10 St Peter’s Street, Canterbury, CT1 2AT
At Dems Brasserie, all food is locally sourced and freshly cooked, every time, and to a standard that makes Dems the envy of the high street. Consistently favourable online reviews are something the team are very proud of and they have many loyal visitors who return, time and again. Guests are offered food at sensible prices and given all the time in the world to explore their unhurried French cuisine, so it’s little wonder Dems is considered one of Canterbury’s best-kept secrets. The extensive breakfast menu is a huge favourite with hungry visitors, not least because service continues until midday with something for everyone at surprisingly affordable prices. Everything is presented in a beautiful and charming environment, and is served up by Canterbury’s friendliest waiting staff. The lunchtime and early evening menu features fabulous specials and arguably the best burger in England – you’ll have to try it for yourself. Dems is discreetly tucked away near the Westgate Towers and opposite the famous Marlowe Theatre and offers an outstanding pre-theatre menu with a wine list to match. As evening falls, gentle candlelight and an evocative soundtrack from numerous French movies transform the atmosphere inside Dems. Romantic, subtle lighting picks out French features that will take you back to Paris in a heartbeat. Outstanding guest pianists perform most evenings and they invariably make a wonderful evening unforgettable. Dems Brasserie is affordable fi ne dining at its best.
