We're currently looking for new traders to join us on the Harbour Arm.learn more
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
If you’re a meat lover, you must sample the succulent and satisfying 15-hour slow cooked beef brisket from The Meat Shack. It’s served in a fluffy brioche bun with handmade coleslaw, pickle-on-a-stick and a tub of The Meat Shack’s famous meaty gravy for dipping. Wash it down with a craft beer and you’ll be happily satisfied with not much room left other than to enjoy the chilled out vibes of the Harbour Arm, soak in the sun and sea air, and perhaps catch some live music outdoors with friends.
The Meat Shack crew started their journey at the Harbour Arm back in 2016 after being invited to join the amazing group of traders ready for the new season. Starting out under the name Not Just Ribz, the team plotted up whilst the Arm was still in the middle of its extensive refurbishment; though this didn’t stop visitors coming and queuing for the team’s succulent offerings.
