“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars I am a fully confessed carnivore, and the vegetarian food they served up here was amazing! We came for lunch on a Wednesday and chose the two lunches for £10 deal from which you selected two main courses from a limited menu - the dishes were varied and excellent value.

Service was friendly and efficient. The soft drinks menu is good with Feintmens featuring through-out. From what I saw, the beer list looks good with some local bottles ales.

“Delicious delicious delicious!”
5 of 5 stars The hutch is a vegetarian restaurant close to the cathedral in Canterbury. Although I am not a vegetarian myself I was in no way disappointed by the absence of meat. The food was fantastic and very filling, I had a vegetable tempura to start followed by one of the specials for main; a potato cake with flat mushroom, avocado mousse, baby leaf salad and tomato salsa. All of the flavours of the food feel like they are carefully thought out to best complement one another. Although I was only on a one off visit to Canterbury, I hope that if I return in the future I will be able to come back to this lovely little restaurant

“Excellent food; shall be going back”
5 of 5 stars 

We drove over specially to try out this new vegetarian restaurant and were delighted we did. What beautiful tasty food! I can't wait to go again. I'm what I'd call a semi-veggie; my husband is not vegetarian at all. We both LOVED the food. The chilled beetroot and lemon soup was fab; the haggis was full of delicious subtle flavours; the apple dessert light, beautifully presented, and again, full of delightful different flavours. We were both well satisfied with the quantity, and couldn't eat another thing! Our French waitress was welcoming, friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable.

The restaurant is simple and basic in presentation - more bistro than plush; hard tiled floor with simple bare wooden tables and chairs. So if you're hoping for something grand, then this won't be it - but the food is excellent. What a gem of a place!!

What Our Guests Say About Us

Had a great evening at your restaurant recently, with a group
of friends. You are certainly living up to your philosophy of providing
excellent food and service, and I would add, at a very reasonable price.
With nibbles, starters, a main and desserts, with drinks, this was just
under £25 per person. Congratulations. We will be back.....soon!

Thank you so much for a delicious light Sunday lunch. I
especially recommend the Espresso and Hazelnut Cake, the only fault I
had to find with it was that I wanted more! Heaven on a plate

for years, about the lack of a vegetarian restaurant in Canterbury - so

we're looking forward to enjoying your dishes without the smell of meat

wafting over from the next table!"
