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

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.

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.
