Had a lovely lunch here. Staff coped very well even though it was busy because it was a graduation day for the University. The beer drinkers with us loved the extensive beer menu and the food was excellent.

There is a lovely terrace upstairs for dinner or drinks. They are happy for you just to come for a drink. We did the all you can eat chicken and rib night and loved it! We keep coming back

8 of us visited for a quick lunch while visiting Canterbury. We had a variety of main meals, all of which were very good indeed. Service was friendly and very efficient. Attentive without being overbearing. Price was fine and the coffee excellent.
