In the spirit of Canterbury’s most famous playwright (and within spitting distance of the famous Marlowe Theatre), Marlowe’s Restaurant on St Peters Street boasts an atmosphere unlike any other in the city centre. It’s vibrant and jovial while maintaining an air of casual elegance. Marlowe’s Restaurant is one of the best options in Canterbury for pre-theatre dining, with a host of starters, salads, sides and main dishes showcasing the best of modern British cuisine, not to mention their fine wines and draught beers. Marlowe’s Restaurant also warrants a multi-course meal, which can feature anything from sesame-encrusted tuna to a honeycomb toffee cheesecake with salted caramel ice cream.
Believed to be one of the – if not the – oldest restaurants in the heart of Canterbury, Marlowe’s Restaurant is as charming a British pub and restaurant as you’re likely to find anywhere. As we said, it’s set on St Peters Street, just meters from the Marlowe Theatre inside a cute townhouse with panelled windows and white brick. As a result, Marlowe’s is wonderfully atmospheric – especially during theme nights when the staff get into the spirit and don costumes – with an unmistakable vibe and intimacy that make it ones of the most unique spots in Canterbury to enjoy proper British food and drink.
Despite Marlowe’s Restaurant being a part of Canterbury’s history, the name of the game when it comes to the food is very much modern British. The lunch menu has options in the way of goats’ cheese gratin, slow-roasted pork belly and traditional fish and chips, while for dinner there’s a steak board, chicken supreme, lamb skewers and plenty more besides. Stop by on Sunday for a roast or anytime you like for a cosy drink. We love Marlowe’s, and we know you will, too.
