user reviews of the Beer Cart Arms, Canterbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I was in here the first day of the World Snooker Championship final which from other comments I've seen must have been the first Sunday of the month and was it transpired a day reserved for rock / goth music and fans of that genre. It was fairly mad in here with a dance floor filled with people going fairly crazy but in a reasonable behaved manner. Even as a visitor who clearly didn't fit this profile I didn't get any funny looks or feel uncomfortable, I just retreated to the end of the bar where some chaps were playing pool and watching the snooker on TV. Eventually the rock music took it's toll and got the better of me but from what I saw this pub was perfectly OK. If if you're not into rock just avoid the special nights where this is the focus and I'm sure you'll have a good time, if you are into rock then this looked like a really great night out.

This place is more of a bar than a pub because:
(a) No real ale on draught
(b) There's a range of cocktails and shooters
(c) There's a shots bar open occasionally i think.

But still, I love this place - but only on certain nights. Cock Rock (now on Wednesday nights) and Hades (Goth/industrial/ebm/darkwave, 1st Sun of each month) I can recommend.

I've been here a couple of times on rock nights. The music is loud and the glasses - or rather plastics - are plastic.

There is no real beer. As far as I know the best they have is Guinness or maybe Worthington or similar, and I may recall seeing a bottle of Newcastle Brown.

I think there's a pool table at the back of the pub.

They have recently had a noise limiter fitted, set at a rather conservative 90dB, which has already prevented one band from performing (as seen in local newspapers).

On these rock nights, the few tables are always taken and most people have to stand.

This is probably not the sort of place you'd go to if you were to want a sit-down and a pint - however, I haven't been there in the daytime so I may be partially wrong!
