Harden's survey result
“A lovely position with uninterrupted views of the most picturesque part of Folkestone Harbour and out to sea” is the crown jewel feature of Mark Sargeant’s “beautifully located” venture (“make sure you book a window table”). Its fish and seafood cuisine is far from incidental though, and most reports record “fantastic” results.
“You can literally see the boats bringing in the catch” at Mark Sargeant’s “classy” contemporary fish-restaurant where “you eat overlooking the old harbour, gazing out to sea”. If it wasn’t so darn expensive, it would be rated even higher given the “wonderfully inventive” cooking, “impeccable service” and “superb views”.
“Unsurpassable harbour views” are the highlight at Mark Sargeant’s “contemporary-style” three-year-old, which is best enjoyed from the “fantastic, sunny-day terrace” (especially as the interior can be “incredibly noisy”). Food-wise, “local fish is prepared with a sure touch”, but it’s “expensive”.
“A panoramic view of Folkestone beach, plus a balcony for those who wish to dine outside” – the highpoint at Mark Sergeant’s “entertaining” two-year-old; the cooking achieves an OK rating despite numerous gripes about “high-end London prices”, and quite a few reporters “expected more, given the reputation”.

"Great fish and champagne with a fantastic view !"
"Beautifully cooked fresh fish served by welcoming staff (what are we going to do without our EU youngsters ?) and with a superb view of the harbour"
"Went there on a day trip from London for lunch and was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and relaxed and the food was very good. Coupled with an amazing view of the harbour, it made for a very relaxing afternoon. Will definitely be going back."
"Lovely view of Folkestone Harbour from this oldie. Varied menu with tasty well-cooked food always here."
