The front staff are always cheery and give recognition to regular patrons. They are knowledgeable of the menu and can give good advice on it and the wines in the cellar. Good ambience and so pleeasant to be in company with other diners who can talk to their table,not at them.. Always a pleasure to visit.

Lovely place with great food and attentive service. Don’t know if the women’s loo was as interesting as the men’s which I used inadvertently! Would definitely recommend and if in the area would visit again. Fresh ingredients plenty of skill in the cooking - delightful

Nice restaurant conveniently located. We went on a Friday evening in September. We found it was a little quiet which meant that when we arrived, we were seated, given our drinks and even asked to order food within five minutes, so it did feel a bit rushed. The food though was delicious and reasonably good value. Worth a visit!

It was a quiet Friday lunchtime, service was attentive and just at the right pace (not rushed and not slow). The place has a relaxing ambience, well designed artwork and interior. Good menu choices, not overwhelming. Quality wines, I had the house white which was spot on. The smoked salmon starter was a salmon steak, freshly smoked in a smoker, which fell apart beautifully and had enough moisture (not dried out) to tantalise the tongue. This was served with some highly flavoured garlic mayonnaises and petite tomato and cucumber swirls. Delicious. I had the shoulder of lamb for main, with creamy mash. The lamb was melt in the mouth and sticky with a rich jus that had plenty of depth. Portion sizes were ample, without being over indulgent. Friendly staff who provided good advice and guidance on the food and wines. Will go again.

Not a good start. For a 19:15 booking in a then almost empty restaurant being shown to an upstairs table immediately next to the Gents was almost unbelievable. However when staff were advised that this was not acceptable we were offered and accepted a very nice table on ground floor! What's that about? Food and wine (good selection of English wines) was Ok but in no way special/unusual/exceptional and definitely overpriced for what it was.

What stood out for us was the highly efficient and friendly service. The staff knew about the menu to a great depth and were very helpful, particularly for a gluten free diet. The food was gorgeous, and having a set menu on a Sunday night made things easier to choose.

First visit for a celebratory meal. Warm welcome, food beautifully presented, all cooked to perfection and delicious. Main portions rather small. Plenty room for dessert! Had we not had dessert, the menfolk would have left hungry. We were sat upstairs with only one other table occupied; overall lacking ambience. Friendly service but apologetic for presenting us with wet glasses and bread plates ! I don’t understand why they were not dried before presenting to us ? Overall, a lovely evening, but my high expectations from ready reviews were not fully met. Expect to be awarding 4 or 5 stars for fine dining price tag, but unfortunately not on this occasion.

The welcome was excellent and the service was just right, so friendly and efficient throughout the entire meal. The food was fabulous, I cannot praise it highly enough! This was not my first visit but I did bring along some friends after I had said how good it was. You are always a little nervous when recommending where to eat, even more so when they are sat with you; I should not have worried, they were 'blown away', their words not mine with the whole evening.
Just fantastic but don't tell too many people :-)

Food fabulous. Scallop starter delicious, as was the lamb with minted potatoes, same goes for the passion fruit souffle. Everything beautifully presented and the decor was original and creative. The experience was slightly marred by a frosty reception. I had booked and reconfirmed a table for 1.00 pm. There were two members of staff behind the bar when we arrived but sadly no greeting or acknowledgement. Oh and was also told "you're late" as we were indeed 5 mins late. Gave an initial poor impression. Service after that was impeccable so will ignore grumpiness of staff on that occasion.

I found the side of salad wonderful and a real bargain but my Lamb entre was dry and tasteless. I had been here two years ago and always planned to come back, but I understand that the restaurant was sold and my food just ran the gamut from ordinary to inedible. The people I was with seemed fine with their orders but mine was awful. I guess I ordered the wrong thing. But then, why was it on the menu. If everything else was better, mine should not have been on the menu

Very much enjoyed our first visit to Victuals and Co. Food was excellent, fabulous wine list, and the added benefit of having Steve Thomas taking your orders (as well as exhibiting his works).
Very much recommended for "that special occasion".

We had only one night to dine in Deal and we struck gold here. Food was absolutely amazing and atmosphere cosy and intimate. Topped off by reasonable prices and charming staff we couldn’t have asked for more.
