Faultless and delicious, we would definitely recommend the mussels and the halibut, the dessert of poached pear with iced goats cheese was divine. Will definitely be returning.

It's just a really nice place to be. The food is like your Mum's if She'd been a top chef. The service is smiley, cookie but always NICE. It's personal here...there's plenty of love in the food. The wine isn't a rip off. It has more heart than any gastropub. Plus it's seasonal, local produce...Kent's Best

Dinner with friends. very convenient for Canterbury West Station and so great for train. Friendly relaxed setting. Gadds beer available which is a bonus. Nice starter of venison pate, but would have been nice to have more than half a slice of toast - strange that they think you want 4 times more pate than toast! Halibut main was excellent... More

I visited on a friday lunchtime and it already seemed reasonably busy. Service was very capable, but the real star is the food, lovely and delicious. The eating area is on a raised platform area whilst the rest of the building is a farmers market with all sorts of produce from a wine merchants to a better choice of chorizo... More

Went to The Goods Shed for Saturday lunch whilst staying in Canterbury. It is off the main drag of Canterbury right next to Canterbury WEst Station - in fact the table we had overlooked the platform! We arrived early at the venue as the weather was turning and asked to see if we could be seated early and we were... More

Visited on a Saturday evening with high expectations and we were not disappointed. The building is fantastic and the local produce in the market area was all top notch. The menu was thoughtfully prepared using fresh local ingredients. The wine menu complimented the food very well. We will be back!

We didn't arrive until 21.30 after a concert in the crypt of the cathedral. We didn't leave until 23.30. The chef and the staff didn't give us he feeling they wanted us out ASAP. On the contrary. By that time we wanted to go, given a drive to Tunbridge Wells ahead of us, we felt we could have stayed another... More

We had salt beef and duck pate starters. Both served with artisan bread, well presented and a decent size. The jug of ginger beer was 'to die for' not the usual oversweetened synthetic offering! Mains were the lamb and venison. Both superbly cooked, generous portions and attractively presented. Definitely worth a visit!

Visited as a group of three for dinner. Great menu, unusual surroundings. Staff excellent and the whole evening a triumph. knocked off points as loos were not really good enough and could be improved upon. If I am in the area again I will be returning!!!!!!

Thank SharonBrighton
