Nice place, very friendly accommodating staff, but the food is over priced. Park and ride is just behind so is very handy for Canterbury.

Fantastic. Great food. Our waiter Lee (working every Tuesday for the foreseeable future)was great. Knew the menu inside out and was able to make great recommendations. Absolutely worth the visit. Exceptional service and value for money.
