Square Meal Review of Rocksalt ?

Mark Sargeant’s first solo venture since leaving the Gordon Ramsay stable looks set to be an outright winner. Sitting pretty on Folkestone’s harbour front, both the airy ground-floor dining room & upstairs bar/terrace capture the phenomenal harbour & Channel views full on. Seafood is touted as the speciality, & its shines from the very start – perhaps dressed crab lifted by a spot-on hit of harissa, or mussels cooked on the kitchen’s Josper grill. Mains diverge from the maritime theme with good-looking steaks, outstanding salt marsh lamb rump & Monkshill Park pork belly, but most stick to the squeaky-fresh, perfectly cooked fish – say pan-fried Dover sole bathed in nut-brown butter or local mackerel with a punchy, pesto-style green sauce. It may not be groundbreaking stuff, but the kitchen makes its point emphatically through a simple respect for top-drawer raw materials. Bread & desserts should be considered works in progress.

    bloke does blog :: Rocksalt @ Folkestone Harbour, Kent

    It was my wife’s birthday and the mother-in-law and I were trying think of somewhere nice to take her as a birthday treat. After searching around for somewhere open on a Monday night, we settled on Rocksalt.
