Chequers Kitchen is now primarily a cookery school and we hope you will join us to cook together one day. This means the restaurant is no longer open routinely to the general public. However, there are still ways to come and dine with us and the bar will be open for hot and cold drinks whenever we are here - which is most of the time! We continue to hold our popular Demo & Dine events, with dates and menus listed on the website. We are a fabulous venue for Team Building, private group dining, celebrations and Christmas parties. And for those who have dined with us in the past we have our by-invitation Friends' Suppers and Lunches.

An amazing dining experience

This lovely restaurant in Deal was exactly what one looks for, not only is the food fantastic, the atmosphere was great with the staff being some of the most pleasant and friendly I have ever come across. It had a family and friend feel to it and we felt welcome and warmed as soon as we arrived... read more

Unfortunately this review is full of inaccuracies. This booking was not made by this reviewer. It was made by a woman in the party who I spoke to several times. When we decided we had to cancel the event I rang her to explain. This was on the Thursday, not on the Saturday. Of course we realised it would be... More

A really lovely place. We happened upon it by chance and stopped off for a cup of tea and cake while heading towards Deal. We were greeted by a very friendly lady (a co-owner) who told us all about the social enterprise cookery classes they run there. Would really recommend a visit and we can't wait to come back for...

Always a great experience. Delicious food and ambience, especially when Pieter is there! We try to take friends with us as it is a really interesting concept being in a kitchen and watching as the food is prepared.

We dined at chequers recently and loved every minute. The restaurant is in a beautiful location, very quiet and peaceful. We had a delicious meal and plenty of it! The dessert of madeleines with freshly whipped lemon cream was amazing. We would advise anyone holidaying in deal and surrounding areas to visit this charming restaurant. The staff were attentive and... More

The sun was setting as we arrived and we had just enough time for a drink outside in the last rays of sunshine. It was catch up time and everyone was hungry. I did know the menu and Saturdays is a tasting menu. You eat a set menu and unless you have dislikes/food allergies everyone has the same meal. The... More

Booked table as husband wanted to sample the rotisserie chicken menu. We had not visited since restaurant has changed hands and I am so pleased we did. The menu was choice of two starters mains and deserts so you know food will be freshly cooked - in fact you can see the chef preparing and cooking the food. My husband... More

Welcoming, friendly staff made our visit special. Pieter remembered my friend who had dined there some weeks ago and he has genuine interest in guests/diners. The food was presented imaginatively and was cooked with skill by the talented chef. Good flavour combinations. This is a gem by the sea.
