Had a dreadful dinner at a pub on the way to Dungeness, The Ship in Romney Marsh. It wasn't meant to be a high-falutin' fancy gourmet extravaganza, but it was meant to fill a gap, and it failed in this meagre task.
Maybe they were busy, so we could let it slide that it took them an hour to bring us two plates of chili, a burger, a ploughmans, and a baked potato with beans (the only vegan thing I could make off the menu), but the food we got was very poor. One of the chilis was clearly the last burnt scrapings of the pan, it shouldn't have been let out of the kitchen, and the other one (which looked OK) was not good, and left uneaten. My potato was shrunken to the size of a golf ball, I guess through being microwaved to much. We got a refund, but no apology or alternative, and were left hungry.
The pub itself was nice, I had a good pint of 6X, and the place is decorated with artwork related to the Doctor Syn2 novels, which were written by Russell Thorndike2 in that very pub. So, a nice drink, and a bit of history, but I would recommend you get some crisps before you go in.
A guide to eating and drinking in Folkestone, Sandgate, Hythe, + the surrounding area... TOP ranking result for Folkestone Restaurants, if you're not mentioned here who knows you're there..? All independent, unpaid, and not intended to be spiteful...

This is my website The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved here sometime in 2004. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to.
