TPS Bodega: Great Wine & Gourmet Deli Pairings

I love all the quirky places you can go for a drink or a bite to eat in Folkestone. We are spoilt for choice, and I love living here for that very reason. Whether you want a relaxed vibe, a dive bar feel, somewhere vibrant and lively or somewhere elegant and classic, you’ll find it here in Folkestone.

One place I heartily recommend for a glass of wine, and some lovely snacks to go with it, is TPS Bodega. Formerly an interiors shop, acting as the cover for the secret speakeasy bar hidden out the back, The Potting Shed is now a trendy wine bar and wine shop.

Sit in and enjoy a glass of wine from their extensive selection, along with some great gourmet deli-style food to go with it, or grab something to take away. I warn you though – if you pop in to pick up a takeaway bottle of wine, you’ll end up staying for a glass or two while you’re there. The place is so charming, you won’t be able to resist.

TPS Bodega crostini

Last time I was there, David recommended a nice glass of Sfera Rosso, an organic, Sicilian, easy-drinking red. This went beautifully with the food he suggested – a lovely goats cheese and tapenade crostini. With the quirky decor and the classy background music, it’s a fabulous place to be.

TPS Bodega Basque Cheesecake

I stayed long enough for a second glass of wine, and was tempted by this beautiful Basque cheesecake. Soooo good!

You’ll find The Potting Shed on Rendezvous Street. Just look for the bright yellow building. And while you’re there, you can book a table at TPS Speakeasy for an evening of cocktails from the prohibition era.

Visiting from out of town? Why not book a stay?
