Banks

HSBC

41 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 1SA, UK – 0345 740 4404

I think HSBC is the one of the best bank. In terms of management, financial work,advice,etc Recently I opened my bank account from folkestone HSBC branch.the staff were really professional and friendly. Specially thank you very much MRS LEANDRA KEARNS for your help full advice.

Barclays Bank

67 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 1RY, UK – 0345 734 5345

Quaint little bank, the staff are always pleasant & helpful, someone is always on the floor to assist. I would expect a queue when it's busy! Good Bank.

There's often a wait in here, but staff are helpful and friendly. They could do with adding some paying-in machines here.

NatWest

Europa House, 49 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 1RU, UK – 0345 788 8444

The whole style of the bank is tired and shabby. I think that the poor environment is detrimental to the staff's attitude to their work and the customers. I have had some very good service there but also quite appalling service. When I lived in the suburbs of London my local NatWest was always winning rosettes for its efficiency and good service! What a come down.........

Ive banked with natwest for years, never had a bad problem here. Just the long queues inside thats a downer.

Have been extremely happy with the treatments received so far. All staff very good too. Faith in dentists have been restored (some not very good experiences with previous dental practices) Thank you.

Folkestone Dental Clinic

45-47 Canterbury Rd, Folkestone CT19 5NJ, UK – 01303 252995

I am scared of the dentist, have been since I was 10 years old but I feel calm and less nervous when I visit this practice. They have saved 3 of my teeth from being removed and they share all their findings with you. I truly recommend them and have encouraged family members to go here.

Total Dental Care

92 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone CT20 2BE, UK – 01303 255559

Excellent experience at TDC. Have been registered here for 1 year and been in twice for emergency treatment. Both times they have seen me on the day, given the treatment necessary and completed my normal half yearly check up to save me having to come back. I'm petrified of the dentist yet my dentist here is extraordinary at making me feel relaxed. Highly recommend.

Excellent service no long waiting period staff warm warm friendly .

The New Surgery

128 Canterbury Rd, Folkestone CT19 5SR, UK – 01303 243516

I have been with this surgery for one year and have received a very good standard of care for both me and my family.

Always found Doctors nurses and reception staff to be most helpful bearing in mind the pressures they are all under. Well done.

Dr M A Hossain & Partners

Guildhall Surgery, 65 - 69 Guildhall St N, Folkestone CT20 1EJ, UK – 01303 851411

Often late but who isn't in the NHS? we should blame patients for that not staff. They offer double appointments for people that need extra long to whine so if people only book one appointment and then ramble on for ages about what happened in 1976 to their daughters back then the doctor can't exactly kick them out. Would give five stars as staff always polite and helpful, and premises always clean, but they lose two stars purely because the receptionists have all started to ask me what I'm calling about. It's private!! And if they don't have any medical training then they don't know what is serious and what isn't. Also they tell people to ring 111 once they're fully booked but I work for 111 and we don't give appointments during the day. We don't have doctors during the day so ringing 111 doesn't achieve anything. But other than those points, great surgery. Won't be changing.

Very busy local GP Practice

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Very efficiently run hospital with kind and friendly staff. Though the building is old the equipment is not. I have really had to wait as appointments seem to run to time, A rarity these days. There is never a pleasure to go to hospital but at Folkestone it’s less of an ordeal. Well done to the staff.

Went for an ENT appointment and I must say, I didn’t have to wait on both appointments. Wasn’t ignored, seen on time. Lovely staff. It’s been a pleasure!

Find Recycling Centres

Folkestone Household Waste Recycling Centre

Ross Way, Shorncliffe, Folkestone CT20 3UJ, UK – 0300 041 7373

Yes you will have the odd queue but staff are helpful and the site appears to run very smoothly

I know it can be really annoying when you have to wait to enter the recycling site (which has caused some poor reviews) but bearing in mind the small size of this centre and the stringent health and safety regulations (to keep us, the public safe) I think they are doing a jolly good job. I have found them really helpful. Today I visited to get rid of some wire fencing and asbestos and was helped and assisted promptly. Great to get rid of stuff and know it is done safely and will be recycled. Yes maybe next time there is a bit of a wait to get in but you can always turn around and go back later or just take it easy life s busy as it is. ☺

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Folkestone

Conchitas Restaurant

22, Bouverie Road West, Folkestone, Kent, Folkestone, Kent CT20 2SZ, UK – 01303 242484

Lovely staff, nice and friendly. Not too in your face either so that's a plus. Value for money was pretty good, 3 of us are starters and mains and came to £55. Only thing to be fussy about was the food, meat was a bit dry and didn't seem to be made fresh. Nice never the less

First class Tex-Mex and steaks, ribs restaurant. A very friendly welcome from Fiona, Firat and the team. Great food: very good fajitas and spicy "fire" chicken wings. Also very nice Mexican dishes. Portions are large so have very rarely reached the dessert. Modest range of wines but a good, compatible selection at reasonable prices. Good range of cocktails. Typical place for celebrations, often have tables of say 10 or 12, so tends to have a lively atmosphere. Extremely good value. Best to book at popular times, e.g Friday and Saturday evenings.

Aspendos Restaurant

6-8, Aspen House, West Terrace, Folkestone CT20 1TH, UK – 01303 241688

Absolutely amazing food.. My 1st Turkish experience... The staff were so so friendly but not over bearing. You could see the food being prepared.. The ingredients were lovely and fresh.. I'm normally a tight git but I even left a tip...

Very tasty meal with good service. My only criticism is that it is mainly meat with rice or salad. I know that's the Turkish way but I do prefer some veg and different sauces. However don't let that put you off as meat was very well done.

La Tavernetta

Leaside Court, Clifton Gardens, Folkestone CT20 2ED, UK – 01303 255044

Absolutely superb we haven't be there for about a year but still remembered us and welcomed us back like we were family. Beautiful food and top class service. Will be back again soon

Nice place. Food is quite good and service is perfect. Recommended.
