The Firkin Alehouse

Formerly a hairdressers, The Firkin Alehouse micropub has undergone a major transformation to make it the best venue in Folkestone to meet up with a few friends to enjoy a pint of real ale from the cask. The Firkin Alehouse is owned and run by Neil King.

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.
