Room 213 - The Folkestone Academy Restaurant
Room 213 is the showcase restaurant for students studying Hospitality and Catering at The Folkestone Academy and by all accounts is very difficult to get in as bookings are taken three months in advance. Luckily I am invited to an impromptu lunch as a friend has a spare seat at her table. Walking around a school heading for lunch at a restaurant seems a little odd but the three course set menu keeps you on track.
The waiting staff here are also the students and very attentive they were too. We had barely sat down when we were offered water and bread and as it was a school day, there was no turning it into wine.
The menu looked delicious and not what I was expecting. I went for the fresh herb and sesame crumb coated camembert, which was perfect while one of my lunch companions had the tartare of smoked mackerel and prawns, confirmed as being extremely good and it certainly did look it.
