Afternoon, festive. My first visit to the new premises in Stour Street - part of the building that was the original Foundry cafe in the seventies - ah, such memories. Larger premises with two areas - bar area as you enter with a refractory style eating area off to the right with a view into the brewery. I often found the previous location rather austere and unwelcoming- first impressions of this are much better.

My first visit here since it moved location. It's bigger but full of Christmas party people so probably not that representative of what it's usually like.

Two of us were on a tour of Canterbury which should originally have been Broadstairs but disruption on South Eastern Trains caused a change of plan. We popped in here for a farewell visit before the pub closes on 7 October and relocates to nearby Stour Street with a reopening planned for 13 October. I have not listed all the beers on offer.

Hot afternoon. Chaotic behind the bar and got our order mixed up. Seem to be concentrating on food and craft ale too much.

Late afternoon - quiet. Really just stopped for a bladder break after the bus back from Ramsgate. Didnít note all beers on although possibly unusually a guest ale from Cellar Head? Note - sister pub the City Arms is closed for refurbishment at present.

Busy upstairs and downstairs. I learned that there are plans to install a still so that they can produce their own spirits.

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

Brewery tap for Canterbury Brewers. The brewery is inside the building and may be viewed through an internal window. Upstairs and ground floor bars with the latter always open. 7 handpumps sported in each of the 2 bars. Substantial discount on real ales for Card carrying CAMRA members - at April 2013 this was 10% on own brewed beer - ask if there is a discount on food too as this is allegedly 10% too. Consists of two bar areas - one downstairs adjacent to the brewery and another up some steps to a mezzanine level. Originally located in White Horse Lane near the Cherry Tree pub. In addition to its excellent home brewed ales the pub is getting a reputation for tasty and good value food. Moved in October 2018 to a new location in Stour Street "lock stock and barrel".

We have visited this pub 127 times, seen 96 different beers and tried 72 of them.
