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.

Bought Fish and chips, battered sausage and Halloumi fries, absolutely 💯 tasty! Piping hot, crispy chips and loads of them! Service is very friendly, welcomed on arrival and told how long the food would take.

They're back! This has always been a brilliant fish and chip shop. On the corner of an ordinary terrace, it's something of a "local's secret". Unlike some it won't necessarily be mentioned in the Telegraph travel guide or Conde Nast, but the Fryer Tuck consistently...cooks chips which basically spoil most other chip shops for those of us in the know. But don't ever think this is a "just for locals" place - it's a family business run by owners who really care about their quality and range, and there's always a friendly welcome and a chat. It's just outside the edge of the main Conservation Area, near a lot of the AirBnBs and guest houses, and it's well worth the few minutes walk from the end of Middle Street. You won't regret it, I promise. Sadly they had to close for a while to source replacement equipment (no easy task, it turns out) but summer 2023 has seen their much anticipated return. We'd missed them, and today's chips confirmed they're still the best in town.More

Simply Fantastic Fish and Chips. All cooked fresh on order - be patient as it may take a while (25 minutes in my case) but so worth it. You may not be aware that they have been closed for 14 months due to fryer issues...and are getting back into the swing of things hence service might be a bit slower than normal. But be patient and love the end output - the batter melts in the mouthMore

So glad the Fryer Tuck is open again. Must be the best fish and chip shop in Kent. Great food and such a friendly team. Their menu has something for everyone. Nice to see a family run business doing so well

My wife and I just moved to Deal and live close to Fryer Tuck. We hoped that it would be at least half decent due to it’s proximity. The fact is, it’s extraordinary. We have had takeaway from them three times and it may just...be the best fish and chips we’ve ever had. What’s even more important is that the staff are so friendly, they are already starting to seem like family (the ones you want to be around!), plus, just waiting for your order is a pleasure as the place seems to be a meeting area for the best of the locals.More

On holiday in the area, put an order in by phone and it was ready when promised. They have a good selection of dishes, my Haddock was cooked well, and they fry their chips perfectly. All serving crew are friendly and efficient.

Hi there, my previous response seems to have disappeared so I wanted to re-address your review. For a number of reasons, I wondered if you'd reviewed the correct shop as we closed at 9pm at the time of your review. Second, we hadn't run out...More

Visited twice this summer and wasn’t disappointed! Huge portions, friendly staff, yummy food and gluten & dairy free options. I often worry eating out with intolerances but was reassured with the knowledge and practices of the staff about the separate gluten free fryer & wrapping...of the food. Gluten free batter on the fish is light & crisp. Chips are perfect! Will definitely be visiting again and telling friends & family to visit!More

Firstly the food was amazing. Best fish and chips I've had in yonks. I was in Deal for the weekend and love a seaside fish and chips but have many allergies to deal with. The staff were extraordinary and puled out all the stops to...deliver me a gluten free flour that contained no chickpea. And boy did they deliver. It was delicious, perfect even! I will be going back every time we are in Deal!More

This place has the best batter, the best banter and the best menu selection I’ve ever come across in a fish & chip shop. It was so good, I went back twice during a weeks stay in Deal. The menu is modern (amazing Gluten Free...batter - truly awesome), with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options all on offer. The portion sizes are more than generous and every single member of staff makes you feel welcome and at home. This is a neighbourhood corner stone that should truly be celebrated, and judging by the amount of local customers it seems to be! Do yourself a favour, if you’re in the area, make sure you visit and experience it for yourself. A true gem. An easy 5 stars from me, - The “Glutenated Glutenator”More
