We visited chambers not so long ago for a work lunch time meal. The service was smooth and friendly and the food was excellent. It was my first visit here, it certainly won't be my last!

I always get the chilli level 4 with extra fresh jalapeños and coriander with no rice and it is lovely every time. The staff always remember me and always get my order correct. Love this place for lunch

We visited the pub which is down some stairs and has a friendly cellar vibe. The food was amazing, we had the nachos with chilli to start then hubby had the pulled pork enchilada while I had the chicken fajita. You could see the care put into the presentation and it tasted lovely 😀. Highly recommended this place, we visited... More

Nice warm food on a cold day and great coffee. Great location to watch Folkestone walk by the corner windows.

Staff, food all of a good standard. They have a good entertainment calendar but book early as it does get busy. This place would do better in a prim position, don't dismiss just by look, go give it a try.

Visited Chambers on a Thursday evening when they had an excellent 5 piece rockabilly band. Great music, a lively crowd along with a bar with a good range of drinks. Check with their website to find out what is on.

My partner and I wandered in here for dinner on a Saturday night. It was extremely busy and we were lucky to get a table when another couple left (although we had to hover suspiciously for a while!) I ordered the Vegetarian fajitas, I asked the man serving what was in them and he asked if there was anything I... More

Hi KemoMason & thanks for taking the time to review The Chambers! Yes I remember your visit! That was a BUSY one and a great buzz about the place.

Brilliant location on a corner of busy Main Street. Really enjoyed the visit. We sat outside in baking hot sun. It's a little bit busy and noisy but still fun. Overall a really good feeling and quality to the place.

I've been to the chambers a few times in the past and I refused to go again - the service was horrifically slow to the point we almost left and this was on a weekday lunchtime and there was barely anyone in there! This happened twice in a row. Decided to give it another go probably over a year later!... More

Hi VintageWildmanClan and thank you for a number of things here! Firstly though let me apologise for any bad experiences you've had in the past with wait times for you food. A quiet bar doesn't always mean a quiet kitchen though, as we cook for the Coffee Shop too and that can get really busy of a lunch and all... More

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.
