New restaurants in Folkestone Harbour

New restaurants in Folkestone Harbour

I'm not really up to date with what's going on in Folkestone, though everyone does seem to expect me to know. Guess I set myself up a bit! Just found this on Twitter:

So I'm opening two restaurants next May and they are going to be on the harbour at....FOLKESTONE in Kent. One is a fish and chip shop with rooms which is the old smoke house and one is being built on the harbour as we speak. Need a name for the restaurant so ideas welcome!

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. 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 used to be updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, 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 anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
