Welcome to The Thomas Becket

OUR NEW SPRING MENU IS HERE

A new season means a new hive of activity in our kitchens as our chef’s cook up some new dishes. The fresh flavours of summer are always something to look forward to. From our new seabass risotto to our half roast chicken, we’ve got something for everyone on our new menu.

A traditional family-friendly pub

Soak up our friendly service and homely charm when nestled in the heart of Canterbury town. Situated a stones throw from the Great Stour river and a gentle 2 minute walk from the historic Canterbury Cathedral, our 18th Century pub is perfectly located for you to pop in for a light lunch, a proper pub dinner or just a drink or two after a busy day sightseeing!

Our traditional pub classics are expertly crafted from our seasonal menus and the bar is crammed with local ales and tipples to tempt any taste buds. Using the most seasonal ingredients and decadent flavours, there’s a dish for every desire.
