Called into the place on the naive basis that a place calling itself ‘The Old Brewery’ claiming to sell local produce and ales would actually have local ales. Nope nothing of that description. Very empty and still empty when passed by a couple of hours...More

We had lunch at the Old Brewery today. Service was excellent. The haddock and chips were delicious but took a very long time to be cooked. Apparently food was being prepared in the aBode hotel kitchen and not in the Old Brewery. The craft ale...More

I visited this pub quite some time ago for lunch with my mother, mainly as it seemed to be just off the high street and we had, by this point, tried everything else nearby that offers the Gourmet Society discount. The pub is quite large,...More

I've eaten here many times over the years when visiting Canterbury on the weekend. It's always been clear that it was more of an evening / sports bar location, but they still had a good lunch menu, a good selection of guest beers and a...More

Booked online for dinner at 5.30pm, we've eaten here before and it's been good pub food. But upon arrival the guy seemed to have no knowledge of our booking, which was worrying. The place was completely empty, and they've changed the menu. Plus their kitchen...More

My overall rating for the Old Brewery would have been higher but for the glaring lack of a key ingredient in a dish. Members of my party were,however, generally satisfied with the burgers served. Service was friendly and efficient, and the beers on offer very...More

Let me start with the positive..... The waiting staff were excellent... Unfortunately they were monumentally let down by the kitchen.... Imagine putting honda c90 engine in a ddge charger and you get the idea. Lovely venue. As I said, great staff, and I know this...More

Cool and uncluttered, The Old Brewery Tavern is a purpose-built modern British pub and restaurant in the historic city of Canterbury. Part of the chic ABode Hotels group, this is an upbeat contemporary space, split between a bright decked courtyard with sliding glass windows, a cosy lounge and a more traditional central dining area with chunky wooden tables and chairs. Honest, robust modern British cooking results in satisfying dishes featuring freshly caught fish and meats such as Sussex beef and Romney Marsh lamb, accompanied by local and regional cask ales and an extensive wine list.
