Hermitage Restaurant

This restaurant may appear unprepossessing from the outside, but the food is absolutely excellent and I can thoroughly recommend this venue to others.

A lovely offer from The Hermitage

A contributor to the forum posted about a disappointing anniversary meal they'd had at a local restaurant in January. And The Hermitage have chipped in, this story obviously tugged their heart strings like it did mine, but they've actually put their hand in their pocket and are offering the couple in question a free meal!

Skate knobs

Has this menu board been defaced, or are "Skate knobs" a real thing?


Do they have an alcohol licence in there?

I got the impression it was a big "bring your own", I'm not sure where from...


The Hermitage

I have now been to this restaurant 3 times. The food is cooked but all of it is really smoothered in a sauce of one kind or another. One of my friends that was with me the other day commented that when they cook Sardines in France they just grill them, they don't put sauce all over them. The Chef replied well i like sauces.


The Hermitage

They have just won the KM award for good food 2006 for South and East Kent - whatever that means!


Monk's Kitchen, Folkestone, Kent

New Restaurant

Nice to see some refreshing reviews of Folkestone restaurants. Can I please point you the way of the Hermitage. It's where the Monks Kitchen used to be and I can honestly say that it's food it without par. I can recomend the duck. It was delish!
