Earliest 11th Oct 2013 (Name from)

Kipps Alehouse

Open 2019+

11-15 Old High Street


01303 246766


Mentioned as almost a micro pub and opened on the 11th October 2013 in the place of the "Totally Jazz" restaurant and Bar. The description being given as "nearly a Micro Pub" being used as it is larger than the original and traditional Micros and also sells a number of wines.

Information taken from their blog states the following:- "The basic principle for Kipps' Alehouse is to provide gravity poured cask real ales, a wide selection of wine, and to provide support to small cider producers as well as stocking the old favourites.

In addition we will stock specialty beers and lagers. The latter, a much maligned product among the general micro-pub movement, has gained such an appalling name over recent years that we thought it time to put the clock back and look both nationally and internationally for superb bottled and cask lagers. Served in the right way, in the right glass, why should the simple lager not play a role in the revival of small specialised drinking establishments?


Further news appreciated.


From the By Lauren MacDougall, 21 December 2019.

The 33 pubs in Kent you have to drink at in 2020 according to CAMRA.

In total Kent has heaps of pubs listed in the guide and, while 33 of these are new entries, others have appeared in previous editions of the guide.

A total of 33 pubs from around Kent make up the new entries that feature in the 2020 edition of the Good Beer Guide.

The guide is produced annually by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), the independent guide to the best boozers in the UK that is researched by unpaid and independent volunteers nationwide.

Tom Stainer, CAMRA’s chief executive, said: “For nearly five decades, the Good Beer Guide has been a comprehensive guide to the UK’s breweries, their ales, and the best outlets to find them in across the country.

“What makes the Guide unique is that all the entries are compiled and vetted by a huge volunteer team, based around the country. We work hard to ensure that all areas of the country are covered and, unlike with some competitor titles, inclusion in this book is dependent only on merit, not on payment.

“The Good Beer Guide has always had an important role in acting as a barometer of the beer and pub industry. We believe information gleaned from the Guide is absolutely vital in the drive to save our pubs from closure and campaign for policies that better support pubs, local brewers and their customers.”

This pub is included in the 2020 list.

Kipps' Alehouse, Folkestone.

What the guide says: "An alehouse following the general principles of a micropub, serving real ale directly from the cask, usually including a Kentish ale, an award winner, and another unusual beer from around the country, sourced from independent microbreweries."
