user reviews of the Firkin Alehouse, Folkestone

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This is the 2nd Micropub in the same street but is much more of a true micropub with no phones or electrical devices allowed. If they are used then a £1.00 donation to charity is demanded.

4 ales on, Marble Ale from Manchester was on good form, there were also 3 real ciders on. A small place with only 4 high tables and around 20 stalls.
The owner serves the ales direct from the cold room just behind the main room and there is only 1 toilet which is shared between both sexes.

A friendly enough place but I have been in micropubs with more atmosphere than this one, it just seemed a bit flat to me. The whole idea is no phones encourages conversation, except the couple of locals didn’t seem like they could be bothered speaking to anyone and the owner was just as quiet.

Another tick from the 2016 GBG but as I say I’ve been in better.

I've always had a good pint in The Firkin and always felt welcome. Recently been voted branch pub of the year 2014 by the local CAMRA group
