Really nice, well maintained and clean pub. They have a lovely court yard garden. The staff are very friendly. The chicken wings and loaded fries were great, would definitely recommend a visit. Also really good music playlist.

Day shopping visit to Canterbury. We wanted a spot of lunch just away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. Came across the Bishops finger near the Westgate tower. The atmosphere was great, Elle was extremely helpful and friendly. Went for the burgers as...looked a little different to the normal every day . We was not disappointed, They were lovely and would definitely recommend. Complements to the chief Neil. Will be back soon, with some friends.More
