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.

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....More

A good local pub with great atmosphere. Food was being served at very reasonable prices along with an excellent selection of ales. Service was fast and staff courteous.
