“Very good pub food”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We visited the Parrot for the so-called Sunday roast while on holiday in the city. The atmosphere and decoration are very nice whereas the food is exactly what you would expect from a traditional UK pub. We opted for the beef and the chicken. Both were very well cooked served with adequate portions of veges. Staff very friendly and serving time was very fast. As regards the prices, they are almost on the average of the ones encountered in other pubs in Canterbury.

“Great meal at The Parrot”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

10 of us had a great Sunday lunchtime meal at The Parrot. The venue is good...a very old pub in heart of Canterbury with tons of atmosphere - watch out for the sloping floors upstairs!

The Food was great - good choices and beautiful food. I had the Pork which was good and the vegetables were hot and plentiful. All of us had 3 great courses and the service was excellent with cheerful waitresses who looked after us very well.

We travelled from London for this meal and we were not disappointed.
Its not the cheapest pub - but worth every penny. If you are in the area drop in and see what you think - I don't think you will be disappointed.

“Drinks in the beer garden, food inside”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The pub is very beautiful, it stands to its label of "the oldest pub in Canterbury".
Very good ambience for an evening drink (or few of them).
The beer garden is nice, but it needs a bit more maintenance (cleaning of follen flowers, etc).
They have a good selection of beers (Samuel Adams is our favourite). The food is not impressive. Most of the starters are just OK, and maybe a bit too overpriced. The Bishops Mitre burger was our favourite without any doubts, but it is a real challenge for your stomach.

If going with kids better go to the beer garden

“Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Our first visit here on Friday 28th March and will definitely be going back! A beautiful quaint little place tucked away, full of charm and character. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and well presented. Could not fault the place and am looking forward to going back!

“Lovely Sunday lunch”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We eat here on a regular basis. Last Sunday we had lunch from the new menu - we both had the roast beef which was excellent. We return here time after time because not only is the food very good but the staff are excellent - welcoming, attentive but not intrusive. The pub was busy with most people eating but the service was slick, the food was hot and plentiful and there was a really good atmosphere - what not to like!!
