Review of Capel le Ferne by Jeremy and Penny Holme on February 17th, 2008
A spectacular part of the Kent coast has just lost a frequent visitor. Every week our little family visited and enjoyed a mug of tea and sandwich at the cliff top cafe with the wonderful view of our English channel. We told our friends and families what a great place Capel is and that there's the all important cup of tea and sit down available for tired legs at the cafe. To our dismay, bewilderment and huge sadness we found today having sat down that a key member of our family is no longer allowed to visit. He always had a drink, a sausage and a sit down to watch the world go by but not for no reason we can think of he's banned! He never caused any problem or mess and has been discriminated purely for the fact he has 4 legs and has fur! There was only one sign we could see which is an obvious recent addition and we were treated as leppers despite the business we have brought this place over the years. How very sad. We have no idea of the reasons for this decision, whether petty minded councilors or the owners but they have driven us away and we will not be visiting Capel again and we will tell friends and family to stay away too.
