What a beautifuly placed Cafe. Overlooking the Straits of Dover. Food of high quality. Very good selection. A must for walkers to stop and rest with a cuppa. Staff very friendly.

Visited with some trepidation having seen some reviews, but really don't understand. We were treated really well, food was good, quick and good value. Amazing views of folkestone below, will certainly return.

We called in for lunch and immediately noticed the car park had been re surfaced and was much easier to walk across than it used to be. The view is still as spectacular as ever and the venue is kept spotlessly clean and the staff...More
