Our independent businesses have all returned. They might look and feel a little different, but they are still the small, independent traders you know and love serving top quality food and drink. They can’t wait to see you again, and we hope you’re able to support them as they begin to restart.
We ask that you familiarise yourself with our new policies before you visit.
Discover a range of food – from fresh Greek mezze served from a double decker bus, to vegan fare in a restaurant housed in two shipping containers, to Champagnes in a bar tucked into the Lighthouse at the end of the Arm.
Along the Arm, there are huts serving street food: ribs, gourmet hot-dogs, Dutch pancakes, home-made burgers, Polenta encrusted fish, and so much more, all with a choice of beers and soft drinks.
In the covered area along the platform small, inside units offer a range of delicious food; crisp Italian pizzas and Indian streetfood. English wines and craft beers are served inside, alongside real ales. There’s even one unit entirely dedicated to serving up a fine selection of cocktails and international beers.
Much of the food on the Harbour Arm is locally sourced: fish from the trawlers in the adjoining harbour, bread and beer from our own on-site bakery and brewery and meat and vegetables from farmers and smallholders in surrounding Kent – The Garden of England. The Harbour Arm also supports small, local breweries and the growing number of quality wines produced in Kent.
Folkestone Harbour Arm has quickly become celebrated as a food, drink and event destination. Discover us via the beautifully restored Folkestone Harbour Station and Viaduct across the Inner Harbour, which offers a beautiful new route from the old town through to the Lighthouse.TABLE SERVICE INFORMATION
Vegan ice-cream lovers will melt at the sight of the Hungry Hippy’s ice cream menu. Specialising in vanilla soft-serve vegan ice cream with a choice of 12 different toppings and 4-5 sauces, the Hungry Hippy also offers glorious vegan milkshakes and delicious vegan waffles. If you crave chocolate, caramel, raspberry or strawberry sauce with your popcorn covered ice cream, then the Hungry Hippy has your back. Try your ice cream with a freshly cooked waffle and some honeycomb pieces, Love Hearts, cookies or cream biscuits. There’s also a piña colada milkshake, which is perfectly satisfying on a sunny seaside day.
The Hungry Hippy team have previously plied their trade on the festival circuit, proving to be hugely popular. Now, their bright turquoise van will be plotting up for the summer on Folkestone Harbour Arm, just near the entrance, offering their sweet and satisfying vegan treats for all to enjoy.
