A detailed description together with a couple of pictures can be found in "More Tales from the Tap Room" by Martin Easdown and Eamonn Rooney.

The pub was indeed called the Warren Inn and was open from 1875 until 1892. It ceased to be a pub in 1892 after a number of people were caught drinking out of hours. The Earl of Radnor, on whose land it was built ordered it closed. The building enjoyed a short revival as a tearoom until it's demolition in 1924.

Hi all,
      Baking in the sun on the grass above East Wear Bay at Folkestone last week, someone told me that there used to be a pub in the area - just below Martello Tower No. 1.   It was apparently called the Warren Inn.  Anyone know anything about it, or got any pictures??  Could have done with a pint (shandy, of course) but the pub was definitely long gone.

Cheers,
Keith
