This restaurant is amazing. The food is to die for, the service is great. Sergio is a great host and is very attentive. The staff are super nice and I will be coming back here many times.
The Firepit is a contemporary, fine dining, sharing-plate experience. All the flavours of world cuisine meet and fuse in our indulgent, re-imagined menu. The smokey, barbecue aromas of the American west combine with the delicately spiced tastes of the far east to create ambitious dishes that excite the tastebuds and showcase the finest in global cooking.
The Firepit is a fine-dining restaurant with a diverse and contemporary sharing-menu delivering renowned dishes from all over the world. Chef John Bingley and Maitre’d Sergio Gomes help bring this exciting new epicurean concept to Canterbury. Our bold and indulgent sharing menu delivers experimental dishes which do not disappoint. Our inspiration is vibrant and relaxed with an edgy and sophisticated spirit.
After extensive round the world travel, the Firepit team have sourced flavours, methods and dishes from every corner of the globe. John Bingley, Executive chef comments:
“The Firepit represents the zenith of my career to date, I am so pleased to be working under the direction of James Tory and Johnathon Callister the directors here at Cave.
