It's next door to The Metronome isn't it? I'll dig out the history that I have... there's a book you can get in Ottakers called More Tales from the Tap Room and it has a history of local pubs / hotels of the past...
This is it isn't it?

I didn't just take that btw, I am not following you! I snapped it a few months back when it went up for sale, I was thinking the front of the pub might be changed more, and it would be lost forever.
This is my site The FG that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to 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 best venues and things, + I know it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper 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 something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
