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. The real ciders typically feature one from a Kent cider. There's also a wide, ever-changing selection of national and international Craft beers, in cans and bottles.

Also available are wines, Prosecco, a range of gins (including one from Kent) and quality soft drinks.

Snacks include 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 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.

They also like cheese. There's the pub's Cheese Sunday, on the first Sunday of very month, and an unofficial Cheese Monday, with staff and customers bringing along their own contributions.

Dogs and children welcome. The pub is adjacent to public car parking.

Note: Hours vary according to the season so please check their FaceBook page for any updates.
