A contributor to the forum posted about a disappointing anniversary meal they'd had at a local restaurant in January. And The Hermitage have chipped in, this story obviously tugged their heart strings like it did mine, but they've actually put their hand in their pocket and are offering the couple in question a free meal!
I must point out that The Hermitage were not the venue for the original disappointing meal, they're just doing their bit for the general good feeling within our town.
Isn't that beautiful?
Check out thehermitagerestaurant.com to see their menu, and if it was you that posted originally, please get in touch. If you're the proprietor of the original disappointing restaurant, perhaps you'd like to get in touch too and offer us all a free feed?
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
