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

Just want to say what a lovely home cooked reasonably priced sunday roast we had here. It was the first time we ate here and we will return. We both had starters and the roast beef but we were too full for dessert. It was one of the best roasts iv had out as you can't usually beat one at... More

We stayed here on the way to and from France. Friendly staff, good pub food. Room was value for money with a kitchenette and fit a family of five very well. We stayed in two different rooms and both were clean and tidy. Parking could be a bit of a challenge but on both occasions we had no issue. Location... More

We recently had our wedding reception here. I was slightly nervous as a new management team had come in a few weeks before, well I had no need to be! Simon, Shelley and the team couldn't do more for us, they made our day fuss and stress free and with a couple of personal touches thrown in I wouldn't hesitate... More

On arrival we had a reasonably warm welcome having finally found our way into the bar. We were shown our room, the Dover apartment, which on the surface had everything we needed. So far so good other than the rather strong smell of stale cooking fat in the restaurant. However this soon changed when we were told that if we... More

It's places like this that make u stay away from the chained hotel groups. I was here for my best friends wedding and the service, attention to detail, food and accommodation was faultless. Normally I have loads to write about hotels that I stay in but I am stuck for words as everything was simply spot on, well done!!

Room and bathroom clean, very friendly service. Close to the center of Deal and Dover. I highly recommend and possible that once again use this hotel. In the morning a very good breakfast served by a smiling waitress. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet and cozy accommodation.

The pub looks beautiful from the outside and the staff were friendly but the food was terrible and took ages to arrive. Kid's Pizza was burnt and the curry was less than appetising. It's probably worth just sticking to drinks.

Very pretty and well presented little inn. Room in the courtyard was small but well appointed and very clean. Bed really comfortable with quality bedding and good ensuite. Staff were really friendly, welcoming & helpful. Excellent value for money and just minutes from the ferry.
