Why oh why must people from the 'Big Smoke' come to the wretched provinces and delight in slagging off the restaurants? I've eaten in my share of fine dining restaurants - I wouldn't have said 'Deeson's' is fine dining, by the way; moreover, I wouldn't have said it pretends to be - and I'd put 'Deeson's' up there with the best of them. We've enjoyed all our meals there and, since moving to Canterbury last year, and having been terribly disappointed by a number of the city's other restaurants, we've resolved it's pretty much the only place we'll take friends to. On the most recent occasion, I was persuaded to have the pork - my husband raves about the pork belly, but it's not a cut I fancy - because I was so tempted by the pork shoulder and black pudding stuffing, and bubble and squeak. It was absolutely stupefyingly good. I understand the head chef was recently voted into the top three chefs in Kent - admittedly a horribly provincial award! - and it's an accolade richly deserved. I LOVE IT!
