⬆️Rendezvous Street, Folkestone

More Tales From The Tap Room, I have it in front of me now, I won't reproduce it here though, you can get it in Ottakers. It dates from at least 1782, where it shows up on a survey, it was owned by the mayor's son and then run as a school before starting as a pub in 1841.

Ah, the building was actually replaced, in 1887. There are pictures of both the old and the new Prince Albert in the book. Seems to have been popular around 1990 as a bar called Bertie's too.

In one of these pictures you can see the Metronome next door, and that it's a bingo and social club called Rio. It was a cinema at some point.

If you find out any more about the place, please post it up here. I will check out your views online, we have quite a nice view across the town towards the Martello towers from our place in Earls Avenue.

This is my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events + voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. 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 now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye 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 contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
