After my disappointment of being able to end the evening at the Foundry we went back onto Butchery Lane and ended the evening in the City Arms.

The City Arms is a very quaint pub on a site where there has been an Inn for over 300 years.

Part owned by Canterbury Brewers and a sister pub to The Foundry, this is a real adults pub, music playing via the bar but it was at a decent level and allowed the wife and I top have a conversation.

6 pumps on the bar that had 1 real cider, 3 Canterbury ales and an offering from Ramsgate Brewery, the other pump was spare waiting for a beer or cider to be put on. I opted for Foundry Torpedo @ 4.5%. A nice beer that was very drinkable.

This pub appeared in the 2014 Camra GBG but hasn't made the 2015 edition...however its a really decent city centre pub and is worthy of a visit.

Sister pub to the Foundry brewpub nearby. Same excellent beers although range not as big. Idyllic location next to the cathedral. These two places are just what Canterbury needed.

I agree with NathanJones about the friendliness of the barstaff and the customers. Not the biggest selection of real ales but those available are local and very well kept. The beer NJ refers to is from the Foundary just down the road and is well worth supping. This pub hasn't always been one I would choose to go to but I've visited a few times recently and been impressed.
