Home to one of the world’s most famous cathedrals and other UNESCO world heritage sites, Canterbury is one of the most popular tourist destinations in England. It provides a mixture of quaint, medieval town architecture around Burgate to the more modern shopping area of Whitefriars, all within close reach of Kent’s countryside and coastline. Here are our top 10 restaurant picks to enjoy while soaking up the city’s history.
One of Canterbury’s newest restaurants, Salt has already gained a solid reputation as a venue for reasonably priced, high-quality cooking since it opened in 2013. The menu changes daily, and the chefs use freshly foraged ingredients in their dishes. Head chef Emma has a Nordic background, and she uses this to inspire the menu, with purity of flavor being the main ethos of Salt’s dishes. The staff also work with a Wine Master to offer a seasonally changing wine and beer list to compliment the dishes. The interior utilizes original wooden features and furnishings and is lit by candlelight in the evening to give a comfortable, intimate feel.
