It is clean and up to date, but it is also a step back in time as how ice cream parlours were and because i am now 60 plus i loved it. The staff were excellent and the service and aftercare was far in excess of that which you would expect from the sale of mainly ice creams.

Lady behind the counter didn't seem to have a lot of patience at all and was pulling faces while my other half was trying to help our children decide what to have, would have understood if it was busy but wasn't at the time. Lady who served us also didn't have her hair tied up and was touching everything with... More

Good location but very poor standard o hygiene. The woman serving used bare hands to serve ice cream, put flake in, take money and give change. Photo attached of woman getting flake from tub with bare hands.

We regularly stop at the beach parlour because they have a good priced menu for a stop during shopping or walking. They have a good snack menu as well as the old fashioned icecream sundaes etc. It really is a blast from the past.

Was desperate to come back here after a few years away. Love the old fashioned decor but is looking a bit scruffy and money needs to be spent on it. It was a bit grubby round the edges and felt unloved! Hope someone weilds a paint brush and a mop soon and keeps the place going. It was very busy... More

I love this place and so do my kids and husband. It's on the front with spectacular views of the front and offers a wider menu from hot fast food, to sandwiches and chicken pesto wraps, to ices, cakes and cream slices. Wash down with hot choc, ice teas or slushing/smoothies something for everyone.

My wife was born and bought up in Deal and she tells me that she and her friends used to frequent the Beach Parlour. It brings back a lot of happy memories for her and now I have some happy memories here. She says that it has not changed a lot from the early days. I for one, can recommend... More

But our food was not bad - I had a toasted cheese/onion sandwich and husband had backed potato with filling and both had a small side salad.
