THE ES­SEN­TIALS

WHAT: WHERE:

Kent Life - - Food And Drink -

Cliff Hall, with whom the ho­tel has a spe­cial ar­range­ment for dis­counted pre-the­atre meals – and was head­ing for the strik­ing Step Short Me­mo­rial Arch.

It all made sense now that the ho­tel has re­cently added lunches and an al­ready-pop­u­lar brunch menu to its reper­toire. I’m com­ing back to try that, then I’ll head for the in­trigu­ing lit­tle beach I could see from my room via The Zig Zag Path built af­ter the First World War to al­low ac­cess to the shore.

Folke­stone is fab, ob­vi­ously, and The View is a great ad­di­tion to its charms, with a ded­i­cated young team at the helm and some ex­cit­ing cook­ing emerg­ing.
