The Mooring Cafe & Bar

Opening Hours:

10 am - late Monday - Saturday

10 am - 4 pm Sunday

A cosy, Bohemian cafe during the daytime, an Art Deco speakeasy in the evening, a warm & welcoming venue always! Canterbury's hidden gem overlooking the river Stour. 

Our friendly staff are delighted to welcome four-legged customers as long as their owners are well-behaved.


We serve a wide range of teas and locally roasted coffees prepared by our expert baristas. We also don't charge extra for decaf or dairy alternatives.

Our kitchen is open until 5 pm every day, serving hearty all-day brunch, light lunches, home-made classics & sharing platters. For a sweet treat, why not try our fabulous cake made by Canterbury's own Beardy Baker, or indulge yourselves in an afternoon tea? 

We offer a variety of deals and special offers, including:

  • Coffee & Cake Deal: Any tea, coffee, or hot chocolate with a slice of cake or pastry for just £6.
  • Get Work Done Deal: Unlimited tea, coffee, or hot chocolate while you study with us for just £10.
  • Concession Discount: Students, Over-60s, and Blue Light cardholders receive 10% off our menu.
