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.

At the recommendation of our hosts at Alkhanm Court, we had a wonderful supper at The Marquis. Great food, attentive service. It was a very pleasant evening.

First of all may I say that I believe this to be some of the best food that we have every consumed in an English restaurant so well done to the owners. Customer service was impeccable and whilst some of the prices were not what I was expecting, none the less the reflection of the value was in the pudding... More

We went for lunch - interesting set menu which only had two choices, but not bad for the price. Food was well presented, staff attentive. Three of us dined, the wine cost more than the set meal! - interesting.

Friday lunch - set menu, only two choices for each course. Apparently this is the case Mon-Sat lunch. Frankly it's cheap - £15.50 for three courses but and this is a big but, the portions are tiny. I do not have a big appetite yet after three courses I left hungry. I commented to my husband that his duck starter... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening with my 2 girlfriends. The cocktails were of reasonable value as was the food. There were about 5 main courses to choose from on the A La Carte dining menu. I chose Wild Sea Bass, courgette flower with langoustine mousse, squid ink macaroon, avruga caviarcame. It came beautifully presented and the individual tastes... More

Some like it rowdy, sum like a buzz, I like it quiet. Whatever your prefernece, if the atmosphere is great but the food not so, then the outing is a failure ! We have not been to the Marquis for some years, but needed a special place in the Folkestone area now the Sandbanks has been taken out of play... More

We always hope for more here as it's fairly local. The food is first class and probably deserves the prices - definitely more of a special occasion than regular pop-in. The service was good. It just lacks something that you find in a top class restaurant - there should be a buzz and perhaps it suffers here due to the... More

We went as a table of six for a celebratory lunch. Some went for the lunchtime menu whilst others plumped for the 4 course tasting menu. The waiters were very helpful and were able to swap a couple of the dishes around according to personal tastes without a fuss. All of the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We...

We had dinner there on our wedding anniversary. We both had the £55 six-course tasting menu, but not the accompanying matching wines which we thought were rather expensive (£30 for five 75ml glasses), instead opting for very good and reasonably priced wines by the glass from the standard list. The dining room was modern and comfortable. Most tables were occupied... More

We stayed for a night and had dinner in the restaurant. The room was perfectly pleasant, but did not exude comfort. The interior design, clearly a very expensive exercise at some point in the past, left a rather unwelcoming and far from cosy feeling. By contrast, the human welcome on arrival had been really excellent. Dinner was good, but almost... More
