As the previous review states, this is now the Black Griffin. It is on one of Canterbury's main shopping streets. But it was surprisingly quiet. 4 ales were on - Exmoor Antler, Goddards Fuddle-Dee-Dum, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle & Upper Punter. Cider was Old Rosie. We tried just about all the ales between us and were less than impressed with the quality. We stayed in the front bar. But there appeared to be further space behind.

Now the Black Griffin again. Wider selection of ales than there used to be. Everard Tiger, Moorhouse Pride of Pendle, Incuubus and Bombardier Gold the other day when I visited.

The clientele were young, pretty much the same as before with a few tourists thrown in.

The pub is in two parts. The front has a few chairs aound the edge whereas the back half has more tables and chairs laid out. There is also a small outside area beyond that. The whole pub is bare floorboards.

An ok pub but in a town which has a lot of good real ale outlets I don't visit here often.

Popped in briefly yesterday to escape a downpour. 3 beers and a cider on offer on the handpumps. The beers were ther bog standard Doombar and Hobgoblin and an acceptable Fuggles. Not at all busy though. Not really a place that I'd race back to.

Has now changed its name and reverted back to The Black Griffin. The port stout on Saturday was ok and the food was very enjoyable

Seemed to be nice enough studenty bar...but after 20 mins a stag night came in shouting and being cocks. Then another one came in after that. So I left.

On a positive note, it seemed lively if that's what you are after.
