This restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere and a very friendly staff. It's a pub and restaurant and they brew their own beer (quite nice).
Unfortunately the food was not very good (also not too bad either).
My friend ordered chicken wings as starter and spareribs as main course. The wings came with a terrible sauce, not tasty at all. Then later the spareribs came with........exactly the same sauce. Almost like the same dish. I think they should have warned him that the 2 dishes have the same sauce.
As the sauce was not very nice he had bad luck twice. Pitty.

Yet again, excellent service excellent food and excellent beer! A very cosy location to while away a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. An earlier run on roast dinners meant they had run out and made us try something else. Thoroughly recommend the honey rack of ribs! The BBQ burger went down well too! It’s great to spend time in a place where the staff clearly want to be there and deliver genuine friendly service. Shame one of us was driving as the pint of warm cider looked very appealing! We had a 6 year old with us on this visit and she was made most welcome too.

This is defiantly a one of a kind pub, I have eaten here many times and had no problems! I think the other reviews are people being a bit too fussy!

The food has always been amazing, great value for money and will always be coming back for more. The service was a treat, I always feel spoiled when I go there!

I even have a few nights out there, friendly doorman and friendly staff. Never had a bad night in there. The choices of beer are outstanding, there is always something new to try when you go in, which is hard for most pubs to do!

I would recommend this pub to anyone wanting to experience Canterbury's best pubs!

Went to this pub for lunch. We ordered food and drinks (then noticed the ketchup bottles were all dirty - not cleaned at all but it was too late to leave). The Lasagne had very little sauce, garlic bread was hardly cooked just spread with garlic butter not melted. The gammon was two big slabs of dense bacon, Luke warm chips. Music was very loud we had to ask for it to be turned down we could not hear each speaking (they did turn down the music).

Visited this micro brewery on the recommendation of our walking tour guide. Nice little place with very friendly staff. We had different beers but both enjoyed them. Stayed for another and a plate of warm pitta, hummus and tapenade - just the job at 4 o'clock on a sunny October afternoon.
