Went here on a cold Monday afternoon because we needed somewhere in a hurrry. It was clean. The service was good. Friendly staff. The food was adequate. Nothing amazing but it did us a turn. The wine list was fine. Toilets weren't great though.

The reviews are misleading. The food is not great, the staff not nice. I had cottage pie which looked like dog food and had very little flavour .No wonder it comes with a jug of gravy. Our onion rings were soft. I'm guessing the food is pre made and then heated up. We won't be back for a meal again

Xmas shopping can be a bore but not when you come across as Quirky as the 3 Tons. Well there is the semi circular bar with tables for meals but it's the maze of small rooms which make this Pub ideal for all sorts of functions. Some open Plan others secluded. Ideal for an Office Party, Will most certainly return... More

We came to visit lovely town of Canterbury with my friends. Only because unluckily we chose this pub our day was spoiled. When we have ordered drinks we have been given filthy glasses and at this point we should leave. However, we gave it a go with the food and we had to wait ages but what we got was... More

We visited with our family today. We ordered 3 kids sausage meals, 1 adult sausage and mash, 1 gammon and a jacket. After between 10 and 15 mins the chef came and said they didn't have sufficient sausages, for us all, so we changed the adult sausage to ham egg and chips. After 35 minutes my husband went to find...

I came hey with some friends of mine and I found the service was really good and the food was okay. This place is really close to the town centre but I do believe it has closed down now and which is a shame as I enjoyed my time here.

After a busy day of shopping myself and my friend decided lunch was well needed, I had heard of the Three Tuns from my friend and thought it would the perfect opportunity to try it out. The pub had a very traditional feel, and lots of seating including a beer garden, we found a little spot in the corner and... More

My wife and I had pie and chips here on our recent visit. We really enjoyed the "open mike" and the songs from the 1960s and 70s. We should have arrived earlier.

Went to the Three Tuns in Canterbury for dinner as a party of five. Special deal of the day was steak, so 5 steaks ordered. They had no steaks, none whatsoever. So went back to table to decide what else to have. Time wasted already. Went to bar again to order 5 new meals. Waited 35 mins, went up to... More
