A fairly quiet lunch time. I really like this place, and I decided to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and a second pint, together with a steak sandwich.

The last port of call on a Camra mini-bus trip. ~We were almost the only customers, and we sat in a relaxed atmosphere listening to Classic FM and enjoying some beers until slightly after the official 6pm Sunday closing time. I had a good chat with the tenants about beers and pubs.

This pub used to be closed on Mondays, so I was somewhat surprised to find it open when I was walking past. I decided to enter and have a pint and listen to the background classical music. There was a very interesting book on Folkestone pubs on one of the tables, I sat down and had a good read whilst enjoying an excellent pint. I did not note all the beers that were on sale.

Mid afternoon and a smattering of customers. Still a compfy place to sit and have a pint.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Broadside4.70AcceptableBit watery in condition, good flavour, and I like the rich fruit and not as good as condition as some of the other beers I had this lunchtime.

I had difficulty in persuading the rest of our group to come here because it is not on any of their lists. They loved it. Unfortunately I forgot to make a list of all the beers on offer.

Fully refurbished and re-opened in August 2009. I was told this was never as good as this in the old days! My first visit to what must be one of Folkestone's best kept secrets! Very enthusiastic for Cask Ale week. An all round excellant pub.

Just about my favourite pub in Folkestone now. Supporting the Cask Ale week as well with a dozen different beers over the week. I really like it here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00ExcellentJust a touch of green apple, but plenty of Harvey's house yeast and good bitter hops on the finish.
Hepworth - Pullman First Class Ale4.20GoodDeepish gold, lasting bubbly white head. Quite a nice bitter, some good yeast, very nice hop on finish. Biting. Moderate body with a surprisingly good bitterness on the finish.
