  • Great place to eat and buy some local food! We came across this place when we visited Canterbury and what a great surprise. We tried some local cheese along with a glass of white white. Good prices and great food. It is definitely worth a visit plus it is just located a walking distance from the city centre.
  • Excellent place for foodies. It's a mini Borough Market with a selection of fish, meat, vegetables, cheese and wine stalls. Also a great restaurant serving locally sourced food which I have visited many times. Right next to Canterbury West train station so convenient for visitors who live outside Canterbury.
  • Spent time at the restaurant whilst soaking in the atmosphere and buzz of the indoor market. Food was simple, fresh and delicious. Staff were accomodating and happy for us to choose a selection of starters and puddings as we did not want a full meal
  • Great all rounder. Bar and restaurant are excellent, food has never failed to be fantastic. The other units are also great and have something to offer for everyone. I love the market, fishmongers and butchers. 100% recommend if you're visiting Canterbury.
  • 10 minutes walk from centre of town. Great selection of local produced food and drink. Very reasonable prices compared to city centre. Knowledgeable sellers especially Cheesemakers of Canterbury, who advised on exactly the kind of mix we were looking for. Well worth a visit but limited parking.

Where to stay in Canterbury

To explore Canterbury at your own pace, book your rooms at a family-run hotel in the heart of this historical city. Staying in this area keeps you close to all of the city's main historical sites, as well as its major shopping center. Family-run hotels offer traditional values, warm hospitality, and fully-licensed bars and restaurants, all at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. For an equally comfortable and affordable stay, consider one of many centrally located guesthouses, which feature elegant rooms and covered courtyards.
