Closing in on the last few stragglers in Kent now, starting in feisty Folkestone.
If you want to see what modern Folkestone looks like, look at Duncan’s post here and my visit just before Lockdown.
The Bouverie Tap, which sounds worryingly French, is in the more traditional west side of town.
I know it says Tap, but it’s very inviting, isn’t it ?
Upmarket, quirky, and attracting a mixed crowd of Folkestone folk on Sunday evening, drawn by posters for air raids on Helsinki.
Not sure quite what brings folk out of their houses on Sunday when so much else closes early; perhaps the promise/threat of Bass.
Pubs really shouldn’t be allowed to have Bass signage if they don’t sell it. The Hopdaemon Incubus was pretty good, and selling fast though, and in October 2021 that’s as good as you can hope.
Wish I could tell you more, but my notes look like this.
