Nestled in on the famous Leas of Folkestone, The Cliffe Restaurant is the area’s must-visit destination for delicious British fare, and a tipple or two of course.

There’s not much better (in our opinion) than relaxing, taking in the vast panoramic seafront views of Folkestone and feasting on quality British food, washed down with refreshing beer or a glass of wine. Meaning, The Cliffe Restaurant is the ideal destination really. The Cliffe Restaurant is housed in a beautifully restored townhouse that doubles as The View Hotel, where you can while the day away over a lazy Sunday lunch with all the trimmings, or pop in for a decadent afternoon tea of homemade scones, finger sandwiches and an array of freshly baked pastries.
As for the a la carte menu, The Cliffe Restaurant boasts arguably the best British selection around. Kick things off with starters like the pan-fried squid with lightly spiced aubergine caviar and rocket, pan-seared scallops wrapped in pancetta with a mango salsa or soup of the day with freshly baked warm crusty bread. For main, keep an eye out for the crispy pork belly with British black pudding, potato rosti, celeriac remoulade and apple puree, seafood linguine brimming with mussels, clams, squid and prawns cooked in a white wine sauce with capers and cherry tomatoes, or the vegetarian parmigiana packed with aubergine and roasted vegetables with a side of garlic bread. Whatever your selection, The Cliffe Restaurant in the town centre of Folkestone will leave you floating in foodie heaven, so do yourself a favour and reserve a table – you won’t regret it!

Absolutely wonderful food in beautiful surroundings. The restaurant is a lovely place to eat, with great views of the garden and glimpses of the sea. Toilets are absolutely fabulous! All of the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will be back.
Good food with good presentation & good service for a busy Sunday. Staff attentive & polite. Would definitely go again. On this occasion We ordered from the Sunday Menu but the a la carte menu is really good too.
Lovely food and ambience. Friendly helpful staff, who knew what we required. All staff interaction was great. There really wasn’t anything else that could have improved the meal or evening
Enjoyed the meal. Restaurant was quite empty which was a pity but it was a Sunday evening on a cold winters night. Would go again
