The Guardian Review The Corner House

Picking up the paper on a Saturday morning and who should appear?

“Taking something basic and dialling up quality is one of chef Matt Sworder’s specialisms”

“what really impresses is Jane’s salad starter: a lemon tangle of leaves radish, pea shoots and roasted butternut, balanced with pesto and goats cheese”

What's Going on at The Corner House Canterbury?

Project Corner House Canterbury began last October when we acquired the Flying Horse in Canterbury, the second oldest pub in the city. With our planning permission on this Grade II listed building granted, we are now 6 weeks into the build. With the strip out complete it is now time to start building and restore this beautiful 16th Century Coach House.

As you can see below, we are not quite ready to serve you a chilled bottle of Chapel Down Curious Lager, however you can see progress is being made in creating the perfect space for our Corner House reception bar.
