Serving sublime British fare at lunch time and delightful Pan Asian cuisine in the evenings, Blean Tavern is a British style pub and restaurant with a twist.
The charming Canterbury pub and restaurant can be found on Blean Road and is surrounded by acres of Blean Countryside, making it the perfect place to escape and enjoy a fabulous dining experience.
For those in the midst of exploring the spectacular surrounding area are advised to stop by and partake in one of exquisite lunch time options, where traditionalists will rejoice in a food choice that really does provide some of the best that Britain has to offer.
These include the traditional British fish and chips, a cod fillet coated in Doombar beer batter and comes with Blean thick hand cut chips, green peas and a tartare sauce, and a gourmet beef burger topped with Monterey Jack cheese, onion rings and vine tomatoes. The croque monsier, a pane ham and cheese sandwich, is also available for the gourmet without much time on their hands.
For diners that are looking for a pleasant evening out in a casual atmosphere where they will be served an array of exquisite dishes by a warm and welcoming team of staff, the Pan Asian menu at Blean Tavern could be just the ticket. Warm the palate up with a starter from a selection that includes a Japanese delicacy in the tempura king prawn number, which is served with a sweet soy dip, and the salmon tikka skewer, an Indian favourite, and be suitably prepared for the tantalising flavours to come.
Now that the appetite has well and truly been whetted, it’s time for the main event. The sumptuous slow cooked pork belly in an Adobo style sauce allows for a taste of the Philippines, whereas the beef rendang is a wonderful Indonesian number, and guests that relish all things Chinese will certainly appreciate the confit duck leg, which comes complete with sautéed vegetables and a glorious oyster sauce.
Whether it’s for lunch or dinner, a catch up between friends or a family day out, Blean tavern is fit to cater for all – and with the fantastic tastecard discount, it comes at great value too.
