Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Somewhile ago now I had reason to write a somewhat critical review of a very dissappointing fish lunch in this restaurant.Today we decided to give it another go. What a difference! The lamb rump and its accompaniments were superb,the sweets were 1st class and the...service excellent. Well done! We will certainly not leave it so long again before returningMore

Me and my partner went here after our engagement for dinner and I told our lovely waitress what had just occurred and they brought out this beautiful plate with our dessert! Such lovely friendly staff and the dessert was to die for!

Four of us went for dinner as part of an overnight stay between Christmas and New Year. Without going into the detail of everyone's three courses, all I can say is (apart from them having no oysters) every course and dish we had was excellent....The service was polite and efficient, without being over-efficient, and the ambience and atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant without being too loud. The wine list was good and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back again when in Deal 👍More

We enjoyed our meal very much, focussing on the excellent fish menu. The atmosphere was relaxed, but with attentive and prompt service. The quality of the cooking was excellent. We look forward to being back soon.

My friend and I celebrated Xmas at Dunkerleys this week, it was great value for a 3 course Xmas meal and the food was excellent. Good portion sizes and delicious food. The wines are always good there and very well priced. The restaurant was full,...so there was a buzzy atmosphere and service was friendly and professional. We were really impressed and we had a fab night.More

I’ve eaten in the wonderful restaurant many times but tonight, after a long day driving I was starving and just needed a quick simple meal and a pint. The sausage and mash with onion gravy from the bar menu was to die for, plus a...pint of the fabulous local Time and Tide beer. Deal is very luck to have both Dunkerley’s and the local brewery.More

We came for the Gourmet Night, and the meal was excellent. Thank you Laura and the girls for their hard work and the kitchen staff to make our experience a great one! Food was perfect, with Halloween elements to it! Can't wait to come for...the next one.More

Have visited the restaurant and bistro many times with friends and family. Lovely atmosphere and good service every time. Great selection of menu choices specialising in seafood, with many other meat, vegetarian options at a reasonable price. I have lived in Deal for many years...and Dunkerleys is my first choice every time.More

Amazing breakfast, freshly cooked by Cheryl. It was completely delicious. Perfectly cooked eggs, grilled bacon, everything was hot. Probably one of the best I've ever had.

A real shame that we had an extremely average lunch catching up with family after 5 years. I had the skate wing, which was only half of one. I asked what it came with as I would have ordered a side with it, but was...told new potatoes and sugar snap peas. Well, it came with 4 tiny half potatoes and maybe 2 sugar snaps that had been chopped up. The chicken dish came with a heap of mash and some asparagus, so no comparison, which was annoying. The cheesy burger which was ordered had maybe 4 pieces of grated cheese melted on top, and overcooked french fries. We were very disappointed as it wasn't exactly cheap.More
