Quex have opened their most recent venture on the north end of Canterbury high street. Located near the City wall in the old pub/bar premises that has, in most recent years, housed a number of different ventures, the re-purposed building fits the rustic and local brand of Quex perfectly.
Quex has that effect on me - their sandwiches are enormous as well!
The others also ordered big portions as they didn't want to have to cook that night. John went for the chicken and vegetable pie with a beautifully flaky puff pastry lid which came with fluffy mashed potatoes and steamed green vegetables and Ellie had one of their sandwiches.
Quex are renowned for their breakfasts, which are enormous (just look at the one that Steve once got his hands on), and also do student nights on Monday's. On Thursdays they have steak night and if you fancy something a bit lighter, on Friday's they put extra fish on. There is a traditional Sunday roast and the menu changes on a regular basis. There is even a micro-pub in the cafe which specialises in a varied selection from the local micro breweries, including bitters, Meade, fruit gins and local vodka's, something which will excite quite a few of my friends!
Tastecard, Quex also do 2 for 1 across all courses. I need to get my hands on one!
I really, really love this place. It's unpretentious, amazing quality and good value. What more could you ask for? If you have graduation coming up I would strongly recommend you consider bringing your nearest and dearest here for a pre or post-congregations meal, and possibly some Dutch courage if you are nervous about walking up to get your certificate!
