We booked for lunch on a Wednesday expecting a smattering of people in the restaurant but it was almost full and the hum of contented diners greeted our entry. The pheasant was delicious and the nice touch was that Having been overheard coveting my husband's order of fat juicy chips a fat juicy chip was planted on the top of... More

We ate there last Wednesday in the rear area which was not very warm. We had to summon service whenever we wanted to order. I had pheasant which arrived as a tiny dried up breast on a bed of mash. Very disappointing although my partner's meal was satisfactory. Very expensive. Would not go there again.

The menu and food are great but don't sit near the front door in winter as very cold sea winds when door opens... Slightly pricey compared to other local restaurants.

This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last. The food was excellent, both in terms of quality and value for money, and the staff were both friendly and attentive. Ours was a pre-Christmas get together with friends, and we could not have made a better choice. In our opinion, one not to be missed.

This restaurant is a stone's throw from the centre of Deal and close to the sea. It serves food with interesting twists - not too expensive on a la carte at lunch time and very good value 2 or 3 course menu. The decor is imaginative and the ladies' loos well worth a visit- luxurious! Our party mainly chose the... More

I have eaten here on two occasions and both times have been superb. I ate here on a Sunday and also one evening (using my taste card). The Sunday menu was delicious with my partner and myself both having Rib of Beef. We were intending on having desserts but the main course was so big we didn't actually have enough... More

Not pre-possessing from the street but a warm welcome awaited 4 of us inside. Friendly staff, efficient service and good food. A la carte and set lunch menus, all well cooked and presented, good value. Recommended.

Four of us for lunch. We had a great time for just under two hours enjoying the set menu. All starters were excellent. Wine carafe. Beer and juice all first rate. Main course - pork steak with tarragon - was (unfortunately) quite poor. Tough chewy and gristle was my assessment. View is outstanding and service was very good. Great lunch...poor... More

We visited 81 Beach Street for lunch today with friends. Their lunch menu was lovely and inviting. In the end we all had the pork steak with tarragon sauce. We also all managed starters, bread with oil and three out of four of us had dessert. The service was good; we did not have to wait long for our food... More
