Called in for lunch last week to find it "Ceased trading on 30th June 2017" Such a shame, yet another pub/restaurant close to Canterbury that has closed down.

This was an excellent meal of fine quality and great value for money. I was with 25 other people who all enjoyed the great food and very friendly service. I would highly recommend this typical old English pub if you are in the area.
