We met with old friends visiting Canterbury. The welcome was friendly and the service was excellent. The food was very good our friends remarked that they had not had such tasty food for a long time.

Tried the pub here but found the menu limited and the suggested pork belly was not worth it. Atmosphere was unexciting but staff friendly and welcoming. Expensive food as well.

I eat there with my grandson but can't remember if there is a children's menu - he is 5. I do recall they do smaller portions though and are always accommodating. Probably best to call.
