...and that was just the starter. I opted for good old fish and chips as my main course, and regretted nothing.This restaurant is beautifully located, very good value for money, and friendly to boot. I'll be back...

I was surprised to see some negative reviews for Chapman's. we have always found it to be really good, the service is excellent and the fish is really fresh. Tonight we had several oysters then a rondue and the fish could not have been fresher, it was superb. The waitress is a credit to Chapman's and we were well looked after by her, we had a very good rapport. Looking forward to our next visit.

I was visiting my daughter in Canterbury and wanted to treat us both to a special meal. I spotted a Groupon voucher for a fish rondue at Chapman's. Since we both enjoy fish, l decided to give it a go. The restaurant was very busy over the period l was visiting but the communication was excellent and we were accommodated. On arrival we found a great atmosphere, and the service was really good - very relaxed - no pressure, but there when needed. My daughter and l loved the rondue - lots of different fish to be cooked by ourselves at the table on a hotplate. The meal is completed with a very good bowl of salad, a selection of vegetables to cook, and a bowl of french fries each. It wasn't just a meal - it was a culinary experience - at least it was for us!! We didn't need puddings - but having seen some served, we could not resist. All l can say is that they were well worth the calories!! I recommend Chapman's highly and look forward to returning next time l visit.

I visited Chapmans on a visit to Canterbury because I was looking for a quality seafood restaurant. Unfortunately I found an average fish and chip shop at restaurant prices.
The range of beer was limited the quality of the seafood was average at best.
Had better at a pub and shortly before we were served the establishment filled with the smell of old over used fat so it was no surprise when the chips looked and tasted like they had been cooked in fat that was passed its reasonable use.
Tag said the waiting Staff we’re attentive and welcoming.
But will not going back
