Fodor's Expert Review Old Buttermarket

$ Canterbury British

A colorful, friendly old pub near the cathedral, the Buttermarket is a great place to grab a hearty lunch and sample some traditional English fare with a modern inflection. You can sip a pint of fresh English ale from the changing selection while sampling a chicken, butter-bean, and bacon pie, or perhaps a warming bowl of applewood-smoked macaroni and cheese. There's been a pub on this site for more than 500 years; historical records show that there were once secret tunnels connecting it to Canterbury Cathedral.
