I've only been to Tim's twice, the first time was just to have a quick glass of wine and see what the place was like - I left about 4 hours later, as relaxed as a newt, vowing that the next time I was in Folkestone I'd actually book a table! About 3 months later (Mar 07) I did as I promised. My friend and I turned up at 7.30 and the place was fairly quiet - bonus for us as we ordered before the rush, and what a rush! By 8.30 the place was packed, the atmosphere was superb, the wine free-flowing (and very nice) but the food surpassed it all! We had a sea food paella and it was totally delicious!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for best venues and stuff, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving here. 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 becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a fake newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
