  • The Goods Shed is a permanent farmers market with food stalls and a restaurant. The food here is generally excellent, and the restaurant has brilliant dishes based on local ingredients. There is always a lively and friendly atmosphere here.
  • Love this place went back within a couple of days, all locally produced products, indoor farmers market. Real Ale, nice open kitchen, inventive menu cannot recommend highly enough
  • We have just had a lovely evening here.The food was excellent. Cheese board and port very good .would come again if we were in the area .
  • Fresh local food, amazing sandwiches. Such a shame I had a train to take, I would have spend all my money there.
  • Great spot, though overcrowded and poorly organized. Should turn the parking lot into an outdoor seating area so that more people could enjoy the space.

Where to stay in Canterbury

To explore Canterbury at your own pace, book your rooms at a family-run hotel in the heart of this historical city. Staying in this area keeps you close to all of the city's main historical sites, as well as its major shopping center. Family-run hotels offer traditional values, warm hospitality, and fully-licensed bars and restaurants, all at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. For an equally comfortable and affordable stay, consider one of many centrally located guesthouses, which feature elegant rooms and covered courtyards.
