Pleasant enough pub, although pretty empty if nothing is on across the road at the theatre. But at 3.70 for a pint of ale, it was the most expensive pub that I found in Canterbury.

Nipped in for a swift one prior to theatre-going at the Marlowe opposite. Place was heaving. Pleasant though.

Lovely pub; kind and helpful staff and a warm and cosy environment! Unsurprising it istypically packed out

This pub is really frinedly with a great attitude from staff.
Good beers and the wine is priced really well. Gets really busy late on with the late licence and you never have to wait too long at the bar despite it being rammed.
During the daytime this place is quiet and realxing (no jukebox/TV) just great ales, eclectic music (landlord's choice), a warm fire and really friendly and talkative staff.
I love the place and reccommend it to anybody. Day time is for all ages, late night is for the students/younger local crowd.

I only go in here because it's the only place to go when everywhere else has closed. Can't say I would go in for any other reason. Normal Canterbury prices (expensive), average quality, staff are really a good bunch though.
