It is the quality of the food and service that counts here. This is not a pretentious restaurant that will sneer at your wine choice or tut at your starter/main combination. It is all good and is delivered in a way that makes you feel very welcome.

My colleagues and I went there to celebrate a goodbye party. Warm welcoming and knowledgeable staff. The food was amazing, all freshly cooked and I loved everything about this place. Service was impeccable and we had a fantastic time. Definitely recommend it.

Having heard good things, we came here last Tuesday for lunch - the four of us (two adults, two children). And what a fantastic dining experience it was too. Quality food; generous, beautifully presented portions; a kids menu that was as good as the adult one, really nice staff; and prices that were incredibly reasonable considering the high standard.

Wonderful meal with excellent service. Very well presented food with good mixture of vegetables which complimented the meats well. I had the lamb and my hubby had the duck. Just sorry we live so far away.

I have been to Deeson's on a few occasions. Sometimes it's just been myself and a friend to a party of 14 (My Daughter's 18th birthday) On each occasion I have been very impressed. From the greeting you get on your arrival to the good bye when you leave are second to none. The staff are friendly and helpfull (But... More

I went here for lunch with my boyfriend. He was happy with his meal of fish and chips. We both had the starter of carrot soup which was very plain. I had the main which was lentil and mushroom salad with fried Brie. There was only one mushroom, very few greens and the Brie was hollow when I cut into... More

I went here with my girlfriend for lunch and we stopped by because we loved the look of the menu, and saw Tripadvisor comments. My gf wasn't happy with her food, but I will let her review separately. My starter was tasty and I enjoyed the fish & chips - albeit that the portion of chips was slightly too big... More

Deeson's have got it bang on here! Sam and his staff are extremely welcoming, very professional and provide faultless service. 'Keep It Kentish' , 'Support Local' and their famous small holding 'The Bunker' add to the whole theatre of this restaurant. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced! Very good wine list, again we were very impressed with the... More

We came in the door with our umbrellas. The hostess found a holder for us to put the umbrellas in. Everything about this restaurant was friendly and well-organised. The starters were great - rabbit and smoked trout, respectively. We followed with the pork taster and the beef. It was all lovely, tasty, well-presented and just what we wanted - with... More
