Just a stone’s throw from the city centre and five minutes from the beautiful cathedral, Thomas Becket is a great place to relax after exploring the city. Tucked behind the old library, the welcoming pub is steeped in history and is named after the 10th-century Archbishop of Canterbury. Having stood for 250 years, this traditional pub attracts many visitors from near and far and boasts a cosy, countryside feel.
The daily changing specials board features an array of delicious dishes, which are all made using fresh, local produce. Popular choices from the main menu include traditional meals such as local sausage and mash, and fresh fish and chips. Classic desserts such as crème brûlée and the quintessentially British blackberry Eton Mess are a must. The cheeseboard is sourced from local Cheesemakers of Canterbury and will please even the most discerning foodies. To complement the fantastic food at Thomas Becket, a great selection of wine is available, and there are plenty of real ales to verify the pub’s Cask Marque-accredited status. Gin-lovers will adore the customised gin and tonic menu. Every Sunday, Thomas Becket serves an attractively priced roast throughout the day. It’s incredibly popular, so booking is recommended. If you enjoy a quiz night, the Thomas Becket hosts a popular one every other week. Please call to find out more information and for upcoming dates.
