Situated just a stone's throw from the Westgate Towers, nestled at the heart of St Dunstan, Chapman’s of Canterbury has been paying tribute to the region’s finest seafood for over three decades. Taking inspiration from locally sourced ingredients, the sharing-plate menu is innovative, yet unfussy, authentic dishes with a modern twist.

Renowned for its’ quality, Chapman’s has been serving up superior quality fish from the day it opened its doors. Previously owned by independent fish wholesaler Chapman’s, 2020 saw the restaurant take a new and exciting path. Now under the stewardship of executive chef Byron Hayter, Chapman’s of Canterbury continues to offer Kent’s finest locally sourced produce. Byron’s wealth of experience in the luxury fine dining industry is reflected in his work, the menu is simple, yet exciting and is a true celebration of the ingredients.

"The tide is turning favourably for this exciting new era at Chapman’s, and I for one can’t wait to return!"
