About the Pub

Built in 1782 this popular local pub at the top of Dover Hill on the outskirts of Folkestone and the North Downs Way and adjacent to the Battle of Britain memorial.

The pub is convenient for the port of Dover with accommodation for motor homes and serves good value meals using local ingredients, were possible including wholesome roasts of Sundays

Speciality teas and coffees are available in addition to national beers

The pub name was popular just after the English Civil War appealing to returning soldiers and sailors returning home and took and named pubs.

The pub was popular with coaches and travellers until the A20 was built bypassing Folkestone to dover, but only a short diversion from the junction with the B2011 towards Folkestone.

Another possible origin of the pub name because of the constant battles with local fishermen in the Dover area when the local men would retire here to regroup.
