Eating early evening in Folkestone prior to a Eurotunnel

Planning to stay in HIE in mid june prior to a trip to France. Any suggestion where to go (or avoid) an early evening restaurant as we are on the 7:00 am train so don't want to be up too late.

Would prefer so where fairly close as I'd fancy a glass of wine with my meal.

Cheers for any suggestions.

The HIE is well out-of-town by Junction 12 of the M20 - beyond walking distance to Folkestone. Unless you want to eat at the hotel you might have to compromise and drive in to town, or get a bus:



I've not eaten in Folkestone during the evening so can't provide recommendations, only suggest you use the restaurant listings on here for ideas.

Purely using Google maps, I can see there is an Indian restaurant in Cheriton but isn't reviewed here. Cheriton is a suburban area between HIE and Folkestone, and could be walkable. http://www.princeofindiafolkestone.co.uk/

By car, an alternative to venturing in to Folkestone is the New Inn at Etchinghill which is well-reviewed on here
