Not bad for lunch for one time. The price was ok and the taste is not so bad. The atmosphere is nice and cozy.

Used to work in Canterbury years ago and don’t visit more than once a month, we popped in for a bit of nostalgia as I used to drink here. Fantastic service and still a lovely old traditional pub and bar. Great staff.

Although the menu card has now overtaken the Weatherspoons in Selsdon in the world’s stickiest beerstained sheet of paper competition, the beer was very well kept and the food of good quality. Certainly worth considering rather than the ubiquitous chain restaurants nearby.

Great prices, great food & a great service. It’s such a lovely old building but does need a little work updating. 👍
