We stay in Deal sometimes twice a year. First day's evening meal is always a take-out from the Middle Street Fish Bar. We've learnt to be first in the queue before it opens because everything is cooked to order. The highest commendation to this place.

I have to say I was surprised by the last two reviews as I have never experienced any problems when visiting here. The food is amazing; the best fish and chips I have ever had. The service in both the restaurant and front counter is excellent. Everything is very fresh and cooked to order - meaning the batter is never... More

There is no doubt that the fish and chips here are good! We have been visiting for years. However we will never return after vile treatment by the owner, who refused to let our autistic son have a child's meal and made us so uncomfortable that we left. We've never been treated with such uncaring rudeness and prejudice before. The... More

We were looking forward to fish and chips in this bar, as our previous visit left a lasting impression on us. However, as we entered through the door, I wished the man behind the deep fat fryer a Good Afternoon. Sadly I got no response, so I asked if everything was alright. Then he actually looked up at me and... More

It was nice to have really nice batter that complemented the fish. A lucky find just off the sea front. Chips were pretty good as well.

Really nice little restaurant at the back of the fish and chip shop. The cod and chips were great. Really light and crispy batter.

Truly superb fish and chips. Batter was the best that we've ever tasted; it was light, crispy and golden. Fish tasted so so fresh and we wanted more as it was so good. Chips were stunning and had a gorgeous golden colour and were moist and crisp; total perfection. This place has never changed in 30+ years and cannot be... More

Very nice cod and chips. Fish was succulent, and the batter crispy (a crunch without being rock-solid). Chips nicely cooked (not crispy, apart from the 'scraps' - so a nice mix) and not at all greasy. Two small cod, two large chips and one mushy peas - £12. Cheerful service. Queuing out of the door when we arrived shortly after... More

Get there early because the close as soon as the days catch runs out and I'm not kidding! Fresh fish is just the start. The chips are crisp on the outside and fluffy inside and they remain delicious even after they chill down.

Thank Ken M
