A proper town pub in the old part of Deal. Visited yesterday on a cold and wet day in Deal. Enjoyed a couple of excellent pints of Dark Star. A pint and a gin and tonic came to £5.20. Too bad I was driving, otherwise...More

I was amazed by the few reviews that only gave a one out of five! We have never experienced rude or agressive behaviour by the staff,, far from it. Perhaps some visitors don't read the signage which says that payment is by cash only, no...More

Traditional boozer in overpriced conservation area of Deal. The once famed happy half hour ( 17.30 -18.00) is now a miserable 24 minutes of pints at an inch short of the measure. Although you will get a big smile off the frightening landlady when you...More

Nice enough but quite small and modest selection of draught beer. Pleasant space but hardly memorable
