Came here with a few friends (when it was allowed) and had a great time. Food was delicious, and the IPA beer amazing. Would recommend coming here anytime.

Visited for lunch. Very covid safe and staff very attentive and professional. I had ham hock to start...came with a delicious piccalli relish. I'd read a bad review about the fish and chips but decided to try it. Got to say ..it was delicious. Crispy...batter ( not greasy) lovely fish, chunky chips and minted peas. All served with tartare sauce. We then had a look around the deli and bought a few items for home. Thoroughly recommend it.More

Visited the restaurant for the first time yesterday evening and from start to finish the whole experience was amazing, customer service, food WOW hands down the best food I have had for a long time. We had a three course meal and wasent sure which...dessert to go for, Tom chose one for us and didn’t tell us (we allowed him and trusted him enough to choose for us) he also gave us a dessert wine to go perfect with it. Sticky toffee pudding! Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again soonMore

Has been a favourite of ours for many years and I am delighted that the increase in size has not resulted in a deterioration in quality which is excellent.

We haven’t been for a long time and we were so thrilled to be back for an excellent meal. The new restaurant (well new for us) is lovely, so much nicer than the previous one. There was hand sanitizer and staff wearing masks, felt very...safe but also still felt ‘normal’. The food.....we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate, meatball soup, tandoori prawn shish, and then the fish and chips followed by sticky toffee pudding and passion fruit Creme brûlée. Everything was fresh and delicious, everything we have come to expect from Deli.More

Wonderful, post-lock down meal with family at Delifonseca Dockside. Attentive service, great anti-Covid measure in place and an excellent menu. Among the dishes (mains) that we had were the Flat Iron steak (with unexpectedly large Cornish Pasty), Haddock and Chips, Sausage and Mash, all executed...to perfection. The spicy (and peppery) Meatball Soup starter was as good as it sounded as was the Ham Hock Terrine. All in all, a great experience for all eight of us.More

Hi The main menu is served from 12 midday until close. They don't have a separate lunch menu but do have smaller meals and soups. Hope this helps

Hi Lunch starts at 12 noon, however if you want breakfast I would recommend getting there before 11.30am, all the produce is fresh so the later you arrive you run the risk of them not having everything...but the breakfast... More
