The New Inn was our first stop on a short crawl of Canterbury pubs. It's a back street pub on a terraced street to the east of town. 5 ales were on - Purity Pure Gold, Harveys Sussex Best Bitter, Oakham Citra, Adnams Ghost Ship & Thornbridge Jaipur. I was hoping they'd have a real cider. But sadly the best available was Aspalls Harry Sparrow on keg. The front bar is quite small and it leads into a conservatory. Nice enough pub. But would have preferred a dark beer or a cider.

Off the beaten track a little but well worth seeking out. Very much a local pub with the same old faces lined up along the bar whenever I visit!
That said it's not a cliquey pub and both the customers and the staff are friendly.

At first glance looking up Havelock St there doesn't appear to be a pub there at all as most of the street is made up of residential housing.

It's larger inside than expected, long and narrow with the bar just inside the door and a beer garden out the back.

Excellent selection of beers, Summer Lightning, Betty Stoggs and Tribute were all available on my last visit.

Themed weekend, 3G's and 2 C's. Gadds beers, Goodys Ales and G2 as well as micro brewery Turnstone Two Seas from Whitstable, BBQ and music. Beers all excellent condition and the pub was buzzing, as it deserves to be. Sunday lunchtime is a continuation of the same and the monthly cooking competition is back on, free food for judges. Undoubtedly the best beers in Canterbury.

After braving the snow flurries and a quick stop in The Parrot we made our way to the 3rd pub from the 2015 GBG on my list and possibly the best so far.

On a side street just off the main road and resembling more of a house than a pub The New Inn was busy with ale drinkers just after 5.30pm when we arrived.

6 hand pumps with 4 ales on & an additional pump with real cider. I went for Castle Rock Breweries Red Riding Hood @ 4.5%. This was another new beer for me and very drinkable.

Small bar area with most punters in the front room and no-one in the 2 small alcove rooms out the bar in the conservatory.

The interior is Spartan but it works. There was no music or television on but the chatter was plentiful.

Another very good pub but it seriously looks like someone's house.

As I say probably the best pub of the day.
