Description: 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.

Stayed in Folkestone overnight and picked Chambers from the reviews on here. I was not disappointed, great welcome, superb service throughout, wonderful food and extremely good value for money. Big selection of ales and ciders which are needed to wash down the chillies!! Fab menu with varying degrees of "hotness" available. Loved the "ghost" ribs and wings, really got a... More

We went to the Chambers , Saturday eve 16 Aug, found the staff very nice and helpful, I liked the setup, downstairs, in what was probably the cellar. The food was good, try it one day, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. David and Vikki from Greenhithe
