Folkestone is a visionary place, where the originators of the Vegan movement in the 1950s and 60s have worked creating plant-based milks and chocolate at Plamil.

There’s Spanish and Basque tapas on offer with El Cortador and Pick Up Pinxtos and Folkestone’s food scene is developing with pop-up opportunities to develop ideas, and support for local independent businesses. There are fantastic drinking opportunities too with Folklore, The Potting Shed and great pubs too. Find out where to eat in restaurants, bars and cafés such as Planet Earth Kitchen in Folkestone.
