Restaurant In Deal

Deal lies five miles west of the Goodwin Sands and is 'a limb' of the original Cinque Port of Sandwich. Allegedly it was here that Julius Caesar first landed on British shores in 55BC.

The area has much to offer the visitor including two castles built by Henry VIII - the Tudor Rose shaped one in Deal itself and Walmer Castle, his second fortification, traditionally the home of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports. As you would expect from a town steeped in seafaring and smuggling history, there are plenty of Ale Houses and quirky cobbled passageways as well as the unique Timeball Tower. To the landside of the restaurant is a pedestrian high street with a plethora of interesting individual shops, and right in front of the restaurant is the long pier stretching out to sea. This newly built, air-conditioned restaurant has a lovely Art Deco feeling to its interior and its colourful bespoke furnishing and features complemented by palm plants and original photographs of Deal in the early twentieth century. There is a large car park immediately to the rear of the restaurant and some free parking further along the seafront towards the picturesque fishing boats. Wheelchair access is excellent.

Our restaurant, located right on the seafront is the perfect place to eat after spending a day exploring this great coastal town. Like all of our restaurants, our restaurant in Deal has received a 5-star rating from local authorities and critics. This is thanks to our stellar service, fabulous food, and fantastic wine list.

Our restaurant in Deal offers a spectacular view of the town's beautiful seafront.

Like most restaurants in Deal, seafood is our speciality, but we also offer a great range of non-seafood and vegetarian options, as such, we cater for every taste. But for those who enjoy seafood, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better selection of dishes, or more delicious fish. Our daily specials are carefully selected from our skilled head chefs, often from among the best of the day's catch.

Our main menu contains seafood favourites and classics such as Fish Pie and Fish & Chips, but also seafood dishes you may not have had before, like Moules Marinières. Of course, everything is cooked and prepared to perfection.

Both our fish and meat come from sustainable sources and are carefully chosen so you can eat safe in the knowledge that your food was well sourced. We also have a children's menu which is prepared with the same care and attention as all our food, so you can be sure that with us, your family will be well cared for.

We are extremely proud of our wine selection, as each bottle has been chosen carefully to brilliantly complement and pair with our food. As such, every second of your meal will be one you will remember.

So, please visit us the next time you're in Deal. We're looking forward to welcoming you.
