As above. Lovely meal, lovely food. Nothing more really to say but apparently I can't submit this until I have 100 characters.

Enjoyed a family evening meal here, was greeted by the friendly and polite owners, the menu is well balanced with good variety. The food is well cooked with good quality ingredients. The scallop starter and espresso brûlée desert are of notable mention. The restaurant has a good atmosphere with a nice sea theme. The only sight downfall was the waitress... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner here, whilst watching Deal carnival parade by the window! (This was not planned by us!) There is a very pleasant atmosphere with friendly, efficient staff and the menu offered us a good choice. The food was excellent, with large portions. I can recommend this restaurant .

Always have been a great fan as food is consistently good and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Even when very busy you never have to shout across the table!! Sunday lunch did not disappoint , all the family enjoyed the food and the service was absolutely perfect, in previous visit sometimes the service was , at times ,slightly 'iffy'... More

This restaurant is one of the very best we have been to. The food was cooked to perfection and I especially liked the fact that it is nearly all locally sourced. Lovely atmosphere and spotless and the prices are very reasonable. Wiltshire team

This is my favourite place to eat out as everything has been thought through. I had the steak for my main course and it was perfectly cooked. There's no music drowning out your conversation and I really cannot find fault with anything.

Excellent service and friendliness from all staff, provided details of meals which contained gluten when asked-which was less than a handful across the whole menu. Food was excellent and very tasty. Very clean and a nice quiet setting, decent soul/disco music was played during my visit-which gave the place a relaxed feel.

We asked for a bottle of champagne but were told they only had Moet & Chandon or Freixenet,(which is a Cava!)None of us like M & C so we asked for Veuve Cliquot or similar but the young lady came back and told us they were sold out!!!!...
