Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Stopped by after just passing with friends and so glad we did was a nice atmosphere for a Monday afternoon. Great music. Great drinks. Great magic done by Kacy.

    would recommend and will be coming back for sure 👍

    Had a great night! Lovely landlord, enjoyed playing card quiz and getting info on local area. (Top tips on Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate). What a sweetie. Great beer, great choices, cosy and quaint; we searched for pubs in Canterbury and by far the best choices and the most welcoming.

    Authentic local pub with excellent beer and a great little beer garden. Complete with eccentric but amiable landlord!

    Called in for lunch, really good choice of menu, had a longer than we thought waitfor food but when it arrived it was certainly worth it, the baguettes in our sandwiches stayed hot, I had chicken and bacon, and my friend had the mushroom and vegan cheese baguette, the atmosphere felt very relaxed and welcoming, highly recommend you try it

    Nice slightly quirky little bar. Good ale & gin selection. Slightly lacking in atmosphere but it was a Sunday afternoon. Helpful staff.

    Great little boozer just by the cathedral
    Staff were very welcoming to me, my wife (and our dog) nothing was too much trouble
    I had the fish and chips that was excellent better than the butter market next door
    Only downside is they don’t stock fosters so I had a few Morreti’s that did the trick
    I can’t wait to return to watch some live music one weekend

    I stopped in for a drink. It’s very cool looking both inside and outside. The people were very nice. Service was fast and I was on my way. Pretty nice.

    Welcoming landlord. Very clean room, nice linen, fluffy towels, good shower.
    Air conditioning provided very quiet. Tea and coffee, kettle provided. Unfortunately no breakfast. We were looking forward to dinner at the pub on Saturday, but no food being served. However, found a lovely Italian restaurant a 5 minute walk away across the roundabout.

    Walk into Canterbury takes about 10 minutes.

    It was great to be able to park our car at the pub.

    On the tour of Canterbury pubs was Thomas Becket, hidden off from the bust main road, great inside a bit similar to the coach and horses pub in Soho, board games on the side which is always a bonus on a tour of pubs, cider was good and the menu looked great. Fridays they do a cheap prosecco night.
    Would recommend this place.

    We had heard it was a good place for cocktails and it is amazing for them! A little pricey but I think it's worth it. The room itself is so different and quirky, it's lovely! All the staff are so polite and happy. It's definitely our preferred place to drink now when we go out in Canterbury or want to go out in general, we would prefer to go here. Recommend definitely

    Well run and good fun axe throwing
    Boom Battle Bar is... VERY LOUD
    So be aware that you will have to shout as the music and nature of the place seems to amplify the noise (perhaps it's to add to the ambience)
    We opted for axe throwing, which was fun, 1 hour and a large group was the format we went with, having at least 10-15 throws each
    Suggest 1 lane having a max of 6 people so you get enough visits to the throwing area
    Parking nearby in Sainsburys is always the best as it's free for 2 hours
    Overall the venue was clean (not sure about the toilets though...) and well run, staff are keen to help but it was very loud

    I live locally, and since Sam took this pub over it has gone from strength to strength. A lovely atmosphere, great beer, a lovely garden, friendly staff and a well thought out interior.

    This pub was friendly and very clean, constantly cleaning the tables during this awkward time.
    Hubby said they had good ale. Not a flashy place, just relaxed and friendly local. Thanks for a good first night in Canterbury.

    Lovely pub! Will definitely be returning very soon. Staff very kind and welcoming. Dealing with difficult costumers accordingly and keeping it safe during Covid. Elise was a perfect waitress dealing with all our needs and making our stay easy and relaxed, whilst keeping the drinks topped up.
