As far as I am aware The JACKDAW has been closed. we heard that the pub was making about 7k a month profit but was not enough for the brewery and they closed it. I always found that their portions were far too big and there must have been a huge amount of wastage - I will miss their steak and stilton pie, it was the best.
5k: Five km, about three miles in old money.
This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I had been a regular visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events + voting for favourite places and things, + I know it was a handy resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just 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. My name is not Gerald BTW, 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 great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
