Tucked away in a side street off the beaten track this wonderful restaurant made our holiday. Discovered through trip advisor we took a risk and were so pleased. Exquisite food, friendly and helpful staff and a lovely venue. For us Deal was a discovery and the court yard was the highlight.

We were visiting Deal so we really didn't know what was around. Our B&B had recommended this restaurant so we gave it a go. It was a really quirky atmosphere! It was lovely to go somewhere different, it added a lot to our dining experience. We were greeted by really friendly staff, and given the choice regarding where we wanted... More

We regularly visit this restaurant now, having moved into St Margarets bay recently. We took my Parents-in-Law last weekend and they loved it too. Fantastic few, friendly staff and fabulous wine! Do ask the owners recommendations for wine as he is always spot on. Thanks guys and see you soon! A & C x

My husband and I are Americans that summer every year in a Deal. We always look forward to going to The Court Yard, our favorite restaurant in Deal. When we heard that there was a new owner we were a bit worried, but that changed our first visit. The new owner and his family are so nice and friendly. The... More

We had a wonderful time at the Courtyard restaurant last night. The owner and his wife are so friendly, as well as the other staff who really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The food was delicious and good value for money. You won't go home hungry here! The home made skin on chips were to... More

Most, but not all, restaurants in Deal have a single vegetarian option on their menu. Some have nothing but a tired lasagne or equivalent. The Courtyard stands out as having a separate menu for vegetarians and good quality food. The lunchtime menu also caters for vegetarians. Full marks for that and for the friendly service. The setting is great and... More
