Went for Lunch, not too busy so lacked a little ambience but very good food and service. Chairs were very heavy to pull up to the table, Wine was good and the Pinot Grigio we had wasn't too dear.

Excellent food and service. Would definitely visit again if in Folkestone. Waiting staff very relaxed and unintrusive but attentive. Value for money.
