Booked a table for my daughters 21st Birthday for 9 people and was NOT disappointed. Food and service was excellent. Manager who I spoke to when making my booking was very helpful and efficient and was made sure everything was perfect on the night. My daughter got a complimentary glass of Prosecco and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend The Deacon.

A first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. The range of gins was amazing and excellent recommendations helped our choice. We opted for small plates to give a variety and these provided a great range of flavours. Will come back and have already recommended to friends.

First time at the Deacon and would recommend and return. Not too happy with the music but I have to accept I am a not a "young" person and recognise the Deacon attracts a lot of young people who clearly enjoy that type of music. I particularly commend the staff attention on various issues - from the management to the waiting staff. Thank you

Our visit yesterday was only marred by the fact that the Sunday Roast had all been served and there was none left by 1700! Go early if you like the roast as I do! We had Fish Pie, which was very nice but just not the same! Malbec went down well though! Also please please put the Sticky Toffee Pudding back on the dessert menu!

Great food and service, outstanding fish & chips you need to invite Gordon Ramsey to taste these and see how its done. Only downside was the noise levels which seemed to increase as time went on - not sure why people need to shout when eating!

I'm not sure why people feel the need to shout either Mr Turner! I'm really pleased you enjoyed the Fish N Chips though.

£4.50 for a very small bucket of chips was disgraceful they should have been part of the main anyway (Duck Two ways). Also all our chips x3 mains had an "off" fat oil taste, and no that s no a dripping taste. The chips did not not taste like the dripping chips you get at most F&C shops in Yorkshire. I think something is wrong with your chips. No Real Ale amongst your beers just craft disappointing.

Restaurant Response

I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed - there is a lot more to The Deacon to consider than simply chips though. We don't sell cask ale no unfortunately - The Taps do a good job of that down the road. Our cellars are bloody well kept though.

background noise levels were very high. This needs addressing as they could be above the recomended limit. The food is nice but is a bit expensive. The sweet looked like it had been thrown on to the plate, never seen Strawberries and icecream on an 200mm plate!
