I have always wanted to go to this restaurant, and on Sunday my husband had to work in Deal so he took me to Dunkerley's for lunch. He asked if we could go into the restaurant and was told yes. Unfortunately after buying a bottle of wine he was told there had been a mistake with a booking and therefore was full. We were offered to eat in the bar, although not what he had planned we had a lovely time and met a lovely couple and spent some time chatting with them who reassured us that it this doesn't normally happen. They are regular diners. I must say although this was a little disappointing that we could not dine in the restaurant we both thought the food was some of the best we have ever had. The staff coped admirably and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. We are even looking to stay in the hotel so we can have some more of their wonderful food. Thank you all for a lovely meal. Very highly recommended.
