Deesons British Restaurant

25-27 Sun Street, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2HX
Find this good restaurant, specialising in British dishes, close to the cathedral entrance.

Expect solid wooden tables, crisp white napery, nicely candle lit during the evening - and an atmosphere perhaps more akin to the 1950's.

Starters such as 'Colchester Oysters with Shallot Vinegar'; 'Duch Heart Terrine with Fig Chutney & Toast'; 'Wild Mushroom, Chestnut, Spinach & Dunsyre Blue Cheese Tartlet' and 'Ox Tongue with Onion Purée & Roasted Beetroot' set the style on a winter menu.

To be followed by 'Roast Free-Range Chicken Breast with Smoked Chicken & Ham Pie, Broccoli & Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes'; 'Pan-Roasted Breast of Romney Marsh Free Range Duck with Pan Haggerty, Curly Kale, Shallot Tart & Slow-Cooked Duck Leg'; 'Pan-Fried Monkfish Tail with Buttered Potato, Spinach, Bacon & Wild Mushroms' and 'Vegetable Wellington with Sweet Potato, Celeriac, Jerusalem Artichoke & Chestnut Mousse with Cauliflower Purée & Winter Greens' listed among the mains.

If you still have room you might be tempted by 'Upside Down Apple Cake & Clotted Cream'; 'Steamed Golden Syrup Pudding with Vanilla Custard' or 'Trio of Chocolate - Dark Mousse, White Chocolate Cream Cheese & Chocolate Chip Cookie'.

Lunch brings lighter fare ranging from sandwiches &light salads such as 'Walnut, Pear & Rosary Cheese' through 'Beer Battered Fish & Chips' and their popular pie of the day - such as 'Free-Range Chicken, Ham & Tarragon with New Potatoes & Curly Kale'.

Service is both professional & friendly.
