Welcome to The Phoenix

The Phoenix pub is situated on the corner of Old Dover Road and Cossington Road, between the County Cricket Ground and Canterbury city centre. A Free House, The Phoenix always endevours to stock eight real ales, including one mild. Food is available lunchtimes and evenings, there is outdoor seating on our beer terrace, a covered smoking area and a patron's car park to the side.

Bob & Nilla Griffiths are now the licensees, having also been running the Rose & Crown in St.Dunstans for over three years and now transferring their attentions to The Phoenix. While both now are retired, Bob was previously in medical sales whilst Nilla ran two hairdressing salons. Last owning pubs thirty-four years ago in Rochester, including The Don Cossack, they now turn their attentions and fondness of real ale to one of Canterbury's best known hostelries, well loved amongst cricket fans, visitors to the city and locals alike.

Bob's family were in Pubs all his life and he learnt his cellar skills from his step father who apart from being a Licensee had also been a dray man for twenty-five years, and so there was nothing you could tell him about beer, (one quote being "there are no such thing as bad beers, just some better than others").

Christmas menu from December 10th

Some festives ales on at The Phoenix this month :

sleighbellEverards, "Sleighbell" : (ABV 4.5%)
“distinctive winey taste”

William Everard brewed the first pint of Everards ale in 1849, and stated “No effort shall be found wanting in the production and supply of genuine ale of first rate quality”. One hundred and sixty-five years later, they are delighted to bring back the ever popular Sleighbell for the festive season. This warming beer is rich and comforting with a distinctive winey taste and a wonderful ruby colour. Brewed with cascade hops to make a flavoursome pint, Sleighbell is just what your want on these cold, dark nights.

figgy puddingWantsum Brewery, "Figgy Pudding" : (ABV 4.5%)
“spicy and caramel nosed”

East Kent's own Wantsum Brewery are a regular source of some of our most popular seasonal ales. From them for Christmas comes the appropriately named Figgy Pudding, a dark chestnut coloured bitter, with soft toasted malt flavours enhanced by the addition of figs and black sultanas blended with spicy and caramel nosed hops.
