Mark Sargeant has revealed plans to roll out his new fish and chip concept The Smokehouse across Kent and Sussex coastal towns once his inaugural site in Folkestone launches next month.

The Smokehouse is due to open on Folkestone’s harbour in early June​, alongside Sargeant’s second venture Rocksalt, a separate but nearby family-orientated seafood restaurant with rooms.

But while Rocksalt is a one-off venture for the former Claridge’s chef, Smokehouse, says Sargeant, has the potential to succeed as a multisite operation.

Speaking with BigHospitality’s Becky Paskin on Folkestone harbour, Sargeant reveals how he plans to regenerate the area with food, drink and a waterside boutique hotel.

Well Done Mr Sargeant

Posted by Keith Cloke,

I hope your two eateries in the harbour of my home town take off! And i hope to try both very soon perhaps on my 50th this August 16! However i thought the local media would have been more engaged at the launch?
Best of luck! what's not to like a fish restaurant next to the towpath.
