“Nothing but perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

When you are told how good something is your expectations are high but in this case they were surpassed. The whole experience was pure joy.
A menu which covered most diets was varied but not overcrowded and the service was excellent. No hovering but there like a shot if you needed them.
My food was faultless, beautifully presented and full of taste. I am not averse to making a complaint but in this case couldn't,t find anything to fault.
This may work against me for future bookings but I advise everyone to give it a try for a really special night out.

“will be back again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

although the restaurant was very busy we were made to feel like the only customers. very good service, nice (and unusual) selection of food, which was well cooked and very tasty. The restaurant is fairly noisy (because its busy) but it is not a problem, we had enough space and felt private at our table. All of use (a range of ages) enjoyed the meal and I feel certain we will return.

“Delicious food, impeccable service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

My boyfriend and I went to Deeson's restaurant recently as my birthday treat. Being students in Canterbury, we ordered the pre-theatre three course set-menu which was delicious and even though the set-menu was considerably cheaper than ordering separate dishes from the menu, I'm sure was still just as good.
Our waiter was extremely polite, always topping up our drinks and making a joke or two throughout the evening. The atmosphere was sophisticated, relaxed and lovely if you want to treat yourself.
I'm particularly impressed by the fact that all of their ingredients/produce are locally sourced, so you know that Deeson's is benefiting the local community! The traditional (and fantastic!) English food is often a rarity nowadays, this would also be perfect if you have guests visiting in Canterbury and you want to give them a real 'taste' of the city and the local area.

“It was so good - I was tempted not to spread the word!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

The food here is British...but British at its absolute best. Mr D became positively excited as he perused the varied exciting offerings and reverently silent when the beautifully presented food arrived at the table. And it was magnificent. Every element of each dish has been carefully thought through and the presentation is designed so that you can taste everything. Mr D had the seafood platter and the pork platter; he pronounced both excellent and even offered me a taste to prove his point - a rare honour, I might tell you! My friend and I shared tastes of everything and so I can say that the pork platter starter, the beef and the cheese soufflé are fantastic. I reserve my highest praise for the Queen of Puddings dessert. I am not a fan of puddings but it was AMAZING. The service was excellent - unobtrusive but attentive and friendly. We will be back, if we can get a table!
