This place does a roaring trade on the front at Deal. It's like stepping into a time warp with the typical 1960s ice cream parlour decor. I suspect the fixed tables and chairs may have been installed when folks were slimmer too as it can be a little tight in places! This place is clean, efficient and friendly offering a... More

Friendly family run business. We go in for breakfast bacon baps or the obligatory tea cakes with jams as they are buttery marvels, huge and yummy.

I have been visiting years for years but yesterday was the first time I have eaten a big ole fat burger, it was a bargain and it was delicious, washed down with a divine chocolate milk shake the diet is clearly cancelled..... I love Deal beach parlour it has such charm and character. If you fancy a very sinful icecream... More

After a walk along the beach front with family we decided to stop for a drink and get the children ice creams. Ended up having the most amazing banoffee waffle and my niece had a chocolate waffle. Would highly recommend as they were delicious. Staff were very friendly and service was great. Will definitely be visiting again

Very pleasant ice cream parlour on the National Holidays coastal tour. Very good value and charming service. Particularly good memory of the Parlour (Jan '14) because the proprietress very kindly dried my friend's topcoat after she had been well and truly drenched by a motorist driving through a large roadside puddle. Magazines and papers to read, too.

Yes, it was like going back to the 1960's for the four of us, after a lovely walk through Deal town & a great walk along the beach. Ice cream , tea, & cake was called for, and it was all nice, that's about it, nice, but the service was dreadful. The woman who looks in charge of this Gaff... More

Got a large cone with mixed flavours.......so nice.....a good old fashioned ice cream parlour, with good staff, good standards and good products.... Prices are VFM.... We... More

A time warp of a place (though to what era, I wasn't sure) but absolutely brilliant. Cheerful service and traditional fayre. Options include knickerbocker glory, nut sundaes and toasted teacakes! Diabetics and WeightWatchers members probably want to give it a wide berth. It's cheap as chips, too. You must be patient, though; being this good means that it gets absolutely... More

I have been going to this place for 57 years now and can only say the ice cream dishes are good and also priced a lot cheaper than some modern day places. Yes it does get very busy in the summer and a lot of people queue along the pavement outside for take away cones and ices surely that alone... More
