The building can be traced back to early 1800s and originally called the "City of Canterbury." By 1865 the words "Old" had been added to the name, probably to differentiate it from the other "City of Canterbury" operating at St. Thomas Hill.

Apparently the pub used to give out free breakfasts to people who were going to be hanged just outside the pub on the gallows that used to stand there till the last hanging in 1799.

Today it is owned by Shepherd Neame and runs under the name of "Old City Bar," the name being changed after 1988, but I do not have a more precise year than this yet.
