“Outstanding lunch (good new menu too) & friendly staff”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

I have just got back from an excellent lunch at The Parrot. I have worked around the corner from The Parrot for 7 years and have enjoyed it on and off, but the new menu they have just launched is delicious (and they also have a fantastic and accommodating head chef, who basically said "anything is possible; you want it, I can make it" to a friend with a gluten allergy). One warning: the portions are huge and you may have to be rolled out the door when you leave. Everyone enjoyed their food today and we will certainly be back again to try more from this menu. In term's of service and friendliness (from the bar staff to the kitchen staff who came out personally to see us), The Parrot were on top form today.

“Attractive pub, poor food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Went late afternoon on New Year's day with my partner. An attractive pub with a nice wood burning stove and some decent beers. We both ordered a classic burger. The fries were fine, and the coleslaw good, but the burger was not good at all. Very dry and served almost cold. I'd go back for a pint but not to eat.

“Worth finding”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

takes a bit of finding as out of the main Canterbury thorough fare but well worth it. One of the oldest buildings in Canterbury - dating from 1370 - well worth a visit with an excellent selection of wine and good draft beers and food pretty good.
