With its charming olde-worlde exterior, the 16th Century Bishops Finger stands out as one of Canterbury’s most distinctive historical pubs. A must-visit Kent pub, and just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the historic cathedral and the city’s major attractions, makes it the perfect sanctuary for a refreshing pint - for locals and visitors alike.
Whether you’re looking for an exciting venue showing the football, or a cosy local to enjoy a romantic meal in, Bishops Finger is your pub.
Hidden behind our beautiful 16th century façade is our secret! At the rear of the pub you will discover one of the largest beer gardens in Canterbury, a tranquil space in the heart of the city. Tranquil unless, of course, we’re hosting one of our much-loved live music events, in which case you can expect a fun, lively evening!
Watch the game inside before enjoying a beer and a mouth-watering meal in our pub garden - perfect on a summer’s day.
You’ll find a great choice of traditional cask ales here (including Shepherd Neame’s ‘Bishops Finger’, naturally), alongside an exciting range of beers and wines from independent producers around the world.
There’s great fresh food too, with dishes ranging from tasty bar snacks to brilliant burgers. So if you’re looking for a family-friendly pub in Canterbury with food, football, and fabulous beer, let Bishops Finger point the way.
