Went to Allotment in Dover last night and it was great! We booked a week in advance and gave notice that there was a vegan on the way and they were very accomodating. I had onion soup as a starter, and a spicy bean casserole for my main, both good. Between the other three they also had onion soup (but with croutons and other non vegan additions) and garlic prawns to start, and mains of beef in red wine, "crying" shoulder of lamb, and bass, and everyone agreed these were great too. We had a little bonus course of vegetables which was a nice touch, some lightly steamed and some pickled, very tasty. Puds were also very good. Looking forward to going back again!
This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only 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 just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, 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 GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
