Went to Folkestone and wanted a simple lunch. The Samuel Peto delivered that perfectly. Yes it's a JD Wetherspoon but it's value for money and most meals include a free drink. Had a great salad which was very filling but I had to have a...More

What a find this is, you may knock it but for a tasty lunch and a drink you cannot beat it for value. The old building is something else too!

For regular wetherspoons customerd this nees to be seen. Set in an old church so the architecture is amazing. Even uses the crypt and has preserved memorial plaques on walls. Standard wetherspoons offerings in terms of drinks and food.
