A mile or two back from the coast at Dymchurch in West Hythe, this is a great little find.
Ideal for cyclists touring the Marsh, (cycle rack are provided next to a lovely little beer garden overlooking fields full of sheep.) or for those seeking something different from the tat of the pubs in nearby Dymchurch.
Food is the reason to come here. Locally caught fish, fantastic lamb, piping hot seasonal vegetables.... a great extensive menu. This is not mass-produced rubbish, so don't expect to be served within minutes. In six months of return visits, we have never been disappointed with the fare.
And a friendly personable welcome from the owners and staff.
A great find in the area.
This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when I first moved here in approximately '04. 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 stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
