The Chambers is at first glance a street level Coffee Shop & roasters 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 our weekly Specials board runs from Tues lunch through to Sat night & presents 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 alongside German black lager & weiss beer on draught. 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.

I just love The Chambers. It's a real asset to Folkestone. Went for lunch on Saturday, had my personal fave - the steak enchilada - smokey roasted peppers, generous quantities of tender steak, topped with the perfect amount of cheese. So delicious. My boyfriend went for the rump steak - also superb with excellent sides of spiced corn on the... More

Went for coffee here yesterday to avoid the hustle and overpriced 'chain' coffee shops. Was pleased to see gluten free cake and shortbread advertised. Cake was cherry and coconut and was moist, not dry like usual gf cake. Will definitely be back again soon. Great staff and service too.

We had a chicken and a beef fajitas and they were both excellent. They also filled up the sides dish with no fuss. The wine was reasonably priced and also... More

visited on Sat evening as couldn't find any town pubs, had to go downstairs to the cellar area which always gives me the colly wobbles but we stayed for a few drinks - there were not many people in but those that were, took the time to say hello. Went back on Sunday for a meal to be told, we... More

After completing our christmas shopping my wife and I went into The Chambers for a coffee, cake followed by a nice pint. The staff were welcoming and the seating was comfortable, fresh coffee within minutes hot and tasty what more could we want. Prices are very reasonable look forward to returning soon.

In Folkestone overnight we picked this from the Camra good beer guide and the tripadvisor reviews confirmed this was the place for us to head to. After a 5 hour journey from Sheffield we arrived a little disheveled, hungry and thirsty and were made to feel very welcome. The Mexican food (fajitas and enchiladas) was good quality, tasty and just... More

We ate the The Chambers on a Friday night when the place was packed. The noise was a little uncomfortable at times, especially for my autistic daughter, however the food and the staff more than made up for it. Excellent value food and amazingly accommodating staff who pulled out all the stops for my daughter's food fads. Will be going... More
