Canterbury Tales, 12 The Friars, CANTERBURY, CT1 2AS [Map]
Easy to find as you simply need to follow signs to the Marlowe Theatre and the pub's straight opposite. There's a very warm welcome from the staff as soon as you walk in who make you feel at home in this clean, tidy pub. It's recently been refurbished to give it a very smart feel.
Beerwise there were two Kentish beers on offer, one from Shepherd Neame, the other from Goachers. They also had a couple of guests on offer too. Both pints that I consumed were perfect and we were also very tempted by the food (I heard during 2002 that the beer range may now be more limited). The selection was wide and they seem to specialise in Mexican dishes which you can eat either downstairs in the bar or upstairs in the restaurant.
They've piped music in the bar along with all sorts of games to keep you amused. The clientele was mainly young whilst we were there and included a number of theatregoers who'd popped in for a pre-show drink.
Well worth finding in the tourist capital of Kent.
