An interesting pub and restaurant. Staff v friendly and Foundry beers are very good. Food was disappointing. Limp salad, dried out chicken and sauces out of a bottle. Onions rings were good, though. Lower end of pub food scale.

Sought out the Foundry upon a local man's recommendation and was delighted with the food selection which were of a portion size suited to larger appetites, but more specifically the option to have 5 third pint tasters of their excellent range of beers. Perfect volume for us at lunchtime, to be able to share and taste 5 brews whilst not... More

Me and my partner came here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. It was busy, and we were told there would be a bit of a wait for the food. This is fine, but we didn't think we'd be waiting over 1hr 20 mins for a couple of burgers! When the food did finally arrive, it was horrible. The chicken... More

An interesting microbrewery, originally a Victorian foundry. Serves a wide range of microbrewed ales and porters together with a selection of high alcohol brews. I found the ‘Gold’, ‘Torpedo’ and ‘Dragon’ ales to be very good (out of a selection of 10 different brews – only in Canterbury for 3 days so didn’t have time to try the full selection!).... More

Great little find, lots of beer made on the premises. You can see the beer being made. I had the foundry burger , with blue cheese, really nice. My wife had beef brisket, again really nice, fresh veg cooked exactly right served piping hot. Bottle of reasonable Argentinian Chardonnay only £16. Check out the gin and tonic menu!

Nice little pub, great beers. Not too impressed about the food, except the pork ribs which were alright and a big portion (didn't like the burger and calamari for starter).

Hidden away in the back streets of Canterbury, the Foundry Brew Pub is a real gem! Huge choice of beers and cider. My partner had a beer followed by a cider, and i had a glass of lovely merlot. Planning to try a gin next time. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent. The chicken... More
