The Goods Shed is my favourite place in Canterbury! On moving back to Kent, I was so happy to discover this wholesome, alternative, funky place. Great food stalls, great place to buy all your local fresh foods, and lovely community atmosphere.

I have been to The Goods Shed before and enjoyed it and this time I went with 9 of my lovely friends for a girlie day out. First we shopped in the Goods Shed market area then had lunch in the actual restaurant. The food is good quality and well prepared. We were served by Sam, a delightful young lady.... More

I've been several times now, always making sure head chef Rafael was in charge. Recently he wasn't in. The sous chef was. I was already preparing my apologies to our friends for the not so good quality. I'm glad to say we has a delicious lunch. So my worries were totally unjustified. Rafael got himself a very good second in... More

We had invited 2 close friends for an outing to the Goods Shed including a lunch in the restaurant. The waitress was new, which was noticeable. She was very nice and then you'll forgive almost anything. I had made sure head chef Rafa was there and every single dish (4 persons X 3, including a pre-starter) was prepared specially for... More

I like the building; an old railway shed, it's got a certain atmosphere which makes an interesting place to eat. The food is nice enough, but overpriced. I'm not sure it always was, I use to come here and see student types now days it seems to be a more well healed crowd.

I come here regularly to have a lunch, dinner or just buy something on the market. Whatever I ate here, was always the most delicious! A little bit expensive though, but definitely worth the price! The service is very good too. Well done! :)

I used it have breakfast here a lot. I like it so much I took three of my freinds here but on this occasion the food was not good. The sausages were not there usual type and all the meat in the dish was dry and inedible. The manager came over as I didn't want to eat it and asked... More

Although very informal, the restaurant creates a lovely sense of occasion with fine linen and silverware on scrubbed pine tables. Service was charming though over-stretched, could have done with another server. Food was great - the best ingredients, cooked simply. Coffee not so good - very 'green' taste. Seem to be current fashion- maybe it's just me.
