Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

Smarter than a pub and friendlier than a restaurant, The Canterbury Bell in Thanet gives diners the best of both worlds. Light wood, spotlights and lamps, smooth leather seats, and comfy upholstered bucket chairs give us a fresh contemporary look, and a warm, welcoming feel. A convenient location, quality cask ales, fine wines and an extensive menu make us a popular choice for midweek lunches, family meals and drinks with friends. 

Planning a trip to Botany Bay? Make a weekend of it and stay in our lovely lodge. Modern ensuite guest rooms are spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated.

Rotisserie chicken is at the heart of our menu. We choose to use Red Tractor farm-assured chicken so you know you’re eating meat that’s sourced and produced responsibly. Open the menu and discover an array of exciting plates. We also do steaks and grills, hearty pies, fish, and tasty vegetarian options. There’s plenty of choice for your little chicks, too. Bigger chicks will love our mini rotisserie dishes. All that good food is bound to give them bags of energy. Let them burn some of it off in the outdoor play area.

About Our Food

Our food is freshly prepared onsite using ethically-sourced ingredients; like our Red Tractor farm-assured chicken, our responsibly-fished cod and haddock and the langoustine tails in our golden Whitby scampi that are fished in UK waters.

We believe that restaurant-style dining doesn’t have to be restricted to a formal atmosphere. That’s why you’ll find fine British pub food on our menu, elevated by the use of excellent ingredients and unusual sides. At a Marston’s Rotisserie pub, you’ll get quality renditions of the best pies, burgers, steaks and curries as well as our signature rotisserie chicken. You’ll also find exclusive dishes created by our chefs in our annual Chef of the Year competition.
