Went back this year whilst on holiday as had been very impressed last year. However, found that lunch menu we had enjoyed last year had been discontinued in February this year and replaced with a 'British tapas-style' menu, much to our disappointment. Thus, only a la carte & tapas menu available now, and while good is certainly good, prices are... More

Very rich but very delicious! I highly recommend the English red wine. It's absolutely divine. Great service too.

On the occasion of my daughter's graduation she chose Deeson's as the restaurant for her celebratory dinner. Excellent choice! Our party of seven enjoyed different starters (scallops, pigeon, brocolli soup) and main courses (tenderloin, seabass, chicken breast, lamb, cheese soufflé) with excellent wines. We had booked the private dining room and were served by very friendly staff. On this very... More

The food here is amazing and very good quality. The presentation is delightful as well. Unfortunately for us the service was extremely poor and one of the worst restaurant services received. Our waitress was a woman who very very rude and not at all polite and lacked basic manners. She was very rushed with us and very sharp with us.... More

En route from Bruges to home. Stopped off in Canterbury and booked a table here as the atmosphere and delicious smells lured us in! We weren't disappointed ! Excellent service and exceptional food. Would recommend without hesitation.
