This is an amazing large Belgian brasserie. We come here at least once during every visit to Canterbury and on this visit we had lunch on the first day, dinner on the second day, and I had a quick beer on our final day before...More

The service was slow (not a problem) and the food did not arrive entirely as ordered (not a problem and possibly my fault). It was reasonably good, except for a chemically-tasting strawberry milkshake, which we asked to be replaced with a brownie. The manager then...More

We stopped by here after a long day's walking in Kent, and enjoyed our meal - the Bouillabaisse was very good indeed, and the salad fresh and varied. Service was prompt and cheerful, and the prices not excessive. We drank wine, but the beer menu...More

Fantastic choice of Belgian Beers. We tried a stick of beers, 6 x 1/3 pint of different beers and enjoyed it so much we ordered the other. Trying 12 Belgian beers in one night. The food was good but not special.

We stopped in for breakfast and to be honest made a mistake. The food was OK nothing to write home about, but the service was really below expectation. The place was empty, so one can´t argue that they were full and could not keep up.

We ate lunch here, and largely chose the place because of their very extensive Trappist beer selection. (Belgian beers aren't generally my thing, but my husband loves them.) The service was a bit spotty--just a bit slow--and they were out of the first two beers...More
