This area of east Kent has become something of a foodie triangle with Michelin starred restaurants and a BBC Food Programme “Market of the Year” so you are spoilt for choice if you enjoy local food and discovering new places to eat.



Our award-winning breakfast is served in our farmhouse style kitchen with its Aga and we believe passionately in serving the tastiest breakfast possible.

  • Homemade granola, Jordan’s muesli, variety of cereals; Porridge made on the Aga;
  • Homemade yogurt with fruit coulis; Seasonal fruit compote.
  • Local apple juice; freshly squeezed orange juice.
  • Homemade wholemeal or white bread or rolls; American fruit muffins.
  • Homemade jams from allotment fruit, homemade marmalade, Somerset honey, Marmite.
  • Filter coffee, selection of teas.
  • Local bacon, Old English sausages from the Goods Shed Farmers Market, free range eggs, black pudding, tomatoes and mushrooms, potato cakes, or sometimes: Smoked haddock and poached eggs; Eggs Benedict; Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon; Boiled eggs; Kedgeree.

If you prefer, a continental breakfast can be served in the cottage, and on warm mornings breakfast can be eaten in our sunny courtyard garden.


Evening meals


As are so close to the city centre with over 300 places to eat and drink, we do not provide evening meals. There are 3 restaurants within 100m (Chinese, Thai and Moroccan) and we supply guests with a list of restaurant recommendations here in Canterbury and in the surrounding area.

If possible all our food is locally sourced, from the Goods Shed Farmers’ Market, local butchers, and local farms or, in season, from our allotment.
