hello pauly, the clarendon is one of the best Folkestone/environs pubs. In my youth c. 1992-1994 the place to be for the indie type crowd in Folkestone however was The Sandgate Hotel down the hill. It was a proper scruffy dive bar/pub with a cracking jukebox and bands on. pics from NME etc all over the walls.
This is my site The FG that I built in a frenzy of excitement when we first moved here sometime in '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful resource for others who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just 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 always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today 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 anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
