THE FOOD

Bartle Halpin Photography

The food at Custom Folkestone reflects our location balanced between the sea and the 'Garden of England'. Through our bartering programme and in close collaboration with our local suppliers, we source hyperlocal and seasonal ingredients, changing our menu weekly in accordance with changing availability.  We love cooking with seafood, local produce, homegrown and foraged herbs and vegetables.  

 

The menu is designed and cooked by award-winning chef and artist Cherry Truluck and served in our intimate and welcoming space in a pair of specially converted shipping container on Folkestone Harbour Arm.
