I have eaten here on a number of occasions for lunch and evening meals. The food is always delicious and fresh, the atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are incredibly helpful. I am always pleased with the service, food and ambiance. I will happily eat here again and again.

Had a lovely evening meal. The staff were very helpful. Was nice eating in the courtyard, they had closed the glass cover for the evening. You can watch the chef's cooking. The portions were good and everything was fresh and hot.

The food was outstanding but I was told a nice ambience it was not the case unfortunately more swearing than a Weatherspoon's on a Saturday night, with the owner in attendance. To my surprise the swearing was coming from a group of over sixties I am sure if I had used language like that i would have been asked to... More

We were renting a flat In Deal for a week, the owner had left a list of places to eat at, and this was top of his list. We went in on our first night, but didn't realise until we went to order at the bar that we had walked in to a private wedding reception! It looked good, the... More

We tend not to overstock our food as we pride ourselves on the freshness of our meals. On the night you visited us we... More

I loved going in there for lunch, i had a chopped meat salad, which was lovely! the wine was wonderful, I loved how it was kinda rustic but at the same time really quite romantic i guess you could say, the staff were welcoming and kind, and the atmosphere was very happy! Would go there again for sure!

So much choice and all tasted lovely. I asked for the vegetarian menu and had difficulty choosing as it all sounded so good. All 4 of us were really pleased with our choices. We had a drink in the bar area beforehand and were not rushed at all to move through to the restaurant. Nice surroundings in the restaurant and... More

Had lunch here today with three friends and we were happy from our first step in the door. We were warmly greeted and looked after really well. We all chose from the special lunch menu and we all enjoyed what we chose. The fish was cooked to perfection which I feel is a true measure of the skill of the... More

Friday evening 9 th may they had a young guy, jack, singing a range of songs by frank Sinatra and many others. A really enjoyable evening out. This was our... More
