When we were in Canterbury today we thought we might not find anywhere to have lunch inside where we could take the family greyhound. But at last, across a pretty little green in a small lane, our haven: The White Hart! What a friendly welcome, wonderful calm - no muzak or TV, just quiet talk. Landlady treated us like regulars...

Out of the way over near the castle, this was a quick pit-stop on a very hot day, also away from the masses in the city centre. Whilst we just had drinks and light-bites, we found them just fine, with my Black Pepper Squid excellent. We sat in the garden on our own, which is ready for some TLC, but... More

Having made a massive mistake of poor planning, we were forced to look for an alternative venue for 5 of us (and our dog) for Sunday Roast. We stumbled on this location via Tripadvisor and put in a call. The landlord was more than happy to take the booking and we descended within 30 minutes. Set back on a quiet... More

Called in quite late in the evening in the hope of finding some good food, was certainly not disappointed. Ordered some starter plates, bread and olives, salt and pepper squid, whitebait, Nachos.All were delicious and the portions were far from starter size! Sat outside in a fantastic garden area, the landlord and his partner made us very welcome and were... More

My friend and I enjoyed sitting in the garden at the back of the pub. Plenty of seating and places in shade or direct sun. We had nachos and chilli which was an enormous plateful and too much to eat, but sour cream, guacamole and cheese were plentiful. A very good price too! (Photo attached)

Set in a quiet back street, this lovely pub had a great beer garden and a pub with character. The food was good old typical British pub grub and both the fish and chips and the steak and chips were good portions and tasty. The beer was great as well. We were made very welcome with our 2 dogs and... More

I'm not going to lie, this was literally our only option as desperately needed some dinner before heading off to London. The station was just around the corner so it was perfect. We're pretty happy we found it really. We ordered some wine at the bar and looked at the menus. I thought the selection of food was a little... More

Used to enjoy popping to the White Hart but know it is outside my budget. Expensive even by Canterbury standards and just hasn't the same feel it did five or 10 years ago. Sad and I hope things turn around in time.

We visited on a Tuesday evening, was struggling to find somewhere to eat, seems people only eat of a lunchtime in Canterbury, but we came across this pub by chance and so thought it was here or go hungry. How fortunate for us, it happened to be quiz night and we were told they get fully booked but were happy... More
