Someone reports it being closed when they lived here in [year]1985[/year], but was visited by someone else in the [year=1970]1970s[/year] in this thread about the Mayfield Suite... I like to think there are still prawn cocktails and blackforest gateaux half eaten on plates on the tables.
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and things, and I know it was a handy reference 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 Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today 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.
