The Canbury Arms, Kingston upon Thames is a smart community pub with great fresh food, where eaters and drinkers alike are looked after with the same friendly and professional service. The pub has been a hub of the North Kingston community for many years, and re-opened its doors in March 2019 after a top to bottom refurbishment, which has created beautiful restaurant and bar areas, bright and airy private dining room and a lovely terrace for alfresco dining. We regularly add new dishes to our menus as well as daily specials, our drinks line up always has something new and interesting to try and we take great pride in our interiors, so that our guests can relax in beautiful surroundings.


Thank you for your continued loyalty for The Canbury Arms and above all our amazing team.

We will be re-opening from Monday 20th July and we can’t wait to welcome you back responsibly from this date. Booking enquiries can be made via our website.

Our team is working hard on the re-opening plans to ensure the safety of our people and our customers, so please follow us on social media for the latest information.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in the pub area and on the terrace (not in the restaurant) – please be aware that your pet may be a hazard to unsuspecting customers in a busy pub!
