We regularly walk down to the harbour & there are lots of places eat, drink on your way to Sunny Sands beach or before walking back up the old High St into Folkestone

A picture perfect view of the harbour, lots of little quirky boats. We love the fountains in the middle of the square where all the kids enjoy playing. Two pubs overlook the square and there is several takeway bars, selling coffees, sandwichs, seafood, burgers, as well as the classical fish and chips. Great stop

Nice clean harbour. The best seafood around - go to Bob's fresh and such a good selection. Couple of nice pubs too. The ship is very nice. also a lovely cafe that is opened just before the harbour where you can sit out the back overlooking the harbour and watch the world go by

Ok, well I live fairly local and visit here all times of the year, the sea food is great and so are the cafés and huts, when the sun is out it is a lovely place, beach, food, pubs. When miserable weather it can be a 5 minute visit. It's clean, friendly and a lovely weekend jaunt

This is fish stall at the the harbour where one can get the finest seafood to eat. Everything you want is here. It's first class. If this were served in a London restaurant the price would be over £25.00 for a fish lunch. This is a third of the price. Loved it
