Fabulous space with glass ceiling and tons of light with brick walls. Narrow menu but enough. Empty when we had dinner but nice reception and service. Food was good but 2 comments/complaints. The "special " appetizer said prawns, but when it arrived no prawns just tiny bay shrimp! Give me a break. On the duck confit dish, nicely prepared but... More

The menus on the website bare no resemblance to what's on offer in the restaurant, the restaurant was full and only one waiter and the two owners trying to run both the bar and restaurant, waited an hour for the starters to arrive. Food no more than average. Overall very disappointing.

A perfect night out with my partner and young StepDaughter. We stumbled upon the Courtyard while trying to find somewhere to eat during a last minute seaside getaway. We were all delighted by the knowledgeable and friendly staff - not pretentious or over-bearing - just right. The food was fresh, delicious and perfectly cooked. The option of a half portions...

In the last two months me and my family have been here three times. Each visit has been for a big occasion and each time the staff have bent over backwards to make everything perfect. Food is always absolutely amazing. I have nothing but high praise for this place.

We took our mum for a special meal for Mother's Day and enjoyed a lovely 3 course menu. The menu was well priced with a good selection and backed up by good service. On this special day there was a lot of attention by the owner in the unique table decorations which was a lovely touch. Thoroughly enjoyed the day... More

My family of 4 arrived from a day out in near by Walmer hungry! The children wanted fish and chips. We drove around Deal and nowhere was open and we stumbled upon this restaurant. They were just about to close the kitchen, but instead of turning us away they sat us down and catered for us all. The children asked... More

I attended a wake here following a family funeral and I ave to say I was very surprised by the whole place! It looks nothing from the outside but once you get inside, it is huge. Lots of seating, lots of light (I actually had to keep my sunglasses on inside, it was amazing). The staff were friendly, quick and... More
