“All you can eat chicken and ribs night”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

The night was a bit of a let down. Poorly thought out method of dining. They run out of chicken - which was probably a cause for complaint. Drinks very expensive, poor service. Wouldn't go again.

“Early Supper at La Trappiste”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We had an early supper - great food, of course an extensive selection of beers and I was really pleased with the service.

John looked after us well, was knowledgeable and happy to recommend beer based on what we thought we wanted.

Altogether Good!

“Belgium roulette it seems”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

How odd, I've never seen so many different opinions on Tripadvisor about one restaurant. It seems to us, you have you have about a 35% chance of a great visit. Lucky for us we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and received a warm welcome, good service throughout, amazing food, quality drinks and had a very nice time. We only knocked a point of for the condition of the place, which made the prices a touch rich for the surroundings. Only other thing that was a bit off was the price of the beers, as nice as they are, this place is charging around a pound a bottle too much which takes away any real urge to revisit, which is a shame. There are so many places to eat in Canterbury you would think places like this would try much harder to win over very customer rather than leaving it to chance.

“Good food. Awful service”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

The food is fresh and the quality is great. They have a huge variety of Belgium beer. Albeit expensive. What spoilt our overall experience was the poor service. To boot my friend got a glass of wine spilt over him. Not a great impression!

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I like this restaurant, they do afternnon tea, all sorts of cakes and a huge menu too for lunch and evening. I've been twice, the 1st time I had steak (which was lovely but a little expensive) and the second for chips (gorgeous!).
The main waiter guy is hilarious too.
