Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Old Buttermarket

Not wishing to end our tour of Kent's pubs in such a poor pub as the nearby City Arms, we moved on to this Nicholson's pub in the shadow of Canterbury's impressive (albeit scaffolded at present) cathedral.

We sat in the dark and atmospheric front bar of the pub. There were undoubtedly further spaces to the rear that we didn't explore.

On the beer front, Nicholson's outlets appear to have really gone downhill in recent years. I finally used the opportunity to sample my first St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale, as neither London Pride nor Doom Bar appealed. It was better than I'd expected. But I won't be rushing to seek out another.

A small Nicholson's pub right in the heart of the tourist area, with the main draw being outdoor tables in the market square. Inside is a smallish bar with flock wallpaper and brass fittings, with a larger dining room behind. On handpump were London Pride, Summer Lightning, Doom Bar and Old Rosie, plus the house brew from St Austell.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Buttermarket

Nicholson's pub with the name = the address, located in a prime position by the cathedral entrance. As traditional in appearance as you would expect, both outside and within, with a smallish bar at the front and a split-level arrangement of various dining areas further back with a separate servery. A (duplicated) bank of five handpumps can be found on each counter, dispensing the 'house' NPA, Doom Bar, Pride, Windsor & Eton Knight of the Garter and the seasonal Thornbridge Wild Holly (£4.35).
