What a lovely restaurant. Amazing staff who couldn’t do enough for us. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. If anything there was too much for me.

Booked for a birthday meal. Very warm welcome from the owner who we had a great chat with. The food was very good, well presented and generously portioned. The service was genuinely warm and attentive. A real gem of a restaurant which will be the envy of many more pretentious establishments. We will gladly return :)

What a pleasant surprise.

It is not often that my partner and I get to dine out, so to find a restaurant like this was amazing.

The food was excellent and very well presented. The service was outstanding and the general feel of the place was that of a much more expensive venue.

Will be going back and will always recommend Earl's to anyone who might listen.

We arrived early on a bank holiday weekend to a warm welcome and were offered a table early or to relax in the bar. The menu was varied, service was good not rushed or left waiting. Food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The only {small} negative was that when ordering desserts we were offered coffee and our coffee arrived before the desserts and I think it would have been more appreciated after we had finished eating. As the staff we re so pleasant I'm sure they would have taken it away if asked, maybe they should ask if the customer would like coffee with or after dessert. Altogether a lovely eating experience in a nice atmosphere. We will be back.

Absolutely wonderful dinner!
My partner and I took my parents for dinner here and we were not disappointed. We’ve been a few times since discovering Wards Hotel and every time has been perfect. The food and service were first class. Thank you!

Went to Earls restaurant on Friday 15th for a date night. I rang the day after and spoke to the lovely Nita asking for a special request, and of course with her help and of course the wonderful chef here my request was granted- this is what i love about this restaurant nothing is too much trouble, and all of the staff seem to bend over backwards to make you feel special dining here.
The food here is superb, tasty and very fresh the presentation on the plate is lovely and a true work of art.
Thank You to the Chef, the attentive waiter and waitress for a lovely meal.
We will be back soon, as this in my opinion is one of the best Restaurants in Folkestone.

Beautifully presented and cooked food. Al dente vegetables just right. Small choice of desserts but still a nice selection. I can’t understand why the restaurant isn’t packed!

Very disappointed with the strong language used by visitors just using the bar which could be heard in the restaurant.
I'm afraid I can't visit again especially had one of my children with me that heard the foul language!

We visited with a view to seeing if the hotel would be suitable for a wedding reception. The waiter was amazing and showed us around which was really helpful.

We are waiting for his colleague to ring us back to arrange a meeting
