One-roomed 18th century pub although the front bar looked a little Victorian to my eyes whereas there are timber noggings in the rear dining area. My pint of Old Dairy Red Top was nothing special (didn't try the Hopdaemon Incubus) but there was some good early 80s music playing and the landlord gave us a potted history of fishtail parkas and was keen to explain that you can't buy Jägerbombs or similar there (which must be a good sign).

Guy who served me was polite, and the beer was OK, but when I left and thanked the barmaid, she just ignored me, and kept chatting to a friend. So not impressed by that.

Gorgeous aroma with vast amounts of hops hanging from the ceiling,only 5.90 for two pints of guest ale too. 6/10

The previous reviewer has it spot-on. The TB is a lovely pub for a quiet pint, but the quality and service in the dining area has dropped in the past year to the point that every visit is now an exercise in annoyance and frustration.

What on earth has happened to the food in this pub?
Even as recently as a year ago this was the pub to go for food in Canterbury. We went almost every Sunday, but slowly little by little the quality dropped so far that it became was little more than uninspiring, cheap, under/over cooked mess on a plate. Its such a shame as this really is a gem inside. Always got a good selection of beers on although the beer quality was a little tepid but by no means bad.
A great shame, as I used to love eating here, it hasn't changed hands so maybe the eye has been taken off the ball.
The place to eat pub food in Canterbury has to be the Two Sawyers Ivy Lane for quality or perhaps the Unicorn, St Dunstans for something tasty if not a little basic.
