#740 - Canterbury Ale & Eats, Seattle (Capitol Hill) - 12/11/2008

Update: Canterbury Ale House closed March 27, 2022

When this 38-year-old medieval themed dive bar went under in 2014, two Capitol Hill bar owners, Mike Meckling (Neumos) and James Snyder (Sam's Tavern) took over the space, giving it a large-scale sprucing up and installing a fancy menu by the former chef of Madison Park Conservatory. That menu, which included tater tots topped with steak tartar, scotched quail eggs, and mostarda coated chicken liver toast, was eventually dialed back to resemble a broad and fairly typical contemporary bar menu. The bar has 30 taps and unfancy cocktails, while other sections now allow families, pushing it a bit more toward a 70s style old English themed restaurant.
