Went for a night out, was rammed on a Saturday night and as always this place refuses to get a cloak room, making us leave coats on the floor near us. A load of our groups coat got stolen and the barmaid told me to stop moaning and said she could do nothing about it . Was basically told to... More

We had booked for 3 evening dinners -Christmas eve, boxing day and bank holiday which we had done last year. Our bookings had been confirmed but on checking upon arrival in Canterbury we... More

My overall rating for the Old Brewery would have been higher but for the glaring lack of a key ingredient in a dish. Members of my party were,however, generally satisfied with the burgers served. Service was friendly and efficient, and the beers on offer very good. Vegetarian options are a little limited.

Let me start with the positive..... The waiting staff were excellent... Unfortunately they were monumentally let down by the kitchen.... Imagine putting honda c90 engine in a ddge charger and you get the idea. Lovely venue. As I said, great staff, and I know this time of year is busy but raw sprouts and undercooked risotto are not what you... More

Monday night is hotdog night, which doesn't really excite me. However, I ventured in as the restaurant area looked quite stylish and they were still service food at 8 pm. The choice was mainly between hotdog, steak, pizza, fish and chips and the likes. Not the most imaginative menu but it appeals to the masses. The fish cake starter I... More

What a friendly establishment this is, the food was excellent and the service matched. We even got to meet one of the chefs Andy who was able to assure one of our party about the contents of one of the dishes as they had a food intolerance. Charming waiting staff too plus a fine selection of Kentish beers, overall a... More

The food was excellent and the service matched. Once the restaurant closes it turns into a club with great music and a nice atmosphere.

Cool and uncluttered, The Old Brewery Tavern is a purpose-built modern British pub and restaurant in the historic city of Canterbury. Part of the chic ABode Hotels group, this is an upbeat contemporary space, split between a bright decked courtyard with sliding glass windows, a cosy lounge and a more traditional central dining area with chunky wooden tables and chairs. Honest, robust modern British cooking results in satisfying dishes featuring freshly caught fish and meats such as Sussex beef and Romney Marsh lamb, accompanied by local and regional cask ales and an extensive wine list.
