Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Parrot

Claims to be Canterbury's oldest pub (indeed, one of its oldest original buildings), and despite a makeover or two it retains some character in the 'T'-shaped bar and seating areas in three corners. So, very traditional in appearance - both inside and out - but in other ways quite modern as a 'Pub & Dining' establishment. Although lacking in obvious branding, it is a Shepherd Neame house and I found Master Brew, Whitstable Bay, regular Spitfire (£3.90) and Spitfire Gold plus Bishop's Finger from five of six handpumps.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Parrot

A Shepherd Neame pub, which dates from the 14th Century and is the oldest pub in Canterbury. The exterior of the pub is very inviting and the interior is equally as impressive. The interior consists of low ceilings, open Jacobean oak beams, flagstone floors and open fires. Six pumps, all in operation, we went for the Shepherd Neame Spitfire, which was well kept and presented.
