Has to be one of the filthiest (tourist spot) eatery's I have ever been in. And I don't just mean the mess left by other dinners. It actually smells dirty. And it's attempt at. Modern decor made it seem promising from the outside, although the Uncomfortable Ikea style tables and chairs were not welcoming (they obviously don't want you to become comfortable.

The staff do try to clean the tables a I did see a waitress with a dust pan and brush (in a break from using her mobile phone)

Ordered scampi and chips, and the scampi smells like the atmosphere which I guess means it the oil that they use to cook in.

Not a traditional seaside fish & chips flavour.

If you don't like beef dripping stay away.

The Tarter sauce made with GARLIC !!! Since when
Actually an experience I don't wish to repeat

No Vegan options or vegetarian option

Chippy,take away and restaurant. One of the delights of a summer night is to buy a portion of chips and sit by the sea wall eating the hot perfect crisp chips. All the food is great. Only problem is its shut over winter and on occasion the staff can be offhand.

Fish and chips are fantastic at the Smokehouse harbour side Folkestone Kent. The Smokehouse is great with its dedication to recycling. Everything is freshly cooked when you have placed your order. It is always busy so it speaks for itself. I say get there and try for yourself.

We've been phoning and phoning for days to try and book a table. Lunchtimes, evenings.....we've tried and tried but no answer. No answer phone. Calls cut off after a while. According to their website they should be open but........
I think they must have gone out of business.

Absolutely awful fish and chips served today. Average portion. Strangest shaped piece of fish ever seen and the batter was under cooked and rank.
Don’t waste £8.50 on it.
