Canterbury, pub

The Canterbury Hotel is located on the corner of Canterbury Road and Tincombe Street, in the inner west suburb of Canterbury. This heritage listed pub was designed by C. C. Ruwald and built in 1941. It was formerly known as the Hotel Canterbury and Inter War Hotel. The parapet with winged horses as decoration, reflects the proximity of Canterbury Racecourse.


  1. The building reminds me of a steamship. All it needs is balconies with white painted railings and a paddle wheel on the rear.

  2. Sandra is right! Art Deco suited both ships and pubs :)

  3. The horses are an interesting addition.

  4. Hi there! I could have sworn I've been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it's new to me. Anyhow, I'm definitely delighted I found it and I'll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!
