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.

“Two different set menus”

Reviewed 13th August 2017

This restaurant located on the High Street is a great find. It offers two set menus as well as specials. The cheaper set menu is “Scot” and has a Scottish influence. The Frog set menu is more expensive and has, wait for it, a French influence.

My fellow diner and I both jumped at the lobster risotto. Neither of us were disappointed – perfectly cooked. I chose the duck breast and leg and my companion the hake. Again, there were clean plates. We decide to have the 3rd course, ordering the lime and lemon posset with a blackberry and prosecco topping which according the waitress was one of their most popular desserts. Absolutely delicious. I was down from London but this restaurant could easily compete with some the of the restaurants I rate in the Big Smoke. This restaurant is definitely on the list when I return to the Deal area.

“Great location for lunch”

Reviewed 8th August 2017 – 5 out of 5 stars

We have had lunch here number times. They do a 2 course or 3 course set lunch option which is great value and the quality is just super. A real treat. The service is attentive and warm and they have a great selection of wines to go with the food. I can highly recommend the Frog and Scot! Give it a go if you are in town and have the time!
