Called in here for a welcome beer after the stresses of walking in and out of shops all morning!!! Friendly welcome, comfortable seating and a lovely pint of Spitfire Gold! Beats shopping any day of the week.

Only visited for drink, did not eat there. Nice tidy pub, good beer and friendly staff. Menu looked ok and prices were equivalent on the whole to most Canterbury pubs.

After moving from Glasgow recently this is the friendliest bar we've been to. The place is cosy and the bar staff have great banter. Reminds us of home! Looking forward to a few weekend sessions in here!
