5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Fabulous Micropub situated in the heart of Folkestone, serving a selection of local ales, ciders and soft drinks. Great for a nostalgic pint like no other in Folkestone, friendly locals and top quality service and presentation. 5 Stars

“Fantastic real ale in Folkestone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

Wow, more or less stumbled across this place, really enjoyed it. Selection of cask ales and ciders. Small room with a nice atmosphere and friendly welcome. There are also chunks of delicious local cheeses available to nibble with your drinks. Can't wait to go back.

“A great Micropub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

A micro pub with great real ale, cider and wine. The beer is served straight from the barrel. When we went the beers were all local ales. All were served by a young landlord with great knowledge of his beers. No food except for the best of kent cheeses, crisps and assorted snacks. The bar is small and intimate and has very friendly clientele. If you are a real aale drinker then this is a place to visit.
