The Cliffe Restaurant at The View Hotel is a fantastic food and drink destination on the famous Leas in Folkestone. In 2016, the building was beautifully restored to its former glory and is now a four-star boutique hotel and contemporary bar & restaurant.

The Cliffe Restaurant is independently owned and operated, and the team strive to give a personal and friendly service within comfortable surroundings. Not only is the restaurant in the perfect location, but The View Hotel also offers stunning views of the sea, making it possible to see glimpses of France on the horizon. The hotel has been proudly awarded a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and receives many excellent reviews. The position of the hotel and restaurant make it the perfect place for a luxury getaway by the sea.  

The restaurant offers a variety of menus available throughout the week, including a lunch and tapas menu, a Sunday lunch menu, an à la carte menu and a recently launched brunch menu. It is also the perfect setting for a quintessentially British afternoon tea, with spectacular views overlooking the gardens.

Many events such as ‘Murder Mystery’ and other themed nights are hosted here, as well as regular live music nights every month. Both the hotel and restaurant cater for many special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and wakes, as well as catering for corporate events and hosting meetings in the private function room.  

A vast selection of soft and alcoholic beverages alongside contemporary cocktails are available in the bar to suit everyone’s tastes, with comfortable seating for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The experienced bar team are always eager to please and can create many cocktails or drinks on request. During the summer months, you can enjoy the morning, afternoon and evening sun on our bar terrace with breathtaking views across the English Channel.
