Deal Destination Guide - Places To Eat

By Evie Kennedy | Monday, 10 October 2022

While The Boatman’s Reading Rooms has a beautiful kitchen that is fully equipped with everything you may need, we think there’s always time for a treat. Tantalise your taste buds with our Quince recommended restaurants in Deal.

Anyone for Brunch?

Positioned at the end of Deal pier, the Deal Pier Kitchen serves up the finest breakfast in the area. From healthier options, such as overnight oats to the more indulgent choice of lobster and crayfish benedict, this one is tough to resist. Get the girls together and enjoy a Bottomless Brunch on Fridays and Saturdays from £35pp. Indulge in 1.5 hours of unlimited prosecco, bellini’s or bloody marys alongside a snack, brunch and a pudding. Make sure you book in advance!


The Ultimate Pub Lunch:

When looking for the ultimate pub lunch there is nothing better than stumbling upon a cosy, fire lit pub with exposed brick walls and local ales. The Zetland Arms has everything you could wish for on a cold and blustery autumnal afternoon in Deal. With exceptional local seafood this isn’t your typical pub. Everything is made fresh to order with specials such as game pies and fresh fish caught just off the Kent coastline, which you can spot from your table.


The Best Fish and Chips:

Just a 16 minute walk from our seaside escape, The Boatman’s Reading Rooms, discover the best fish and chips in Deal at Sea View. With prices starting from £7.95, this seaside essential has been voted TripAdvisors Travellers Choice 2022 and the proof is in the pudding (or batter!). The menu has a wide variety of fish, to accompany your chips, and a selection of pies and burgers too. Ask for your food to be put into a takeaway box and enjoy while sitting on the pebbles of Deal seafront.

The Most Delicious Afternoon Tea:

Unlimited tea or coffee with Afternoon Tea? Sign us up! Afternoon Tea has become a tradition in the UK, particularly for seaside visits.  The Lane offers a £25pp pre-booked afternoon tea with a selection of delights from homemade sage and onion sausage rolls to passion fruit and mango Eton Mess. There is also something for everyone with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options such as vegan schnitzel and guacamole sliders and Lotus biscoff brookies. Why not bring the kids along? There is a special menu for the little ones from £12.50 which comes with their choice of fruit juice or milk.

The Dreamiest Ice Cream:

Room for a little pud? We can never resist a trip to Solleys Ice Cream Parlour and Farm. Located on Solleys farm there are plenty of activities for all ages – from a maize maze to tractor rides and why not finish the day off with an ice cream cone. With over 26 flavours to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice; from traditional vanilla and honeycomb crunch to the more obscure Turkish delight and Christmas pudding. There are also vegan, dairy free options available.
