Wonderful meal

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... read 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!

I didn't know it was capable of offering such poor service, respect and consideration. Had I known, I would never have dragged my family and friends who travelled great distances (I.e from Germany) to be there. Upon arrival, we were rudely approached, in a rushed fashion. This would have been fine had it only have been on arrival, but whilst... More

Staying in Canterbury have visited this lovely little local several times for beers, pies and good cheer. All were excellent. A lovely quaint pub that is friendly and serves delicious pies. Will I go there again - most certainly just a pity it isn't within walking distance from Australia!

We found this pub round the corner from where we were staying in Canterbury. We wandered and were warmly met by friendly people. We enjoyed a couple of excellent beers and checked out the menu. We came back for lunch the next day and had the Steak and Ale Pie with another couple of pints. Just great. The atmosphere is... More
