What a treat!

Excellent meal, in pleasant surroundings and great service. The menu was good with gluten free options clearly marked, and the food was served piping hot and well presented. Will certainly go again!

Well presented food but nothing spectacular I suppose I was expecting more for the price. It's always disappointing when you know you could of made the dish better yourself. Friendly staff and nice setting though!

The starters (haddock tart and spring rolls) were okay but nothing to get excited about. The main courses were a disappointment. The Thai chicken noodle broth was bland to the taste with a peculiar odour I couldn't pin down. It had very little in it other than noodles, shredded chicken and some mild sliced chillis. It was about as Thai... More

We paid an unplanned visit to this seafront restaurant on a rainy Monday night in February, and enjoyed an excellent dinner from start to finish. This is an unfussy and informal place which is evidently popular with the locals - it was pretty full for a Monday evening. But that's hardly surprising, given the quality of the food which then...

The room is an odd one to eat in, I found myself fighting with a curtain that covers the kitchen door. The food is good and simply done.

Visiting family in and around Deal our gathering chose this restaurant and I am so glad they did. Family ranged from mid twenties to mid eighties and all agreed the choice had been excellent. First the food was extremely good over all three courses. Three of us had the catch of the day which was a delightful lemon sole cooked... More
