Would have scored very good but the menu prices made me down grade score to an average. I enjoyed visit and staff were friendly. Most mains on the menu were nearly £20 which I did think was expensive. The atmosphere was nice and I would probably visit again.

I have been a regular off and on since 1994 I love Stuart's range of real ales and I have good pub grub there at least once a month. Stuart is an acquired taste but he is really harmless. The pub has wonderful old world charm.

Stella £3.90 pint. I think the most I have ever paid! BUT, chilled branded glass, nice view, friendly staff. I suppose you pays your money, take your choice.

Ideal location, this excellent pub is always very friendly. They now do bar food which is really good value for money, and well presented. The staff are always friendy and the live music at weekends is great.

This is not where you might expect to find very good, freshly cooked Thai food, but we did. This is an traditional pub, on the old harbour front and frequented by fishermen for many decades. Good selection of real ales, occasional live music and good pub atmosphere. Not necessarily a place for families or a romantic dinner, but for some... More

Went there recently with a few colleagues. We all had main courses and the food wasn't that great. My seafood tagliatelli was really bland - overcooked. However - the real ales were good and the staff were really friendly The others all seemed to think the food was ok

Often visit this Pub when we are down at Folkestone, they have cheery polite staff and a good selection and variety of beverages to choose from. Outside the pub or on the benches on the harbour side is a good place to watch the world go by on a nice day with a cold beer in your hand. Now I... More
