The Old Brewery Tavern

Squaremeal Review of The Old Brewery Tavern ?

Sitting snugly on Canterbury’s medieval High Street, this branch of the ABode hotel chain not only includes Michael Caines flagship restaurant, but also a self-appointed ‘tavern’. The name might suggest ‘ye olde’ watering hole, but the Old Brewery is bang up to date with its sliding glass windows, bright contemporary furnishings and a smart, all-year decking area protected by a heated ‘umbrella’. Assorted platters and grills supplement an upbeat choice of Scotch duck eggs, smoked halibut with herb crème fraîche, chicken, leek and mushroom pie or wild mushroom gnocchi – all based on Kentish produce where possible. Kids have their own menu and the drinks list includes locally brewed beers and cider as well as a strong contingent of international wines. Regular live music, DJ nights and special promotions are a feature of the place.

Along the city backstreet from its sister restaurant at Michael Caines’s ABode, the tavern offers a stylish dining room and large bar area modern enough in décor to play both restaurant...

Took my daughter for a post brithday brunch. She had a child's roast and I had the full English. Her beef was tough, roast potatoes overcooked and the vegetables cool. Having waited for 30 minutes from ordering and watching carefully the chefs preparation with extensive fingering and faffing I had at least expected a hot tasty breakfast. Unfortunately not even the plate was hot. One precooked and reheated sausage, two rashers of bacon one crispy, the other hardly having received any heat and half...
