Our reservation was cancelled without telling us it was only when I went to preorder food that I was told we would no longer have a table at the venue. Our money was refunded but it was an inconvenience especially as I wasn't told. If I hadn't asked about food choices we may have turned up and not been recognised. Poor customer service.
Held a private party in the guard room for my wife's birthday! was a fantastic venue and service from all the staff was first class
Booked this venue to celebrate a milestone birthday and the manager and staff could not have been more helpful. They made everything so easy and the venue itself has a great atmosphere and is fantastic value for money. Had over 50 guests and all of them said how much they loved the venue and what a great party it was. I want to thank all the team at One Pound Lane.
James was a fantastic host, really knows his stuff and handled a rowdy group of hens so professionally
The place was so agradable. Staff super nice! Dan since the begin helped a lot with my booking and even on the day of my gatering. Drinks were super!! I more than reccommend this place. Thank you

Loved the food, lighting and ambience in the restaurant.... hoping to come back soon .... nice alternative to the high street chains we have so much of in Canterbury .....
I had a great birthday and can't wait to return.
Really very nice the food was amazing ten out ten for the chef would definitely go there again
My family recently attended The Parade Room to celebrate my Fathers 80th Birthday. I must admit to being a little concerned that the menu would be suitable for a gentleman of my Fathers age. However I am very pleased to say that every person in the party of 10 thought the food was amazing! The service was exemplary, and a special mention should be given to our host Shaun. He made our evening even more special with his efficient, attentive service and his personable, professional manner. And of course, our own private dining experience in one of your 'cells'. This was the reason we chose The Parade Room and it certainly didn't disappoint. All in all, you have some very happy customers and we WILL be returning!!
Fabulous. Friendly and helpful waiting staff. Glorious food. Only bit of advice would be - please don’t announce the amount on the bill to the whole table, especially if it’s a birthday treat!
Excellent meal, the best I have anywhere for a long time. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We will definitely come again and recommend it to our friends, Well done
Fantastic staff thank you for your help organising, and great food!
No dairy and soya options for desert and very limited on mains. Although my friends enjoyed the mains mine was not great the lentils had very little flavour and the monkfish was a bit tough. Portions were small and the deserts were too ambitious too many flavours. Don't think I would eat here again although service was very good and the restaurant was amazing
Impressive, attentive and very knowledgable service from an enthusiastic Shaun who was serving us. Good food with some surprising touches. I was so grateful and impressed with the chef who on knowing in advance about my medical issues prepared me a delicious meal to suit my specific dietary needs. This has never been offered to me before and I felt very touched by such attention to customer service. I would definitely return to eat at The Parade Room again.
Cold in restaurant and soup could have been hotter but otherwise good food and service excellent
Perfect in every way. Great quality food with very reasonable pricing. Superb service with amazing decor and ambience.
Great food! Have been meaning to try the Parade room out for some time. Finally, decided to visit for Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed. Great food, interesting menu, well prepared and very tasty. The decor of the parade room gave a great feel and was interesting enough to keep the kid's interest alive. Service was good, although didn't receive our coffees although this didn't really detract from an otherwise excellent experience and meal out.
Great meal good value. A little slow with drinks service.
Lovely meal. Good service from very welcoming and friendly staff. Thanks.
Food was just absolutely amazing. Complements to the chef!! Service was spot on too. Definitely going back.
Such a lovely atmosphere for a meal, the staff were attentive and the food was divine..only shock was the service charge already added on
