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

The new taproom space, brought to Folkestone Harbour by ambitious 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, the immensely popular 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 impressive outdoor deck for alfresco dining. Inside offers ample room to allow Brewing Brothers Beachside to open all year round, and make the most of Beachside’s location which is expected to be a real hit this summer.

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. Brewing Brothers Beachside is also the largest of six new restaurants that will open at Folkestone Harbour this summer. It’s position, sitting snug against the wall of the historic
Folkestone Harbour Station, boasts uninterrupted views across Folkestone’s Seafront and, being westerly facing, will offer views of the sunsets during long summer evenings.

Paulo Kingston-Correia, The 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.”

As well as showcasing an impressive selection of their own beers, visitors will also be able to enjoy a revolving menu of inventive, hyper-seasonal dishes served straight from the searing hot, smoky environment of their traditional, Italian imported wood fired oven. As well as a
fine selection of pizzas including G.O.A.T (with Caramlised Onions and Goats Cheese) and The Bomb (with Salami, Red Onions, Blue Cheese and Jalapenos), their ‘from the oven’ menu currently includes 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.”
