Some rough edges but has only recently been taken over by a new couple - sure with a bit more settling in things will come together. Double room was road side and room not insulated the best, sofa beds downstairs not the... More

We stayed here overnight with our three children the night before we were due to catch the ferry from Dover. We had an early ferry booked and it took us 15 mins to get from the pub to the ferry on a relatively simple route. Very impressed with the accommodation itself, we stayed in the 'deal' apartment, which comfortably accommodated... More

We stayed for one night in a double room. On arrival we were met by the owners who were both friendly and welcoming, the bar was empty but it was 10:30pm on a Tuesday night. The room itself was adequate for a night or two and the price is fair. Decor wise (if this bothers you) the room was out... More

We had one of 2 family apartments. There was an upstairs bedroom with a full bath and 2 sofa beds downstairs with a half bath and a full kitchen. The service was gresat. The pub had excellent food both for dinner and the full English breakfast. The only negative was the lack of air conditioning which, while normal here, was... More

Looking for somewhere to have an evening meal in Deal for visiting family, I did a last minute booking for the restaurant on Tuesday evening. We were given a warm welcome by the manager and this set the tone for the whole experience. The place was clean and smart while retaining the character of the old building; the menu was... More
