Amazing atmosphere, cheap and great food, really good social hangout before heading out to the clubs or just to chill out. Also everyday there is a different event, especially love Sunday pub quiz with a different theme every week. Also the staff is really friendly and helpful.

Really good place for drink and food. Friendly staff. Good events. Food and drink is a little pricey for students, but still good quality. Pool and ping pong Could do with a jukebox-would be a nice touch

There is always something happening at the penny; karaoke, deals on food or bands performing making the atmosphere perfect for students who want a night out with food. Food at the penny is relatively cheap and the portions are larger than normal, therefore perfect for students on a budget! There is also a huge variety of drinks suited to everyone’s personal taste.

First things first you will be lucky if you find this jewel in your first year because it is quite out of the way. If you are a bus user, then Google maps will probably get you there with minimal walking involvedbut if, like me, you rely on your feet to get places, get ready for a confusing trip til you get your head around how the city works. At the edge of town, close to a large Sainsbury's and an amazing Turkish restaurant, Penny Theatre is perfect for a pub night with a large group of friends. Different from your typical spoons, the place has character, with board games, pool tables and friendly staff. Not only that, but they have many music nights, some so good that you actually pay to attend! The beer garden is large, in fact the pub is one of the largest in Canterbury and you can always book a table for you and your mates. But the best thing last, they have amazing deals all week long! From 3pound cocktails on a Saturday night to 3pound chicken wings it truly is the students' dream come true. Cannot recommend enough.

The penny theatre is an amazing retro funky bar that is made for students. Their drinks are unique to the bar, such as buckets of cocktails and cocktails in a car, and are very well priced. The venue is decorated playfully and there is plenty of space so it never feels too overcrowded. There is an event on every night which also entails drink deals. For example, they do karaoke and retro gaming night that has £3 cocktails. They also do amazing food and snaks at amazing deals dependent on the night, 25p Cheros and chicken wings for example.

Amazing place, good vibes, cocktails are decent, I went to watch a champion's league game and the atmosphere was friendly. Outside area is quite large and serves as a cool smoking area. Overall great place.

At the first year of uni I lived very close to penny theatre but for some reason hardly ever went. Now I go at least once or twice a week. I enjoy the variety of events. My friends love to go watch the local bands play there. Music isn't really my thjng so I prefer going to the quiz which is always busy - although have never won. Food and drinks are reasonably priced.
