“papas fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

as jam makers now living and working the other side, we rely on Papa's after a days
damson picking in Kentish orchards. Fresh cod falling from the fork in juicy flakes,
crunchy light batter, chips that generally have some dry rustle about them ....
everything cooked to order. Quibbles ... the factory sauces, the tea by the cup not
the pot. Service, always sweetly concerned to soothe our sweaty brows, and a surprising
range of newspapers on tap, from the Kentish Herald to the US Herald Tribune.
Pigging out on the extra large cod has to date inhibited a finishing twirl round their Spotted Dick
and custard, but that day will doubtless dawn ....

“Fish n Chips Fix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

One of the main reasons to visit the UK is for fish n chips. Lucky that hubby had already done the reccie, so we knew that we could step off the boat and head straight to Papas for Fish n Chips. This was my first time and I was not disappointed by my huge (although supposedly medium portion) slab of flaky cod, encased in crispy batter accompanied by a mound of golden handcut chips (of which I ate about an eighth of). Even enjoyed my styrofoam cup of mushy peas on the side (though northerner husband had his poured all over). We dined takeout style on one of the 2 tables on the pavement, basking in the english sun and acclimitising ourselves to hearing english (and polish) again. Ah, its good to be alive!

“A fantastic meal!! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stayed in Folkestone for the weekend as we were attending the Lydden Hill Drift Championship racing and wanted a meal Saturday night. This was a fantastic place to eat, lovely staff and great food and also not expensive! We highly recommend this to others. It was also spotless and service was great! The caramel icecream was very good on the dessert menu so I am told by my husband and son who didn't even give me a taste! Thank you Papa's for a great meal :)

“First Class Fish and Chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Excellent Fish and Chips, well cooked and generous servings, good value. We arrived during the lunch period, half the tables were already occupied and the two staff were busy serving, but our order was taken quickly, drinks arrived promptly and there was non delay in the food arriving.
Two generously loaded plates of delicious Cod and Chips, a soft drink for my wife and two cups of tea for me, and change from £20, with helpful and polite staff, and a cheery thank you as we left.
On the list for our next stop in Folkestone.

“Fresh Fish well Prepared”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

The key to the food is the fresh fish that is cooked well and presented simply. The portions are HUGE. I would be remiss not to point out the chips (fries ) which are great. The service is friendly and unobtrusive. If you want fine dining in an elegant atmosphere, this is not you place. If you want good food for a very good price this is your place.
