Very good food yet again

A great place to eat, but why are the menu covers broken and looking a bit grubby? Easy enough to print out fresh menus. We were surprised the owner missed this. But food was very good, everyone enjoyed their meal with one exception who disliked the steak. Their comment was, why do something odd... read more

My wife and I are regular visits to Deal and among the very top of the wonderful places to eat in the area is The Three Compasses. The food is excellent and beautifully cooked, the wine list is very reasonable and the team doing their stuff are great fun. It all adds up to a great experience - wonderful food,... More

What a find! It's great to see a chef put on a menu that's just a bit different. We had a lovely meal at the Three Compases last night. Good service too, and I thought the price was very reasonable for both the food and the wine. We will definitely be back!

Just returned from the best meal of our week in Deal. My calf liver was cooked to perfection and my wife's fillet steak was really good. Service was excellent and very friendly. The price when considering the quality was very reasonable. As a bonus I was offered and accepted an oyster fresh fom France.

Went here for a family Sunday lunch. The food was excellent - really tasty and generous portions (so good in fact we only managed a main course). The staff were really attentive and it wasn't over crowded. Ideally located on the seafront at Deal but slightly out of the way of the busier areas. A great find and well worth... More

A girlfriend and I went for dinner here on Thursday and had a lovely evening which isn't always the case for two women on their own. We had probably the best meal we have had in Deal. Delicious fresh fish for my friend and my favourite liver for me cooked to perfection.A good selection of vegetables and a divine sauce.... More

This is a lovely place I stumbled into by accident whilst visiting Deal over the Easter weekend. It seems the restaurant was converted from a pub. The interior is kept neutral but calming at the same time. The food is excellent and the value for money as well as being locally sourced by the looks of it. The service is... More
