Saturday 15 Augusr 2009, I stopped in at the George for a bite to eat with my wife and 7 month old baby. Was advised restaurant not open untiol 6 . . .no problem. Sat down to enjoy some real ale. Pub was very busy, with only 1 poor chap runing the place, name of Callum. He said he would come over and take our food order as soon as his shift helper started at 6. The guy who was due to start at 6 had been sitting at the end iof the bar for some time with 2 of his friends. At 6pm, he left, and came back at 10 past 6 with a bag of mcdonalds! He sat down and proceeded to eat. When Callum said "Come on mate, we have people waiting here!", the other guy, name of Alex, shouted that "...I have to have me dinner..!!" . . then proceeding to finishing his burger and get dressed whilst behind the bar! The issue is the arrogamnce of this indiviudual, and his complete lack of care for the dozen or so customers who were waiting for drinks, not counting myself and my wife who were starving! I have tried repeatedly to get hold of "Tom" the elusive manager, but as yet to no avail. The management needs to do some severe training!!!!
This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for others 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 becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this 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 anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
