The location and building is one of the reasons you like Canterbury - a timbered old building with history associated to the medieval society. We had a meal and was not as great as the good locally grown hopped beer. We enjoyed being in The Parrot and grabbing a beer.

This is a great little pub. The oldest pub in Canterbury and one of the oldest buildings in the town as well. The staff are always friendly and happy to serve and the place always smells lovely thanks to the wood fires. The food is good - better than traditional pub grub with a good variety on offer. It may... More

A warm pub off the tourist track with a cosy atmosphere that captures the character of Canterbury. The staff were friendly and attentive. The posh fish fingers and tartare sauce were good and filling. My husband liked the local ale. We really enjoyed the experience and the food.

The turkey dinner was something you would expect to be served in a prison. Poor quality processed meat, round in shape, never seen a round turkey before!! Insipid gravy, one mini sausage and some average veg. The food on there webiste looks great, however, it is nothing like the food we were served. Very dissapointing meal, which as a real... More

One of my favourite places in Canterbury! Lovely in the summer with the garden and lovely in the winter with the big fires.

After a magnificent Evensong at the Canterbury Cathedral, I walked through the rain (glad I had put an umbrella in the car before leaving town), got lost a couple of times, made a phone call, and, in the end, found the Parrot restaurant. It's a comfortable mix of friends and families. I ordered Braised Lamb Shoulder, Mashed Potatoes with chives... More

Visited Parrot for the first time Sunday evening. Fairly quiet for a Sunday evening. Food was ok, mashed potato with pie was very microwaved and dried out. Burgers were nice although served with chips and sadly the chip oil needed changing! All in all the food was ok!

Thank Mandybusby30
