26 The Stade
According to a posting in the "Folkestone Gerald":- "It has had more names than that in just the few years I've been here, it seems jinxed... It was "Nostalgia 50s Bar" a fifties themed bar just before it was "Euphoria" I think. I've only liked one of the incarnations in recent years, when it had the hexagonal pool table, The Front I think, but that closed about the time I moved here. At least it's still open (if it is still open) so many pubs locally are closing."
Toby Philpott has recently emailed me (27 May 2010) to say that it is now open as a Café. Before it was the "Three Mackerel" it was called the "Oddfellows Arms."
Originally a Fremlins and changed to Whitbread when they sold out to them in 1967.
To make head or tail of the above information originally the building was called the "Oddfellows' Arms." In 2001 the name changed to the "Front," this lasted under that name till 2004 when it became the "Nostalgia 50s Bar," this stayed with that name for two years till in 2006 was renamed the "Three Mackerel." From 2006 to 2008 it again changed name to "Euphioria." Now unfortunately closed.
Any further information or indeed photographs would be appreciated. Please email me at the address below.
