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

A cold, wet night in Canterbury found us looking for someone local and this Shepherd Neame pub which was full when we passed by at lunchtime fitted the bill. Ensconced at a round table near a front window we settled down with a drop of the local brew and an uncomplicated menu (the 'specials' boards make the everyday meals slightly... More

The welcome and service here best described as indifferent so as not to give offence, Combined with a premium price guarantees returning unlikely in the near or distant future

This pub has a really cosy atmosphere during the day and is especially nice on Sunday lunchtimes. They serve a wide variety of food like pies, and do a really nice Sunday roast. The beer garden is spacious and really nice when there is warm weather. The staff are really nice and make you feel really comfortable in this great... More

Went here for a big family lunch, and was made to feel so at home. We were warned when ordering that the pies would take 30 minutes, which was fine becuase we were chatting, and when they arrived we could not have been more happy! Huge portions, all homemade and absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic, and we felt very... More

I couldn't see on TA whether dogs are allowed in this pub so had to use another dog friendly website. Just to check, I called and they said yes. I arrived about 1230 and was the first customer. A pint of SA Brains' The Rev for me and space for Reggie to lie down was perfect. Whilst my wife and... More

Stayed at Castle hotel, staff recommended white Hart for a home made pie supper on a cold evening. What a delightful place,real fire...real English food. Pies are the best ever and I normally hate pies. Staff attentive, and nothing to much bother. Prices great. Closed early on Sunday nights...so get there early. Finish your meal with a lovely cheese board... More

We are staying in Canterbury for a few days and have visited the White Hart a few times as it is near to our hotel. Lovely food and friendly service. Would recommend this place, it's tucked away, quiet and run by nice people!
