I knew I recognised the picture of the landlord on one of the websites promoting the opening of Potting Shed in Hythe, it's him and her from The Britannia on Horn Street. So I guess that means they are no longer there?
The Potting Shed was previously a cafe / bistro and now it's a nice micropub, half a dozen barrels behind the bar and some seating. I met some local CAMRA members in there which was nice, I will try and get along to the next of their gatherings.
I look forward to my next visit!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of enthusiasm 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 others who were thinking of 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 always thought it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper 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 great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
