Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2HG.

Located in Burgate just off The Parade. Very substantial frontage but not too deep. History of pub name: Richard Harris Barham was born in 1788, at 61 Burgate, across the road from this Wetherspoon pub. Using the pen name Thomas Ingoldsby he wrote The Ingoldsby Legends, which first appeared in 1840, in a periodical edited by Charles Dickens. Richard Harris Barham, alias Thomas Ingoldsby, had an accident when he was 14, which crippled his right arm. During a long convalescence he began to write. Re-opened on 29th May 2018 after 4 months of closure to add hotel facilities (13 rooms) and an upstairs bar and bar counter.

We have visited this pub 98 times, seen 284 different beers and tried 131 of them.
