After waiting for 40 Min. I have almost given up because the assistent-cook already had to go twice (!) to the supermarket to get the ingredients his boss forgot to buy (at 12.30 am!!) and the other assistent has already brought four coffees (!!!) for his co-workers. The food was okay but could have been premade and just heaten up.
When I asked them what has took them so long, the polite answer was: "If you want to wait less then 40 Min., go and eat somewhere else!"

The Refectory is well known for it's amazing breakfasts, but now it's open in the evening! The food was outstanding, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. The waitresses were helpful and informative. The wine list is great and very reasonably priced. We went there for our wedding Anniversary and had such a brilliant night. I can honestly say we have never had a better meal out and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We have been using the Refectory for a long while for breakfast and Brunch. The veggie breakfast is the best I have eaten anyhere in the world. Dan and Sophie have now started to open in the evenings at weekends much to our delight. Whilst all the food is exceptional the vegetarian food is unbelievably good. Coupled with friendly and personal service there is, for us, no where else to go in Canterbury.
