My new favourite pub. My husband and I have been all over the UK staying at inns and seeking out old worldy country pubs, this one was the best hands down. (I'm American and he's from London so it's been kind of game to find the best.) The pub itself is the most well preserved pub I've ever been in. It has a big open hearth with a real fire, candles, period furniture, welcoming proprietors, and well cooked food. It was fantastic and we will go back again and again. Only 1 hours drive from Southwest London. My husband and I used a 2005 guide of to find this pub. Any changes occuring from change in ownership would have happened by now. I had never been here before but after reading others reviews, I do not know what some people are complaining about. 10 out of 10!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) 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. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
