We stayed in Folkestone recently and I discovered this little beauty, warm, friendly and a lovely atmosphere. There is a nice choice of real ales ( try the Doom Bar. Wow ). Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with a good group of people. Thank you.

We got caught on the beach in a storm. The very kind landlady welcomed 22 wet, sandy people in . She provided us with delicious fish and chips. It was hugely good value and service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend.

Drinks are a little on the pricey side but I loved this place. Beautiful view, lovely interior and friendly bar staff made for a really enjoyable evening. Just wish I'd tried the food too.

Lovely to find Thursday night entertainment in this quiet seaside town. Live music is rather nice here. Drinks are regular with nothing special and no real ale or sipping rum to be found. Beer is flat. Right by the water side, off a cobbled street....More

We just stopped here for a drink. It is on a street along the water with some other pubs and restaurants, a good place for a stroll.

A walk along The Stade in the sunshine just happened to coincide with lunch time. The Ship was offering a Fish and Chip lunch so it seemed rude to refuse. The meal was excellent, well cooked and well presented. I've added it to my list...More
