Had a meal at Sandgate Hotel last night with two friends. The service was slow though the staff were very pleasant and chatty. My friends both enjoyed their main courses - though they arrived an hour after we arrived! My meal however was a real disappointment. The saute potatoes and courgettes were beautiful but as the menu stated that all our food is freshly prepared I was rather surprised to find the centre of my vegetable and dolcelatte tart was still frozen! The waitress took the price of the bill but I had to come home and raid the fridge as I was obviously still hungry! Wine good and venue stunning but a real shame about the food.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues 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 just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
