Visited as a group of three for dinner. Great menu, unusual surroundings. Staff excellent and the whole evening a triumph. knocked off points as loos were not really good enough and could be improved upon. If I am in the area again I will be returning!!!!!!

I've been to Canterbury a few times and I wish I have discovered this place earlier. It's unusual and memorable, impressively spacious and gives this kind of posh casual vibe. Oh and they know how to cook. Smoked eel. Skate. Chocolate Nemesis. Small size starters, reasonable mains and desserts. Enjoyed every mouthful. Hoping to visit again soon.

Visited The Goods Shed on Saturday for a birthday lunch. Had not been for sometime and it was good to renew my acquaintance with it! Lovely busy ambience when you walk in to the market where there is some lovely organic and local produce for sale. The restaurant is rustic and atmospheric and the waitresses very friendly and helpful. Small... More

The Goods Shed is one thing of those places I keep coming back to on family visits to Canterbury. There is something for everyone from the farmer's market with locally sourced produce, through to small dishes at the bar, and the restaurant, with a menu that pulls in ingredients from the market. I had lunch in the restaurant comprising a... More

I Waited an hour for breakfast after the order was taken. When I asked, they said they had lost the order. The manager has come over and offered a free breakfast, which is the right thing to do. This place can be amazing the organisation has not been consistent recently.

We were in a group of eight and we had a great time. Enjoyed the food. Staff was helpful - larger groups are always a bit more tricky.

Not too noisy, food quality excellent, quite expensive but not sufficient simple variety. Very helpful staff who were willing to make enquiries about dairy free needs, which was much appreciated.

The selection here is always interesting, using products from the market in which the restaurant is based. We lunched here, the best time for atmosphere, and yet again enjoyed ourselves. I had the tempura octopus... Nice but a bit heavy... Followed by sea bass with Mediterranean vegetables... Lovely but a little oily. My partner was more successful in his choices,... More
