Directly opposite the Leas Cliff Hall so perfect for anyone watching a show or attending an event there. They have a great nightlife, bar staff are fun and they also have a restaurant and hotel. Played dance, chart and club music at the weekend until about 1am and do loads of events. Free entry all weekend and was the busiest bar in town. Photographs were taken all night and put on a big screen. Drinks deals with beers from £2.20 and cocktails from £2.50. Food was fantastic and they have a huge beer garden and heated terrace so smokers can sit outside even if it is cold and eat and socialise. Would definately visit again!!
Dress Code: No dress code
From outside it looks more of a club or a wine bar than a pub and not the sort of place I would normally choose to visit. However I was drawn in by the list of real ales advertised and was pleasantly surprised, where else can you find Theakstons Old Peculiar and Wadsworth 6X on adjacent pumps, and the quality was excellent. There are two bars with plenty of room and the place has an underground cavern feel to it. There looks to be regular live music at the weekends. An eclectic clientele mixes well, with the trendy young beautiful people drinking harmoniously alongside the real ale enthusiasts. CAMRA newsletters and local information leaflets are available and there's an unusual little alcove near the main bar where the telephone sits. A good place for a beer, and the food looked popular.
A real old tourist friendly pub which is hidden away on the Bayle near the churchyard. Serves Green King ales and guests and has a separate area for food. Nice old building, a library "snug" and some intriguing doors that you imagine could once have lead to secret passages. Closes in the afternoons.
This pub is prob one of the grottiest pubs around, but it is my local, so i thought i would show everybody what the pub looks like through my eyes after a few pints hahahahahahaha
Dress Code: You could prob go in stark boll*ck naked and nobody would notice hahahahahaha
This is a great place for a lovely cold beer on a sunday afternoon as well as night time, the views are fab too, overlooking Folkestones inner harbour. Its quite a popular pub in the summer catering for visitors and holiday makers looking for a tasty evening or sunday lunch
This i believe is Folkestones oldest pub, and is set in one of the most picturess and oldest part of Folkestone called the Bayle, with its superb church right next door and masses of oldie worldie charm. They serve some great beer and good pub grub too and its only just around the corner from the town centre, so you can get rid of your misses by sending her shopping while you spend the afternoon in the pub hahahahahahaha, hows that ladies
This is the Lifeboat pub and its been here for decades, it has a great atmosphere and is always popular with the visitors, its a bit out of the way but well worth finding it just for the beer hehehehehe
Dress Code: Anything goes
This is Folkestone's most popular night club, so it gets very busy on a fri and sat night. You have to be 21 or over to get in but its free entry before 9pm. On the downside the indigo is a very expensive place to have a good time, drinks are costly. So when you get home try and keep your hangover for as long as possible because its cost you enough money to bye the bloody club Hehehehe.
Dress Code: Smartly dressed people only (hard to find in folkestone Hahaha), no jeans and no sneakers,
This is my favourite place to get pissed mainly because of the prices. Wetherspoons is a chain of pubs who's main aim is to keep there prices down ( the fat cat brewerys hate this) so in folkestone where a pint of beer can cost as much as £2.60p this is well recommended. This one was once a church which was an eye sore in the town, and now has been restored and looks very impresive. So what are you waiting for go and get pissed Hahaha.
Dress Code: No special clothes required but it helps if you wear something Hahahaha. Even if its just a smile.
The leas cliff theater is kents premier venue and the only place where you can see great rock acts and legends do there stuff. since it was taken over by Appolo leisure we have started to get some really top name acts. including my favourite melodic rock band of all time ASIA , here are just a few more THUNDER, STATUS QUO, ERASURE, PAUL WELLER, REEF, THE HOLLIES, SLADE, 10cc, SQUEEZE. When you look at the photo you must think how the bloody hell can you get a band and all the people in that tiny place, well its actually built into the hillside so when you enter you go from the reception area below to a huge hall with balconys and bars overlooking the stage. I think the total capacity is around 2000 people. In the summer this is a great place to have a cool pint in the bar because of the wonderfull views over the channel.
Yes, there are zillions of Wetherspoons in the UK, but some of them are surprisingly unique. This one of them. It was reviewed here already, so I'll just add a new pic and a few comments. For starters, the church is beautifully restored. It's quite amusing to be in a "church" and hear the collected yammerings and occasional profanities of the drinking public. Very satisfying. There are two floors, with the upper deck a good choice for those who want a conversational volume. I met a few local women up there, and we had a good time drinking and tossing soiled table napkins onto the crowd below.
Dress Code: No dress code, but Americans, please: no khaki shorts and white sneakers. Really.
Used to be called 'La Parisienne' and 'Bonkers' fun pub, now refurbished and called 'Indigo' and 'Beach Bar'. Worth a visit for a good night out - a bit of a meat market, but not TOO bad!! A bit of a locals feel to it but fairly friendly. I heard recently that it's due to be pulled down for new building works in the near future so go there before it's too late!
Dress Code: Unfortunately no trainers.
