Lovely chilled Sunday lunch with a table for 2 in the window. We ordered the confit duck and porchetta. Both meals were executed perfectly and we cleared our plates. Has a lovely feel to the place and service was attentive. Can’t wait to visit again!

This is an exceptional place, which is the equivalent quality of a good restaurant in Paris or the smarter or cooler parts of London. They do great cocktails too.

The decor and rooms (two) are very welcoming - warm in winter with a REAL fire!

I recommend it highly.

Its the first time we had eaten in the Rose although we are local - we were out to celebrate an anniversary. The decor, ambience and welcome was lovely. The service good but value for money not so good and rather mean. The starters were very small portions with little seasoning. The burger main resembled Nouvelle Cuisine, small bun with burger, half a gherkin and a metal cup of french fries. A side of sour dough at £4......
When dinning out you want to feel special, have a good experience and of course value for money, at the Rose it feels like style over substance with a chef that it clearly ensuring good profit margins, and not ensuring a good dinning experience.

First visit to The Rose, and well worth it. We ate early and it was quiet at 6.30PM. Excellent cocktails at the bar, followed by a really imaginative two-course meal featuring trout and Brussels to start, followed by crispy duck confit; my son had the burger. Good wine list with lots of local choices. Highly recommended.

Menu choices weren’t what a few of our party would normally choose. So a wider choice of menu would be preferable.
However the food was delicious. The service good and efficient.
Will definitely come again. I hear the Sunday roast is a speciality.

Although I love the look, the vibe and the feel of this restaurant (and I would be a regular customer as it is very local to me) the food is frequently a disappointment. This time, we had the Chicken Schnitzel (a big slab of dense chicken, served with only celeriac to ease it along) and the Glazed Cod - struggled to find an appropriate veg to accompany it, had to settle for the cabbage side. This turned out to be a wedge which was nicely charred, with some tender parts, but tough in the thickest part of the wedge. The beans which came with it were tasteless. None of it bad enough to send back, but none of it giving much pleasure. The service was polite, attentive and professional.

Welcome? Great. Service? Great and very friendly. Cocktails? Brilliant.

Confit of Duck? Excellent.
Risotto? We had to send it back.

The food is expensive (even the Confit of Duck); but their Risotto is a disaster and really needs re-evaluation. The two in my party had ordered it considered the Risotto to be poorly seasoned and of the consistency of lukewarm thin porridge. A great pity.

I was so looking forward to the evening but it was disappointing. Service was average and food did not merit prices. It just isn’t hitting the spot any more. I will not be rushing back

We visited the Rose both on Saturday evening and for Sunday lunch and for me, by far the best food was the Sunday roast chicken. Absolutely delicious & I highly recommend. My Saturday evening food was very mediocre and bland (chicken schnitzel) but my companions food choices were much better apparently (one duck and one pumpkin which was excellent so I was told).
I love the hotels/restaurants ambiance but I did find the food portions on the small side and overpriced. Service was average, they could have been a bit more attentive, asking if we’d like more drinks etc.. but it was ok.
I would definitely return for a special occasion if I’m ever in Deal again and probably for Sunday lunch.

Both service and food were excellent. Dishes very nicely cooked, imaginative combinations and presentation. Duck confit tender yet crispy; glazed cod superb on an interesting bed of vegetables and sea samphire. The fish portion could have been a tad more generous in size but otherwise 5 stars. Wine excellent, too. Unusual and interesting deserts, again wonderful combinations. Whilst a little on the pricy sice, a very enjoyable experience. Will go again soon.

We had dinner at the Rose. The ambiance was lovely, very comfortable with just the right amount of lighting and full of chatter but never too loud or noisy. The service was excellent, very efficient and attentive but never overly so. The menu is creative using local ingredients made to taste delicious and comforting. One of the places that makes you feel good!

We ordered the ox cheek which was excellent, and the other main course was the cod which came on a bed of softened sautéed onions. The cod was covered in a miso glaze which unfortunately dominated the fish completely and the delicate flavour of the cod was lost. We also found the food slightly mean in portions and very salty. The service was very friendly and the cocktails were good. I think the wine is very marked up and that together with the slightly mean portions make for a lukewarm experience.
