Formerly a hairdressers, The Firkin Alehouse micropub has undergone a dramatic transformation to make it the best venue in Folkestone to meet up with a few friends to enjoy a pint of real ale straight from the cask.
The Firkin Alehouse, like all micropubs offers a warm friendly environment without the interruptions of music, TV, mobile phones, and children. The Firkin Alehouse doesn’t just serve ale, local ciders and wine are also available, as are soft drinks for the designated drivers.
The Firkin Alehouse is owned and run by Neil and he certainly knows what it takes to serve good ale. In a former life he was originally trained and worked as a chef and more recently he has worked for JD Wetherspoon, managing pubs in Canterbury and Ashford and he was also the landord of The Telegraph in Deal. Whilst working in Deal, he came across the concept of the micropub whilst visiting The Just Reproach and loved the idea so much that he decided to try it for himself. As they say... the rest is history!
