    The Phoenix is situated on the corner of Old Dover Road and Cossington Road, between the County Cricket Ground and Canterbury city centre. A Free House, The Phoenix always endevours to stock eight real ales, including one mild. Food is available lunchtimes and evenings, there is outdoor seating on our beer terrace, a covered smoking area and a patron’s car park to the side.

    Bob & Nilla Griffiths are now the licensees, having also been running the Rose & Crown in St.Dunstans for over three years and now transferring their attentions to The Phoenix. While both now are retired, Bob was previously in medical sales whilst Nilla ran two hairdressing salons. Last owning pubs thirty-four years ago in Rochester, including The Don Cossack, they now turn their attentions and fondness of real ale to one of Canterbury’s best known hostelries, well loved amongst cricket fans, visitors to the city and locals alike.

    Bob’s family were in Pubs all his life and he learnt his cellar skills from his step father who apart from being a Licensee had also been a dray man for twenty-five years, and so there was nothing you could tell him about beer, (one quote being “there are no such thing as bad beers, just some better than others”).

      The staff provided a great hand on service, which was completed good food, nice wine. Nice touch was being able to taste the wines first, which resulted in our changing our selection.

      We called for drinks and stayed to eat and no one in the party had anything but praise for very dish, but the fish and chips was like a whale on a plate! The beer , wine and whisky were good too.

      This is a repeat visit to this establishment for us and it is always our top choice place when we visit the area. Tonight’s experience proved us right again. We did get reservations in advance and were seated immediately. Service was excellent – very attentive and helpful in all regards. The food was exceptional.
