SquareMeal Review of The Goods Shed

Silver Award

It was an inspired idea: take over a striking, yet neglected, listed Victorian railway shed and turn it into the country’s first full-time farmer’s market; add an in-house restaurant driven by Kentish produce from the stall-holders themselves, keep it simple, and hey-presto, you have a sure-fire winner. That was back in 2002, and since then The Goods Shed has improved and expanded by leaps and bounds, although the space is as dramatic as ever with its exposed brickwork and massive windows soaring up to exposed rafters. For lunch and dinner, expect a roster of ingredient-led seasonal dishes ranging from fish stew with mussels and rouille or rolled shoulder of lamb with Jerusalem artichoke purée and crisps to steamed hake with wilted chard, croquettes and alioli, guinea fowl with lentils, spinach and black pudding or “the best pork belly I’ve ever tasted”. For afters, consider vanilla and goats’ curd cheesecake with Cointreau oranges. Drinks are out of the same mould, and The Goods Shed is also open for breakfast – a boon for commuters en route to the nearby station.

My wife and I have visited this place several times. An observation is that where they make bread nearly all the staff smoke and do not appear to wash their hands after having a smoke..and then serving customers. The restaurant staff, we have noticed are not as friendly as one one would expect, all very serious and tense… The food whilst very tasty certainly was not value for money…for somewhere that is rated as being in the top ten of Kent, the vegetarian options, welll there was no choice, the attitude was more, get what you are given or lump it… so one had no choice but to have the vegetarian platter…We would not return to this place…

My best treat when visiting the UK from Sorrento Italy where I live is to come to the Goods Shed it is for me JUST how a lovely lunch should be..the food is amazing and the girls that they employ to serve at table are charming…living where I do one becomes a terrible snob about food…we have some really good places to eat where I come from like L'Antica Trattoria in Sorrento…just have a look at their web site…so I am not a one to throw praise around too easily…so roll on the next visit to Canterbury and a revel in the delicious unpretentious food offered by the Goods Shed.Happy Christmas to all.
