Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We have had the pleasure of drinking at Firkin 1, 2 & 3 and there is nowhere in Folkestone or anywhere nearby to compete with quality and value for money. The ale is always of the highest, freshest quality along with ciders, wines and some more exotic cans which my 20 year old son chose to sample when he visited. Nowhere better in Folkestone, ambience is great - we love it as have chatted to many people over the years and have made great friends as a result of the ethos of the place - socialising which is what a pub should be! Excellent value for money too as pints average around £4 or cheaper!

    Friendly bar with good selection of beers and ales. Dog friendly and excellent nachos, enough to share to accompany drinks. Very friendly and helpful service

    I took my mum here on Mother’s Day! It was a lovely atmosphere and the Jazz band is a great touch. The restaurant itself is quaint and pretty. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

    There were a few things that could have been improved upon but the staff quickly sorted them out. The Camembert that came out was cold so it was not soft on the inside as it should have been. The staff went and changed this pretty quickly. They could have given fresh paper menus as the ones they gave us were covered in oil and crumpled. Nonetheless, it did not overshadow the experience as it was lovely.

    This was booked via an other person in our group, there were 13 of us all turning up on motorbikes, i mention this because some venues can bit a bit weary of groups of bikers, however this was not the case here, table was pre booked and ready for us upon are arrival. service and hospitality was very good, the young lady who dealt with us was great, no mistakes with the orders, very friendly and had it all under control. nothing was to much trouble. The food was good and presented well considering the size of thge group.

    We popped into here for a last beer before taking the Eurostar the next morning.

    The beer range was good, and kept in good condition.

    Service was friendly, and there was live music, but there was still quiet areas to sit if you wanted a quiet pint.

    Good Pub.

    We went twice in the evening for drinks before it was taken over by the L&B group. It was a very cosy, traditional pub so we're keen to see what it will like now - been to all their venues except Punch & Judy.

    I have been thinking how to give a balanced review, as my experience was not great. I have given 3 stars as the other meals at our table were ok. The staff are lovely and friendly but the service was very very slow. There were 4 of us for lunch on a Monday, so not peak time. We ordered drinks, and a very long time later, we asked if they were coming, to be told that the waitress had forgotten to put the order through. Fair play to them in that they were honest, and took the drinks off the bill. And we got our drinks. Three of us ordered lemon sole the "catch of the day" I believe that was how it was described to us. Two fish were fine. Mine was inedible as the flesh was mushy. I returned it, the chef apologised and cooked another one, which wasn't much better and also returned. Another thing they took off the bill. The explanation from the Chef, as to why the fish was like that, didn't really make sense to us. I was offered an alternative but had no appetite for it by then, due to my experience.
    We had come down from London for a special meal, having eaten there before. It's fine not being charged but a restaurant specialising in fish should be able to get it right.

    This review is much overdue. I went to the Bouverie Tap in January this year for quiet birthday drinks and was taken aback by the warmth of hospitality and service from the staff. It was a fun night sitting by the bar, sampling some of their bar food and ending with chili vodka shots (a must try!)

    Atmosphere was unassuming, welcoming and relaxed. Decor combines some rare signs and finds from all over the world.

    We ended up leaving with a jar of their homemade chilli jam which has gone down a treat!

    A friend who is a regular here suggested I try this pub for lunch today as there is the two meals for £10 on offer on Tuesdays. I had a chilli con carne with salad & garlic bread, it was delicious and great value. Decided to have a dessert which was a nice apple crumble and cream. Very nice atmosphere.

    In the past we'd steered clear of the Providence in Sandgate. Not any more! The new owners have transformed this historic old pub and now serve the most delicious food and a selection of wines etc at a very reasonable price. The simple but smart makeover adds to the warm, inviting atmosphere of this most traditional of pubs and the service is both friendly and efficient. Having rediscovered this pub, we've now become 'regulars'. It's a great addition to the up and coming Sandgate 'scene' and we thoroughly recommend it .
