Seafood-based menu in a long-running seafront hotel

At a glance

Open all year
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

Run with down-to-earth friendliness by Ian and Linda Dunkerley, this relaxed and homely seafront hotel has a jauntily inviting air. Fuss-free dishes bring fresh local materials together in well-balanced combinations, and here in Deal seafood is the main deal, getting the show on the road with the likes of roast herring with horseradish slaw. The main event might star pan-fried turbot fillet on saffron velouté with kale and turned potatoes, or deep-fried local cod fillet with the usual accompaniments. If you need something meaty, there's confit pork belly with bacon, cabbage and champ, and, to finish, perhaps tarte Tatin with cinnamon ice cream.
