ABode Canterbury, 30-33 High Street, Canterbury, CT1 2RX
ABode Canterbury is a luxury hotel that offers a unique range of dining experiences, from modern European cuisine in the County Restaurant and cocktails in the Champagne Bar to quality, casual dining in the Old Brewery Tavern. Under the culinary expertise of executive chef Jauca Catalin, who has had years of experience working alongside two-Michelin-starred chefs, County Restaurant is characterised by its delectable modern European cuisine. This popular restaurant offers an à la carte menu, with main courses starting from £13.50, and a fixed-price two-course lunch for £17. The sublime food available in County Restaurant is enhanced by a wine list that has been carefully curated to complement the new seasonal dishes introduced year-round; you can glimpse the bins in the glass-fronted wine cellar. The Champagne Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a celebratory glass of fizz or a sumptuous cocktail made by the bar’s talented mixologists. By day it is ideally placed for escaping the hustle of the High Street and watching the world go by while indulging in a coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Unusually for a city-centre hotel, the Champagne Bar features a crackling log fire in the cooler winter months and if you’ve come to the end of a day’s shopping in Canterbury, it is the perfect place to unwind with a sumptuous afternoon tea. Elegant, freshly prepared finger sandwiches with a selection of delicious cakes and scones, and a pot of Newby London tea or coffee will delight – perhaps even add a glass of fizz to make the occasion that little bit more luxurious.
