Welcome to The Thomas Becket

A resplendent city pub, located in the backwaters of distinctive and historical Canterbury.

A cracking range of beers, liveners & pick me ups sit behind the bar, coupled with quirky art, curiosities, and plenty of cosy or lively spots to enjoy your pint and put the world to rights.

Popular with diners, our eclectic menu sees British classics rub shoulders with modern bistro dishes.

At the heart of Canterbury

Situated just back from the Great Stour river, our 18th Century pub is just a two-minute walk from the historic Canterbury Cathedral,
making us perfectly located for you to pop in for lunch, drink or even dinner after a busy day sightseeing!
