The Friars, Canterbury, CT1 2AS

In the centre of Canterbury, overlooking the magnificent cathedral, you’ll find The Marlowe, where theatre fans flock to enjoy some of the best touring shows and performances in the country. It isn’t only the fantastic shows that keep people returning to this unique venue time and again, though, but the whole experience: from the superb service to the delectable food served in its laid-back café, bar and restaurant, The Green Room. Here, fresh ingredients – many of which are sourced from local suppliers – are used to create superb British dishes with a contemporary twist.

We dined from the pre-show menu, which offers two courses for £16.50 and three for £19.50 with gluten-free and vegan menus available upon request. The atmosphere was relaxed yet lively, and there was a buzz of excitement in the air in anticipation of both the delicious dishes to come and the show we were to see afterwards. The wine list is diverse, interesting and well priced. I chose a glass of Chapel Down Flint Dry, which paired beautifully with my starter of roasted butternut squash soup with red pepper pesto. Next, I tucked into a main course of succulent pan-fried pork belly with black pudding, mashed potato, apple purée, tenderstem broccoli and red wine jus. I couldn’t resist finishing with rice pudding with caramelised pineapple and toasted coconut, as well as sampling a selection of Canterbury cheese with a lovely glass of pinot noir. After such scrumptious fare we were well and truly ready to enjoy the show.
