    There is a pub at the entrance to the Park and Ride.

    @Jac Sprat Yup, nice pub with nice food (Southern prices :D)
    You will see the pub as you turn into the entrance to the P&R. It's about a 3 minute walk from where you park the MH. You will also pass the Loos at the bus stop on your way. Handy for a 'sit-down toilet' to save using the MH loo. These toilets are only open during operating hours of the car park, so don't wait until it's pub chucking out time! :D.

    Use it all the time but it closes at 8.00 p.m. (you can still get out if necessary) and I understand you can't get in on a Sunday. Never seen it anywhere near full but suggest you don't leave it until last-minute, especially at weekends and in season.

    Always have a meal at The Gate although it's not the cheapest. Provided the P+R is operating you can use it for free to go into Canterbury for a better choice of eateries.

    what is the payment system on this aire. do you obtain a ticket when you enter and pay at the machine just prior to leaving. If so for instance is arrived at 5pm and left at 8am does it ask for £4 in payment . IE £1 for arriving after 4pm and £3 for the 24hrs after midnight.

    sounds like a bargain if you are traveling that way and want a stop over...
