Wow did Follies expand too quickly or what? For a while they had two in Folkestone, one in Hythe and one in Dover, and now there are none. It's a real shame, it was good pizza and mostly a nice place to go. We enjoyed the bargain midweek deal in Hythe fairly often, though I suppose we did not go there when it was full price. We have used both of the Folkestone venues quite a bit too. When the Harbour Arm opens up again for this season (easter weekend I suppose?) it will be without Follies. So the Harbour Arm company are looking for a new food outlet to go into that space, and also for a new bar to go into an exciting new space by all accounts.
You can apply to be one of the new businesses on the website. Good luck!
This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
