    I like chambers as a meeting point but I must say I find it a bit lacking in atmosphere and indeed it feels a bit claustraphobic.

    The staff are very friendly though.

    Don't expect to find any beer other then British.

    Low ceilings and couple of seating areas, no loud music and conversation oriented.

    I can't believe that The Chambers is ten years old!!! That makes me feel like I am getting old!

    The Chambers is a fantastic pub and coffee shop owned by Chris Smith. He started the business as a pub ten years ago and the opened the coffee shop a few years later in the shop above the pub.

    The coffee shop offers a wide range of hot and cold drinks as well as sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and soup during the day time, ecept for sunday. They also have a lovely rangke of cakes!! It is always busy as it is a very popular place for a yummy lunch. They have lots of comfy seating areas and have a few tables outside for the smokers.

    Downstairs in the pub they offer a selection of specialist beers and have regular beer festivals. They also sell hot food in the evenings which is all vety nice. I love the chilli corn on the cobs and the meat balls. The bar staff are all really friendly and will always offer advice on drinks. The puddings are extremly nice too.

    There is no pool table any more which is a shame as it was always fun to have a few games. I think they took it away as it took up too much room when they are really busy on the weekends.

    Worth mentioning as a real ale fan that Chambers has been in the CAMRA guide for the past 6 years and the beer is well kept. they also have a film club which meets on an adhoc basis and shows cult films - check out their website for updates

    What a busy little pub downstairs and a lovely busy coffee ship upstairs.

    With its good food, frequent beer festivals and entertainment in the evenings this pub is a major attraction in Folkestone. With a wide range of customers it appears to be popular with everyone!

    First to Review

    good local pub with a beer cellar feel to it, 2 bars serving some exclusive rich full bodied ales on draft, 3-4 separate seating areas w/enough privacy to have good conversation.
