Eating and drinking here

Canterbury and Whitstable are both blessed with many excellent restaurants and pubs. Many (in fact, most) pubs also serve good-quality food. If you would like advice on where to eat and/or drink, then please feel free to ask one of the organising committee during your stay. Alternatively, here are some links to some of our favourite establishments:

The Goods Shed: outstanding local English/Kentish food and drink.

Deesons: another restaurant specialising in excellent local food; very close to the cathedral.

The Dolphin: friendly traditional pub (good friend of the Department at Kent) with decent food and drink.

The Foundry: brewpub with award-winning ales and lagers brewed on site.

Salt: a new restaurant winning many hearts and minds.

The Parrot: a medieval pub with food, next to the Roman wall.

Alberrys: wine and cocktail bar and nightclub in the city centre.

Samphire: excellent local food in a cosy environment (situated in Whitstable).

The Shakespeare: traditional pub in the heart of the city, with very good food and a wide range of beers and wines.

The Royal Native Oyster Stores: local seafood served right on the beach at Whitstable.

The Sportsman: for really pushing the boat out, Whitstable’s Michelin-starred food pub.

The Neptune: a great pub with live music on the beach at Whitstable. Simple as that.
