Just Reproach14 King Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This friendly, family-run micro-pub is located in Deal's town centre. It has a welcoming, convivial atmosphere which encourages conversation between customers.
With its high benches and table service, the pub takes everything back to the absolute fundamentals: no keg, no fruit machines, no music. Fines are levied for using a mobile phone to make and receive calls and risk severe opprobrium (derision) from other customers!!
Ale and cider is gravity dispensed from a temperature-controlled cool room. Four real ales are on offer, five on a Friday, with at least one from a Kent brewery. At least one of the ciders is from a Kent cider maker. There's also a wide, ever-changing selection of national and international Craft beers, in cans and bottles.
Also available are wines from the local Barnsole vineyard & Australia, Prosecco, a range of gins (including one from Kent) and quality soft drinks.
Snacks include locally made pork pies, scotch eggs and local cheese with home-made pickled onions to die for. The pub is also a handy place for a pint while waiting for your Indian take-away from across the street.
The pub is kept very busy with a variety of events, including Cheese Sunday, quiz nights, vegetable growing competitions, cycling and golf. Many of these are charity events with over £20,000 being raised, which includes £14,000 for the Pilgrims Hospice.
Dogs and children welcome. The pub is adjacent to public car parking.
