The Parrot, Canterbury
Time & Location
About The Event
One of Canterbury’s oldest buildings, The Parrot was built on Roman foundations in the 14th century - while the city’s famous cathedral was under construction nearby.
Tucked away down a picturesque cobbled street, the historic hostelry still wears its age with sublime style - a wealth of medieval beams, enormous oak floorboards and authentic open fires providing an atmospheric backdrop to fine food and drink.
Indeed, it’s not just history and heritage that makes this a special spot, there’s genuinely first-class fare to savour.
For ale aficionados, there’s up to six real ales at the bar, including award-winning local beer from Kent brewer Shepherd Neame.
And for foodies, an array of marvellous morsels await. Whether you’re seeking nibbles to accompany a crisp glass of wine, a thick doorstep sandwich for lunch or an elegant evening meal with friends, The Parrot has a menu to suit.
When you’ve something to celebrate, you can even enjoy a banquet of your own in the first floor Medieval function room. Special occasions deserve a special setting, and with six centuries of history, The Parrot certainly fits the bill…
