Worth moving away from the main tourist area to find this pub, dog friendly, four adults and two Labradors made very welcome and a big fuss made of the dogs, water bowls dotted around and refreshed regularly.

A real shocker. Rude,uninterested barmaid who had an attitude,roast was tepid,yorkshire pudding was basically an omlette and no atmosphere what so ever. I used to be a regular dinner about 3/4 years ago when mat butler had it and the food and bar staff where soooo much better. Sucs a shame kids.

Many pubs find it difficult to balance the sometimes conflicting needs of drinkers and diners, but the White Hart manages to carry it off. A small bar with room to drink and relax, and reasonable seating room for those choosing to eat, make this one of the best pub/restaurants in Canterbury. Friendly staff, excellent food, and a fine selection of... More

We went for Sunday lunch, we had two roast beef and two lamb pies with chips and veg. The pie was the best I have had, and unusual being a lamb and mint pie. They were home made and tasted like it. The roast beef was also excellent. The food was served hot. The wine was also good. We had... More

The quintessential English pub. Older folks, college students, professionals all gather here and they let you bring your dog. Serves up a good burger. Warm fire on a cold night. Friendly, neighborhood pub.

Had lunch in this pub today and it was great. The service was top notch and the food some of the best I've had in a long time. The prices are very reasonable and I would particularly recommend the lamb and mint pie! If you are in Canterbury it is well worth a stop for a drink or some lunch!
