Compasses Inn, Crundale

My old next door neighbour now runs a pub, it sounds great, we must visit. Here's what they have to say on their site:

The Compasses Inn is a welcoming and inviting historic old pub, traditionally and typically English, in the heart of the Kent countryside. Here in the garden of England Phil and Angela extend a warm welcome to everyone. The pub is ideal for families with its extensive, mature gardens and fun play area, plus child-friendly menu. Inside a cosy and nostalgic atmosphere prevails with local hops which embellish the bar, fine beers and wines along with oak beams, low ceilings, open fires and everything you would expect from a 15th century inn, including a resident ghost of a hooded monk, who you might meet by the fire on a winters evening! Excellent high quality home-made food is served along with comforting traditional pub dishes; all created using as much local and organic produce as possible and why not finish with a sumptuous, indulgent dessert? A lighter lunch menu is available for those of you who perhaps need a quality business lunch or just to catch up with a friend for a coffee and a sandwich or an afternoon tea. BBQs will be arranged as long as the great British weather permits. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome in the front bar area and outside there are places to tether your horse or pony under the shade of one of our trees. The Compasses Inn is not short on entertainment either, with clay pigeons shoots being organised on some weekends, quiz nights on the 1st Sunday of each month; open to all, bat and trap matches are held in the delightful garden during the summer months, and occasional live music performances.

This is part of my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite venues and 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 just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of The Day Today 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 get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
