stayed here over the weekend and loved every second. welcoming, comfortable and friendly. the beer was wonderful and the bar well stocked. the family room we were in is a good size and comfortable, sleeping in a 4poster bed much like henry the viii was an experience!! we enjoyed food in the restaurant on friday evening, was busy but this did not take away the quality of the freshly cooked food. we also enjoyed the carvery on sunday before we left and that was amazing! best roast potatoes i have ever had! the staff were friendy, landlord was welcoming and cooked a brilliant breakfast and was able to tell us where in the area to visit. looking forward to taking the family back again sooner then originally planned!
This is my site The FG that I set up 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 so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for best venues + things, and I know it was a useful 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 always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
