The ambiance is perfect and the owner is really nice. You can find a huge selection of beers from all over the world. They have bottles from the best breweries of USA, Denmark and many english bottles very hard to find. You can find good food too in the market. There’s also english cider on tap.

I have experience only with their web page. In fact this is not webshop, you can choose from a list and write to Andrew and he sends you box. Anyway, nice selection of British, American and other beers. Communication is smooth, packaging is perfect, box would survive moon landing. prices are reasonable. I like this "web shop"
Great selection of harder to find UK beers, though prices always a little higher than elsewhere. Great help in sending my order to parents address and discount given due to order size. Good online presence too.
Great place. What a selection! I think I saw about 200 different beers in the tiniest space imaginable. The dude working there was great, he chatted to us the whole time and we discussed what we liked, and he discussed what he had. We ended up only buying 2 mixed 4-packs, as we knew we had to drink them for breakfast on coming days. But my goodness, what a breakfast some of them were. To visit Canterbury and not visit here is a sin before malt and before hop.
Really liked this place, essentially a stall in a great food market surrounded by beer enthusiasts. Selection limited by the space they had but tried some beers and walked away with a wooden crate of different ales to taste. Will be back for the ones that I liked!
A nice little corner of an artisanal food shop in Canterbury. A great selection of some tough to find bottles from small and distinguished breweries in Europe and North America. If you’re ever in the area, a must visit!
ambiance goes to website witch is not realy helpfull for mail ordering since it is a list and not a webshop(andrew told me they will change this soon) but looks nice
service is exelent since i had some isues with my order and the owner responded to my emails prety fast and when my ordered was delayed he even offered to compansate me with free beer in my next order the selection is great many rare bottles some you canot hope to drink in europe (got me a vanila burbon county) but the prices are steep all and all a good web shop for me
Great place very near the station. Tiny, but a very good selection and reasonable prices. Helpful and friendly staff. I really didn’t need to buy something for the train, but couldn’t help myself!

I was swinging by to pick up some beers as I was driving across the channel anyway and Canterbury isn’t too far away from Dover. I placed a collective order with a couple of friends from Belgium, through e-mail. Everything was ready and awaiting us. As there was some confusion with which bottles they did or didn’t have, I gave my printed list to the clergy who checked everything off as me and my friends had lunch in the restaurant in the same building. Rating for the food is btw actually for the Good Shed restaurant, but since they seem to be cooperating, it seemed stupid to add another entry. The food was delicious by the way. Afterwards the clergy and me went through the whole list again, checking off every bottle. It was quite a bit of work, but then again, they were selling a lot of beers at once. ;-) An amazing selection, one of which we in Belgium are sometimes jealous, at least the people who like some American imports. Only reason I subtracted 2 points is because of the non availability of about 10% of the stuff I ordered, especially because I waited for their updated list only 5 days before ordering and had to gather orders from a couple of friends. Despite that, some bottles were sold out anyway. Friendly staff, just in general a good place. Maybe a bit expensive, yes. But then again, England in general is pretty expensive, so there you go. Will visit again next time I cross the channel with the car.

Located in a former goods-shed close to the Canterbury railway-station, this ´market-stall ´ offers an almost incredible selection of english quality beers - in aitumn 2011 for example 21 different "Kernels". Very friendly and knowledgeable service. Worth a journey, one of the best beers shops in the U.K.…
