On a family day out with the dog it was hard finding somewhere to eat that allowed dogs, found this little pub and it was amazing! Friendly staff and attentive to our dog, the food was made fresh and was very tasty. Definitely recommend!

A very traditional pub where everything is made of wood which adds to a nice rustic feel, we dined here upon recommendation. When we came in the chef was on a small break (which we were happy to wait to make an order) , the staff at the bar were more than accommodating and have great personalities. When the chef... More

The main focus of the food here is pies. They do something called the mothership, which is your choice of pie, mash, mushy peas, melted cheese and shallots with gravy for £10. We all had different pies and no one was disappointed. Personally I had the beef and Stilton, which was very tasty. The deserts were equally good and at... More

Recommended by my parents, I joined them for a meal..good honest pub food! Extremely friendly owner who remembers my parents and their dog, attentive to or needs to. Can't believe how cheap it was for the quality of the food. Good all round pub, would recommend!

Always knew about this pub's existence but only visited for the first time recently, and how I wish I visited sooner! The White Hart is a lovely, cosy pub that has a relaxing atmosphere and great staff who are always welcoming. The beer garden is huge and well kept, there is a decent selection of drinks and just when you... More

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)
