Description: The Chambers is at first glance a street level Coffee Shop 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 we also offer specials to present 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. 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.

We went to The Chambers for dinner after a busy day house hunting. There was a large birthday party in but the lovely staff kept us posted on the very short wait. The atmosphere was buzzy and fun. I went for the steak enchilada, and shocked my boyfriend by wolfing the very generous portion down - absolutely delicious. He went for the ribs, chicken and fries - you will get sticky fingers. Really decent portions, really tasty food and really wonderful staff. We can't wait to move and become regulars at all the live music nights, quiz nights and ale festivals!

Hi Alabama B,

Sounds like you needed a rest & a good bite to eat that day & I'm glad you chose us to be your venue!

Folkestone's a good place to be looking at too as there's just SO much happening here atm.

This year in particular is just mad! With the Triennial, the Folkestone Proms & the Airshow too & a visit from New York artiste Spencer Tunick to boot!

Busy Busy Busy but great for it !!

For our part, I'm very pleased that we provided you with a good meal & enjoyable atmosphere in which to unwind. House hunting can be a rotter can't it?!

If you end up being a Folkestone resident, then we look forward to welcoming you back to the Chambers at sometime in the near future

Best regards,

The Chamber-Meister

Hi Emma S,

Thank you SOO much for your review :-)

I & the team are very very chuffed that we get everything right enough for you to take the time to write a review & ESPECIALLY with 5 stars in EVERY category!!

Outstanding :-) Thank you!!

I will ensure that the guys working here at Chambers get full sight of this review to realise that their hard work pays off.

I don't think that the general customer realises how much good reviews like this can do for a venue, especially in the motivational stakes, so once more - thanks Emma.

Many regards & here's to keeping things just right for you,

TheChambermeister.

Dear Tom S,

Well it's pretty rewarding to see the word 'Sublime' used in a description of my little gaff down here in Folkestone

Thank you so very much for taking the time to review us in such a positive light & for also making it clear to others that may read your review that there is a broad appeal to be had here.

It's good of you to take the time to do this & i assure you we'll always strive to keep up standards to the level you've thankfully become accustomed.

Best regards,

TheChamber-Meister.

Reviewed March 5, 2014

I visit Chambers at least once a week with family/partner and not once have been disappointed. The staff, food, atmosphere, beer, coffee AND the toilets are all amazing. It's very well priced, trust me you won't regret going.

Dear Lewis,

Having not checked into Tripadvisor for an unusually long week or two it was a real pleasure seeing your really complimentary & positive review. Many thanks!

Even more though is the fact that you patronize us regularly & always find things are consistently where they need to be to give you ta reason to return again. As an owner of a business this of course is VERY satisfying to read :-)

We're very happy at Chambers to see that we've got things just about right for you & long may it continue!!

Best regards,

TheChamber-Meister.
