The eating cognoscenti of East Kent (and we've spoken to quite a few of them) are generally on the ball in their recommendations of the many fine eating houses in the area. They will tell you however that certain other establishments on Deal seafront are the best restaurants in this delightful town. Don't believe them. The Court Yard is. By... More

Adequate food but hopeless service. Limited menu made worse but several things being unavailable. The menu boasts "fresh fish of the day" which was also unavailable.

No salt and pepper, no side plates, no Specials and no fresh fish. The restaurant does not live up to the look of the website.

A point I've made before but will repeat...there is no star rating for Good. Just Average and then Very Good. Pity - because this deservedly popular fish restaurant a short walk from the seafront deserves a Good, rather than an Average. Only one "catch of the day special" left before 8pm on a Tuesday evening...and that was a giant Dover... More

Our first visit in over a year and the food is still as good as ever. Calamari cooked to perfection and the haddock and salmon fish pie was really excellent with plenty of fish inside. Desert delicious too. 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 desert, bottle of water and a nice bottle of French wine all for only £77. Excellent value.... More

Having seen other diners eating fantastically fresh lobster at The Court Yard in the past, my wife was determined to try one here. The advice was to phone in the morning (as it all depended on what the fishermen had caught) - we did and we phoned back within 5 minutes to confirm that there were some (the restaurant having...

Came here twice in one week for the pasta and paella night,then for sunday lunch. This is a sweet restaurant with lovely decor and ambience. I have been here before for movie nights,and those are always brilliant. The paella was so-so but the pasta was incredible,then I had chicken escalope and it was lovely. Will definitely go here again.
