Came here for a quick drink whilst staying in Folkestone but stayed for most of the evening! The landlady is lovely, so welcoming and friendly, we had some chips as we were a bit peckish and they were lovely. The pub itself is very cosy...More

Had a nice cold cider today while my family had a walk around the harbour in the rain not over crowded plenty of seats but it was only mid day its a shame kids could not come in but a lovely place to chill out

Always call in at the Ship when we're in town. Warm and friendly, with live music on Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. Chap on 21st October was an amazing fiddle player , if not a great singer!

We stayed in Folkestone recently and I discovered this little beauty, warm, friendly and a lovely atmosphere. There is a nice choice of real ales ( try the Doom Bar. Wow ). Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with a good group of people. Thank you.

We got caught on the beach in a storm. The very kind landlady welcomed 22 wet, sandy people in . She provided us with delicious fish and chips. It was hugely good value and service was quick and friendly. Highly recommend.

Drinks are a little on the pricey side but I loved this place. Beautiful view, lovely interior and friendly bar staff made for a really enjoyable evening. Just wish I'd tried the food too.

Lovely to find Thursday night entertainment in this quiet seaside town. Live music is rather nice here. Drinks are regular with nothing special and no real ale or sipping rum to be found. Beer is flat. Right by the water side, off a cobbled street....More
