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

We both greatly enjoyed the set lunch menu which at £13.95 for three courses was amazing value. For starters we enjoyed the sardines and Cajun chicken, followed by the stir fried beef with vegetables and noodles and for desert the apricot and almond tart and the syrup pudding with custard. Everything was well presented and very tasty. The house wine... More
