Great value for money. Service was somewhat rushed.... you know it when you get your cocktails after starters and wine...

Lovely staff, nice food quite big portions.
Only one criticism, restaurant is very dated, need refreshing no atmosphere e.g lighting or some candles on the tables would make a difference.

The food was very average and took a long time to arrive. We were hoping to be in and out in an hour, but ended up staying two hours while waiting for the food to come.

We were staying in Canterbury overnight, looked the restaurant up in advance and booked, didn’t really know what to expect, but thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Food was cooked perfectly, and an excellent price for the quality of our meals.

Went for a birthday lunch. The service was good and the COVID rules were being followed. We ordered off of the specials menu, and had intended to go for three courses, but had to stop after two as the portions were large. The food was nice overall, but no crackling with the pork belly starter was disappointing.

We were seated very quickly. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I loved the pictures of the film stars on the walls. We would definitely return.

When we arrived, unfortunately our reservation through OpenTable hadn't been received. However the lady who we spoke to was very helpful and sorted out our table. Food was so tasty, and great value. Kids really enjoyed their meals too. Would definitely visit again!

OK, it was just after 'lockdown', and there is a reduced menu, and it was pretty quiet on a Monday and Tuesday. But as a regular pre-lockdown visitor to this characterful eatery I can only give five stars. The food was great, I was so happy to return. And my partner (I was always previously in Canterbury alone for work) who hadn't experienced this friendly little restaurant before, loved it too. Highly recommended.

This place is brilliant. We were in a hurry to get to the theatre yet the restaurant ensured we had our food really quickly. Thank you to the waiter - helpful, cheerful, really went out of his way to look after us.
