The Corner House Canterbury

4 AA Silver Stars Restaurant with Rooms Canterbury

Summary

This 16th Century former Coach House overlooking the city walls has been recently refurbished. Stylish restaurant with lots of character and 3 beautiful en suite bedrooms with modern facilities, retaining their 16th century oak beamed charm. In the past the property was known as the Flying Horse, a regular haunt of the novelist Charles Dickens and legend has it, one of few places to have had a tunnel leading directly to the Cathedral.

Independently owned local family restaurant, headed up by Matt Sworder. Matt trained at Gordon Ramsey's La Noisette and has won many local awards at his Minster restaurant and continues his success here in Canterbury. Matt and his team are passionate about using the best local produce in creating innovative and tasty dishes to deliver a great guest experience.
