Review on Frog and Scot

The Frog & Scot, a lively French bistro is a welcome addition to the Kent seaside town of Deal on the English Channel. Set on the High Street, a couple of minutes walk from the beach, it takes its name from owners Benoit who hails from France and Sarah from bonny Scotland, who have already established the popular Le Pinardier wine shop and bar, a few doors away.

The restaurant is laid out with simple wooden tables and chairs and there's additional seating at the marble topped bar. Large windows flood the room with lots of natural light and during summer months there's additional seating on the pavement, where you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the street.

Pulling in fresh local ingredients for his inventive French bistro style dishes is David Gadd, who formerly sharpened his knives at the Michelin starred The Sportsman in Seasalter. The blackboard menu changes regularly to reflect the best of the daily produce, but you can expect starters in the shape of seared scallops, celeriac purée and bacon or maybe pork rillettes with fennel and onion. Main courses embrace pan fried hake fillet with mussels au pistou or from the land roast leg and slow braised shoulder of lamb with minted roasting juices. Desserts conjure up salted caramel and warm chocolate mousse tartlette paired with hazelnut praline ice cream or lemon and lime posset with rhubarb and prosecco granita.

There's an innovative wine list to match the food featuring organic, biodynamic and natural wines.

    Birthday meal

    Simply outstanding meal worthy of a Michelin star!
    A very talented young chef, whose food I have eaten many times when he was at the sportsman. A real boost for Deal.

    The best restaurant in Deal

    The Frog and Scot, is by far the best place to eat in Deal, it has a lovely welcoming atmosphere with beautiful flowers on the tables.the food under David is fantastic and i love the use of local produce. There is a great selection of wine to choose from and it is not too expensive.

    A Deal lifesaver

    While there are many eateries in this smallish town, most are somewhat average (and a few below this). So hopes were high when Frog & Scot opened a while ago. After a few minor teething troubles (mostly in the form of uncomfy benches and strange acoustics), things have got better and better.

    The food is delicious and beautifully cooked (although those who are heavily vegetable-leaning might find the sides small). The lobster tagliatelle is heavenly, the steaks consistently excellent, and the pork rillettes and scallop starters never disappoint. The desserts appeal to even those without a sweet tooth. And the wine is, of course, spot on. It's certainly not cheap but you're essentially paying for the quality ingredients and inventive cooking.

    So, all in all it's a total winner and many Dealites hope and pray it keeps on drawing in the crowds. The chairs could still be comfier though!
