First visit to The Chambers, Folkestone. Our food was all very tasty and nicely presented. The burgers were great and the chicken fajitas were delicious! Not overpriced either. The staff were really friendly and service quick. The atmosphere was relaxed. Although it's a bit of an unusual venue for a restaurant, it actually works quite well.

We have been to this cafe a number of times now because we like the setting ambience & food. The coffee is always good & the paninis tasty & well priced. The music is not invasive. All round a great place for light lunch & welcoming staff.

We arrived early for our lunch so decided to have a coffee and a tea in the Chambers coffee shop, what a great cup of coffee! and so much better value than the big high street brands! Once downstairs for lunch, our table was ready, a great choice of food was available, and we didn't have to wait long for... More

Fab bar, we went quite early but it was busy. Despite that no problem getting a table, food was served quickly and was relish. Music started just as we were leaving but it promised to be a good night for those who stayed on.

I won't go anywhere else I the town for a coffee. Service is spot on and the atmosphere is pleasant. Also it is the perfect location to sit and watch the world go by.

The Chambers was packed on a Friday night for their Indie Anthems night, and we had a really good time. A good selection of ciders and a great atmosphere.

Hi kirbzzz & thanks for your 5 star review of The Chambers! Awesome!! More often than not our reviews are for our food, drink & our coffee shop...but a VERY big part of what we do here at The Chambers is our music, both live and DJ sets.

Hi benr92705 and thanks very much for your review of The Chambers! I take it that you may've used our street level Coffee Shop for your meeting? A great spot to watch the world go by with a quality coffee isn't it? Did you also know there's a HUGE basement bar underneath that serves it's own lunch and evening menus... More

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.
