I'm not sure how two cokes and two jacket potatoes come to over £20 but I would have expected perfect crispy jackets- but they weren't. Nothing wrong, just average. When presented with the card machine I instinctively tapped the contactless reader to pay but almost got told off and informed that the waitress wasn't allowed to use contactless! Why have... More

My wife and I called here on our first night in Canterbury, and we were pleased with the excellent service we received, the staff were very polite and the food was both well presented and tasty, We would definitely have a meal here again if we ever venture to Canterbury again.

Great place. We went here a lot when we were dating so thought it would be nice to come back for our wedding anniversary. We wasn't disappointed. As always the food was superb and the service was 5 star. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Full of tourists but good food, had lamb and apricot pie and my boyfriend had stuffed Yorkshire puddings. No space left for desert but they looked nice too.

On a sunny day a lovely spot to have tea coffee or a cool drink . Did not eat there but heard good independent reports . Staff friendly and helpful . Lovely old building leaning over a tributary of the stout but dead central Canterbury .

This tiny black & white cottage on the High Street is deceptive. You step down and duck down to enter but it's really extensive inside with lots of nooks & crannies. It's decorated with lots of antiques and interesting bits to look at. The service was great and so was the food. All home cooked and fresh, we ordered pies... More

We stopped in for lunch at The Old Weavers Restaurant while touring Canterbury because of the building's exterior charm. We were promptly greeted and sat in a cozy room in the front of the restaurant where we ordered a local craft lager and two pies. I ordered the steak and guiness pie with chips, my wife ordered the chicken and... More
