    Came to the drapers arms for my birthday in august for cocktails and I was AMAZED. Tried ordering a strawberry daiquiri however they had run out of strawberries so the lovely Izzy asked if I liked blackcurrant. Izzy made me the best drink I’ve ever had in my LIFE! Came back tonight and asked for the same and this time she put cherry and blackcurrant. Izzy, you are the best. I have never had anything remotely as amazing as what she makes!

    Really tasty food, thoroughly enjoyed it all! I had the sticky pig bao bun and egg fried rice, followed by the loaded cookie dough. Waiters were friendly too.

    Quick visit. Good selection of after dinner drinks. Staff were friendly. Tables outside on the cobbles. Pretty area of town.

    Overall a decent bar! Their drinks menu isn’t very extensive but it does the job if you’re after a few causal drinks. Would recommend the bottomless brunch - food is ok - but great value for money!

    Must have picked a bad Wednesday afternoon at 5.30pm. Waited over 10 minutes to get served although the bar was quiet. Seems they enjoy watching people waiting to be served while sitting on a bar stool using a computer. Eventually came to serve me at £29.50 for 4 drinks. Think you need to up your game a bit. We do have a choice in Canterbury and those that live here deserve better. Sorry but we won't be back in a hurry.
