A GOOD DEAL
The eight-bedroom The Rose Inn in Deal is one of the most stylish places to stay on the Kent coast. And, even if you haven’t booked a room, its glorious restaurant is well worth a visit. You’ll find the scene set by terrazzo tables and Deal-sourced paintings and antiques. The menu changes with the seasons, always using British ingredients – current favourites include violet artichokes with white beans, dandelion and goat’s curd and the lemon verbena posset. From £90 per night (therosedeal.com).
