a party of 6. the staff were very accommodating and appropriately attentive. The food was very good and a lovely varied menu. One of our party is gluten intolerant and the restaurant dealt with this in a very understated way - no fuss but very understanding - made us feel very comfortable

Good to be back at Deesons, the best restaurant in Canterbury. And good to see that a set price lunch is back on the menu. The move to tapas as an alternative to the main menu never really worked for us. The restaurant was really,really busy this lunchtime. And so it should be. This is fresh food produced by a... More

The dinner at Deesons was, without question, the most superb meal I had during my stay in the UK. The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect with an eclectic assortment of dining chairs and tables, interesting wallpaper and lovely original prints of local sites. The service was first class, and my meal was absolutely delicious. It is unusual, indeed brave,... More

This was a fortuitous booking, as I have no prior experience of dining in Canterbury... but what a lucky find! From its impeccable service to its exceptional food, this is an easy restaurant to recommend. Given that prices are reasonable too, just adds to the endorsement. Book to avoid disappointment but do visit... you’ll be glad you did!

The best in freshly farm grown produce and cooked to perfection. The portion sizes are a bit small but the flavour and presentation makes up for this! Give it a go! If you want quick fresh food cooked authentically I highly recommend.

Thank jimmichoo225
