The Canbury Arms is a family-friendly, good food pub that sits just round the corner from Richmond Park, so it’s perfectly placed for a day out. The team, led by the renowned owner Michael Pearson, ensures the welcome is always warm. The place looks great too, and attention to detail is second to none from the decor right through to the excellent food.

What is special about your business?

It's a wonderful place to visit whether for a light meal, a famous Canbury Burger (pictured below), a full-blown feast or a pint of real ale. The pub is something of a hidden gem, tucked away in north Kingston between the River Thames and Richmond Park. It has earned an enviable reputation for serving wonderful food, outstanding wines and superb real ales with attentive and friendly service. In recognition of our efforts we are proud to have been awarded several awards including Time & Leisure Magazine's Best Gastropub in London and the Surrey area in 2011 and in 2012 we were Commended as Best Family Restaurant.  

How does The Canbury Arms contribute to the local food scene in Surrey? 

Our Head Chef, Georgian Neagu, and his team create a delightful, seasonal menu using ingredients carefully selected from local producers and traditional British farms. The freshest fish, sustainably caught; native-breed beef, pork and lamb, expertly prepared and dry aged by master butchers. Our game is wild caught and indeed dishes may occasionally contain shot! Vegetables are sourced seasonally to ensure lower food mileage wherever possible. We bake our own bread daily using traditionally stone milled flour and pasta, and preserves and conserves are homemade wherever possible ensuring great flavour and full freshness. We offer five real ales (the selection changes regularly), including locally-brewed, Surrey ales such as Hog's Back Tea and Surrey Hill's Ranmore.
