We went there on 29/10/2020 for dinner , The location is magnificent, also the food was quite good,we had deep fried calamari to share , roast beef and lamb as main course. Although the food was really tasted , the service unfortunately is really bad....Both waiter need to welcome customer not let us feeling like disturbing. Good value for money.More

My wife and I had a superb meal in this lovely, characterful restaurant. The nachos to start with where delicious and then our main courses - Steak and Kidney pie and chicken in a Yorkshire Pudding - were equally good. The service was very good...too. A 'must go to' eatery for anybody visiting this lovely, really interesting city!More

We chanced upon this pub while looking for a some hot lunch on a rainy saturday eve. Oh, this was a place of beauty! Everything about this pub is cozy, charming and ancient. Situated along the river in an ancient building, this is the perfect...place to catch-up with friends over some great food and drinks. We tried - fish and chips - one of the best I've ever had, their yorkshire pudding - delicious, shepherd's pie - freshly baked. We finished off with their bread pudding with custard which was outstanding. A must visit when in the beautiful town of Canterbury!More

The Weavers was so old and quirky that we just had to visit whilst spending a lovely weekend in Canterbury. We went for a light lunch even though the Sunday dinners looked lovely and we had their baguettes which were delicious - great atmosphere and...the staff couldn't be nicer - would definitely go backMore

We stumbled on this lovely restaurant whilst on a visit to Canterbury. It was busy but the staff member was very attentive and quickly found a table for the four of us. The restaurant is very cosy, full of character with lots of different artefacts...to look at. Food was great. My wife’s roast beef was really good as was the sausages and mash. Would definitely recommend.More

I visited last Saturday as me and a friend had a late night river tour booked. We didn't expect anything other than a standard pub meal. How wrong were we? Service was friendly, food was fantastic, and the ambience within the environment was super. I...would highly recommend the Old Weavers to anyone, but have to advise its worth booking ahead!More

Traditional English restaurant in the heart of Canterbury. I was pleased to find roast on a Saturday! We had chicken and beef roast, served with lots of gravy, Yorkshire pudding and roast veg - the chicken roast was a 10/10, tender and flavourful. The beef...roast was good, huge portion of meat - I’d give that a 7.5/10 as it wasn’t as tender as expected. Service was great, even thought the restaurant was quite busy and we didn’t book a table beforehand the manager was kind enough to find us a table and serve us straight away. Good covid measures too, staff was wearing masks at all time, enforcing everyone else to wear masks until they sat at the table, took everyone’s details before entering the dining area and tables were well distanced between each other! I would recommend pay a visitMore

5 star service! I came here with a friend after a good day of shopping. My friend had brie fritters with a request of cranberry sauce which the kitchen were happy to do. For our mains, we had roast chicken and I cannot fault this....This was absolutely delicious, potatoes crispy, delicious yorkie puds and veg. The chicken was also melt in your mouth. For dessert, I had the crumble which is my favourite. My friend had the banoffee pie. 100% will come here more often, staff are super friendly and happy to accommodate your requests. The vibe in there is also homely and welcoming. Please pass on my comments to the whole team, you’re one of the best in Canterbury.More

What a waste of £65... My partner and I were taken in by the beautiful exterior having walked past a couple of times on our weekend trip to Canterbury. We decided to book in to ensure a table during covid. We wish we had been...turned away. For starts we shared a two person mezze, I’m not sure how a chef can ruin six different dishes to the level that was managed. The calamari could be compared to a long forgotten hula hoop from the back of the sofa that has been deep fried leaving me....hopping mad The falafel was falafawful, so dry it reminded of a nun I once met met. No mint sauce and piece of dry bread, the local supermarket had more to offer. Avoid the mezze it’s a mess! Our mains! The duck must have been still swimming, before being hit by a tsunami of marmalade jam and thrown on a dish leaving it sweeter than Miley Cyrus before she left Nickelodeon. And now the biggest insult of this monstrosity of an evening. The lamb shank, I have never had a plum gravy or gravy for that matter that had less taste, more jelly and something as far away from plum. All in all a bland experience severely overpriced in a beautiful venue, such a shameMore
