for inventive recipes of the familar at fair prices for best freshness, treat yourself to lunch or dinner. Assume lunch or saturday nights will be more celebratory!

Stayed at The Rose for a few days with our dog and booked the restaurant for the second night. Made us all very welcome. Had Whitstable oysters and potted crab for starters, neither of which we could fault and thoroughly enjoyed. Hake and lemon sole for mains, again lovely flavours. All the flavours were inventive but worked beautifully together. Will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our meal here apart from a couple of small issues. First, my hake dish was supposed to include poached mussels according to the menu. However, there were none visible when the food arrived, when I raised this I was told that extra ragout had been added as the mussels had all gone, and was offered some money off the bill. I was slightly disappointed because had I known about that I probably would have ordered something else. It just wasn't quite the dish I was expecting which let down my overall experience. The second thing was that although we ordere 2 portions of fries only one arrived yet we were charged for 2 on the bill. However, this was quickly recitified and I can't fault the service or the overall atmosphere and the food we did have was lovely. Just a shame those couple of issues slightly clouded what was otherwise a lovely lunch. I'm sure we'll be back despite this though!

Bkd a late Sunday lunch table @ the Rose & sat inside. All food was excellent.
Some of the serving staff needed to pay more attention to diners trying to get their attention, but overall everything was very good

The menu and quality of the food was very good indeed, sadly our dining experience was spoilt by the extremely loud conversation from people on the next table , banging and crashing from the open kitchen area, and the coffee machine and loud cocktail shaking.
perhaps the other half of the restaurant away from the kitchen would have been better.
I would still recommend it as we may have just hit a bad evening.

The place is cute and the staff is friendly.
The food wants to be posh, but it doesn't live up to standards. The potted crab was too oily and half solid when it came to the table, like it was kept in a freezer. The portions are unnecessarily large (I know it sounds like a good thing but it would be best smaller but higher quality) - I couldn't finish the chicken schnitzel and had to skip dessert which I was looking forward to.
The G&T was too strong, unbalanced and unpleasant to drink.

Lunchtime- only two of us instead of four - wasn’t a problem. Table was ready. Food was timely and really delicious. Good wines at reasonable prices - really interesting selection.
Service a little bit and miss. Great place and would come again for sure.

Food was really delicious.
Noise from the blender in the open kitchen was a bit intrusive, sounded like someone doing DIY in the restaurant
Staff are friendly, service was good but could be a bit more attentive rather than having to be called over every time.

Delicious fresh food, perfectly cooked, and beautifully presented. We choose the fish that day, scallops, hake and mussels, sole and cucumber. We started with salted almonds, and the best ever orange infused green olives. We are coming back for more! Looking forward to it!

So fresh and flavourful, beautifully and carefully prepared. Staff were exceptional, and the environment was relaxed but special. We ate our way around Deal over 4 days and this was by far the most outstanding meal. A real appreciation of how to treat food and guests.
