What a lovely view of Folkestone. It is possible to walk to top from cliffs below but it is a steep walk. Car parking for cafe users. Picnic benches outside. Toilets very clean. Good variety of food & beverages. Nice atmosphere.

Stopped here late afternoon for a very welcome cuppa and cake. Staff were helpful even though it was close to closing time. The lemon cake was moist and tasty.
