Brewing Brothers opens Folkestone Harbour’s largest restaurant

Brewing Brothers Beachside, a brand-new taproom space anchored by a wood-fired oven-focussed menu, is now open at Folkestone Harbour.

The new taproom space, brought to Folkestone Harbour by Hastings-based brewery Brewing Brothers, has become the largest single independent business to operate at the popular seaside destination.

Accessed from Platform 2 of the historic Folkestone Harbour Station, Brewing Brothers Beachside is close to Putters!, the adventure golf course which opened last year. It is more than double the size of its neighbour, Little Rock; the Harbour’s flagship seafood restaurant, which became an instant hit after it opened in 2021.

The taproom and wood-fired oven-focused concept is housed in seven extra-large shipping containers with an outdoor deck for alfresco dining. Inside offers ample room to allow Brewing Brothers Beachside to open all year round and make the most of the popular seaside location.

This entirely new space is Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company’s largest investment in a single unit since first renovating and reopening Folkestone Harbour as a food, drink and experience focussed visitor attraction in 2014.

Paulo Kingston-Correia, general manager of Folkestone Harbour & Seafront Development Company, said: “We’re incredibly proud that what started as a tentative, pop-up street food experiment has now grown at such a pace that we feel we can open venues of this scale and watch them flourish.

“Our mission is to reinvent the English seaside experience and Brewing Brothers Beachside, with their unique space, impressive backstory and spectacular menu delivers that in buckets.”

Alongside an impressive selection of Brewing Brothers beers, visitors will be able to enjoy a revolving menu of inventive, hyper-seasonal dishes served straight from the traditional, Italian imported wood-fired oven.

As well as a fine selection of pizzas including G.O.A.T (with caramelised onions and goats cheese) and The Bomb (with salami, red onions, blue cheese and jalapenos), ‘from the oven’ menu guests can currently enjoy slow-cooked lamb shoulder, charred Mediterranean vegetables and wood-fired haddock.

Brewing Brothers said: “We are thrilled to announce the successful opening of our newest beachfront restaurant in Folkestone, where, over the past couple of weeks, we have been warmly welcomed by customers old and new.

“Their incredible response has exceeded our expectations, and we are now ready and eagerly anticipating a rip-roaring summer at our beachside establishment.

“With our talented chefs, attentive staff and a menu showcasing the finest local ingredients, we offer an unforgettable dining experience against the stunning backdrop of Folkestone’s beautiful beach. Join us as we celebrate this exciting chapter and create unforgettable moments for our guests.”
