One of my favourite places to eat when in Folkestone. Food is delicious, and the service / owners are great. My work colleagues also especially like going here for the real ales. I think I would feel comfortable eating here as a lone female too.

Our second visit to The Chambers was as good as the first. Bar staff very helpful, suggesting cider to suit my taste. Great range and variety of beers and cider. Hope to return again in the future!

Lovely paninis as usual. Shame they'd run out of smoked salmon. Coffee good but not the usual standard (a little weak for a coffee snob!)More

Description
The Chambers is at first glance a street level Coffee Shop but by far the biggest surprise lies underground where The Chambers bar takes over! Either take in the great vista of watching Folkestone town life go on around you as you enjoy your freshly roasted & brewed coffee, or venture through the Coffee Shop downstairs to the vast area that is our bar. Featuring TWO bars and lots of seating in large group areas or intimate nooks just for two, we offer lots for you to do & try. Our standard menu runs Mon to Sat & offers freshly made Mexican cuisine, whilst we also offer specials to present the best in local & seasonal dishes. We stock only Kentish Ales & Ciders & have featured in every CAMRA good Pub Guide since 2004, being regional pub of the year for 2008! Continental keg beers are very well represented too with Bitburger having a permanent place on the bar. Music is a BIG part of Chambers life & we have UK & international artistes EVERY Thurs night. Playing mostly blues, folk & acoustic originals, you'll NEVER be disappointed with the artistes playing at Chambers. Thurs night is a fine entertainment bet!! Check out our Facebook for details of up & coming players. Booking for meals advisable though not always essential.
