The Golden Lion Canterbury Restaurant 1

Our food

The Golden Lion prides itself on pub food done properly - with freshly prepared, homemade dishes all cooked to order on site. 

Choose from the likes of steak and ale pie, pan-fried duck breast, poached fillet of plaice or rib-eye steak (plus a number of vegetarian options), all crafted from ingredients sourced from local allotments and growers wherever possible.

A superb-value over-60s menu is also available, served Tuesdays and Thursdays between noon and 2pm.
