We have been several times to the Marquis in the past and have been very pleased. We have had the tasting menu as well as the a la carte. However, last night we were very disappointed. There was no tasting menu and the a la carte selection was not what I would expect from a restaurant which considers itself to... More

Our room was really beautifully appointed and included nice touches with drinks ,biscuits and a well a luxurious bathroom with a stand alone bath and shower. We were welcomed with a complimentary...

We went for the set menu- the Kentish Lunch, which was £19.95 for 3 courses. There are 4-5 choices per course. The food was excellent-- chicken livers with pickled walnuts, trio of lamb, gazpacho, salmon tartare, cod, chicken, risotto. Puddings were delicious too. All of the dishes were beautifully presented. Wines available by the glass, carafe or bottle. Prices cover... More

We took advantage of the Travelzoo offer of 3 course meal for 2 and were pleasantly surprised. Instead of the stripped back selections one sometimes gets with these offers we were given the normal lunch menu. A good selection of dishes which were carefully prepared and presented, which tasted good. The service was friendly and attentive and we all enjoyed... More

This is a difficult review to get right, judged on the food alone it would be five star, really super dishes. The restaurant thought falls down on the service. Given the prices (£150 for a meal for two with all the trimmings) we had been expecting a "fine dining" level of service and environment but sadly no. Waiting staff were... More

We had a voucher for afternoon tea and despite arriving earlier than the the time they advertise they accommodated us on the terrace as it was a beautiful afternoon. Well the tea was outstanding and the scones were enormous. There was more than two people could eat so took some cakes home.

Staying in Folkestone overnight we decided to venture into the countryside for dinner after finding The Marquis on Tripadvisor. It only took about tem minutes from central Folkestone, but negotiation of the roundabouts around the A20 could be a little confusing, thank goodness for satnav. The Marquis has clearly been recently renovated and we were shown into a very pleasant... More

Description
We hope you're feeling hungry... Look forward to robust, fresh flavors served with imagination and flair in east Kent's newest contemporary restaurant. Our Head Chef presides over heavenly menus that change regularly and use locally caught fish and locally sourced produce. The wine, beer and drinks list is also top notch. Old school... New World... Kent wines from Kent vineyards... Local real ales... Great taste is everything at the Marquis.
