Welcome to the Bishops Finger

The Bishops Finger is a 16th century traditional pub in the heart of Canterbury, a short walk from the historic cathedral and the city’s major attractions.

Today, the pub is a lively venue for sports-lovers, with five large screen televisions – including one outside – showing all the latest football, cricket and rugby action on Sky.

As well as a covered TV area, the garden also has plenty of room to relax, with seating for up to 50 customers.

The Bishops Finger is also known for good pub food and a choice of traditional cask ales, distinctive international lagers and wines from independent producers around the world.

The rear of the pub can be hired for small parties or business meetings.

What our customers say

Great local boozer - This is a great place to have a drink while waiting for a taxi back to Whitstable. A nice friendly pub popular with locals.


A bar for meeting mates - Football on a huge TV? Check. Great beer garden? Check. Decent red wines? Check. Friendly atmosphere? Check. I always meet friends here, for those occasions when you just haven't seen each other in a while. On football days, the Spurs games are regularly on TV. Yet this isn't a typical sports bar. The people drinking here are friendly, it's easy to get chatting at the bar. As regards prices, it's pretty standard for Shepherd Neame.
