Fantastic Frog and Scot

Reviewed by Herminius 28 September 2018 5 Out of 5 Stars

We took the last table in the restaurant on a very busy Saturday evening. The staff were friendly and had a great sense of humour.

The food was superb. Amongst our group, we enjoyed the celeriac tart, oysters and scallops to start, then the oyster mushroom tagliatelle, venison and beef afterwards. These were all presented beautifully, and were absolutely delicious.

The wine list was lengthy but easy to navigate. All in all, a brilliant evening. We left adamant that Frog and Scot deserves to be much higher up the Trip Advisor rankings for Deal.

“A quirky bistro with yellow canopies and mismatched furnishings; its unusual name refers to its French and Scottish owners. Large blackboard menus list refined, innately simple dishes which let the ingredients do the talking.”

This hip new opening is two minutes’ walk from the beach on a high street that bristles with quirky independent shops. Owned by friendly couple Benoit Dezecot and his partner Sarah Ross, who also run nearby wine bar Le Pinardier, it’s a slick all-day French bistro with chef David Hart (ex-Sportsman) at the helm. Expect starters like seared scallops with celeriac, crab with fennel, Whitstable oysters or seafood platters; and superior duck confit, hake with beurre blanc or baked halibut with cucumber velouté as mains. On weekend evenings most of the tables – many of which are in fact sharing benches – are booked, but you can always swing by for a well-sourced glass of wine, or bar snack at the counter. A set lunch menu is just £13.95 for two course.

I love this restaurant!

I have eaten here at least 6 times in the evenings and always gone home raving about every course. What you get is a fantastic cook that came come up with unusual twists on dishes. And each dish works perfectly. There is a blackboard that tells you where they get their food from – eg the superb The Black Pig, the local butcher around the corner . There is an excellent wine menu – and the house wines are very good. I always have a great evening here.

Loved this place!

This place is really popular, and it’s easy to see why. The menu isn’t extensive, in fact what they offer is all chalked up on boards, as they run out, it’s replaced with something new. I had the curried parsnip soup with an onion bhaji to start. I loved it. The soup was full of subtle flavour, and the bhaji was light and crisp. My other half had the herring to start. It came with a really fresh light salad, and he was equally impressed. I chose the hake for main course, it came with wilted greens and the lightest sauce. I ordered a side of home made chips, they were scrummy and the portion huge. My partner had the lamb. He loved it. We were too full for desserts sadly, but thoroughly enjoyed our meals. It has a really nice atmosphere, the staff are informed and friendly, and the wine list is impressive.
