“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

My husband and I booked a table for our wedding anniversary hopingg for a special meal. We were not diappointed. The whole evening was a joy. A lovely warm welcome was followed by an excellent menu for both food and wine. The service was great - professional, but not stuffy or intrusive. The food was just gorgeous - especially the seafood platter starter and the beef with beetroot. A very pleasant surprise was the pianist which created a very good atmosphere. The whole meal was wonderful and we had a great evening. Very good value for the high standard of food and wine. Very highly recommended.

“Serious Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

On our most recent trip we were in Paris for a week then took the ferry to Canterbury, spent a few days traveling the country side and finally onto London. Hands down Deeson's was the best food we had the entire 2 weeks. The food was perfect. We were terribly under dressed for the place but did not feel uncomfortable. The staff was VERY friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable about the food. Wish I lived here so I could go back again and again.

“super food, good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

very good menu with lots of interesting items to choose from. Quality of food was really good, with elegant and delicate flavours - very well cooked, well presented. Good service. Rather pleasant to sit outside at a table on the pavement - might sound a bit grim, but the street is lively without being noisy or intrusive.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Canterbury has a lot to offer so it is difficult to chose a restaurant, but hopefully this will ease your decision. It is a great restaurant in a good location, the food is well prepared and served hot and the staff is attentive.
We had a lovely evening and would certainly eat here again.

“a bit hit and miss”

Been here a few times. Best meal was during winter when menu based on seasonal root veg and meat. Great portions. However, went recently and portions and quality of food was not that good and service was poor. Menu limited at times
