“Located in Canterbury’s permanent farmers’ market, so it’s really buzzing at lunchtimes”, this informal spot has had a strong local following across two decades. “It’s not elaborate food – the ingredients are sourced from the market and left to speak for themselves” – but it’s backed up by a “good-value wine list”. A word of warning for winter: “the food’s good, but you’re sitting in a converted goods shed and boy it’s cold. We kept our coats on for the whole meal”.

“Fantastic for breakfast, coffee, lunch, and to stock up on some foodie treats” – this “delightful informal operation (next door to Canterbury West station) overlooks the bustling farmers’ market below, where most of the food is sourced”, and has been a focus for local foodies since 2002. “The produce is good and the dishes are left to speak for themselves”. “Every town should should have somewhere like this”.

“Perched above the farmer’s market which provides the ingredients” – an “attractive” outfit, which is especially “buzzing at lunch”, and whose “ever-changing menu offers tremendous value”. NB roving gastronauts – it’s “only two minutes to the station for metropolitan foodies exploring life away from London!”

“Eating over the permanent farmer’s market creates a special ambience” at this foodie favourite, near Canterbury West station. “Sourcing is from the stalls”“good quality ingredients plainly cooked and in fairly hearty portions” – and “if you’re in Canterbury of a Saturday, brunch is a must, and you can also buy most of your weekend shopping!”
