An old pub situated just across the road from Deal Pier. we've been meaning to go in there for a while and a cold February day found us doing just that. There was plenty of seating inside which given the time of year wasn't surprising. There was a few "regulars" at the bar and a few family groups eating at...

Had really nice fresh fish & chips from the menu,very friendly service good value for money. Would rather it was served on a plate not a lump of wood! but that's just me still tasted good.Cozy bar with sea view if you in the bay window area. Nice fire With two big Sofa's to relax on.

The only veggie option on the whole menu was a Portobello Mushroom Burger with Stilton cheese. When it arrived it was in a white bun with chips that were heavily salted. Not only about as unhealthy as you can get, but bad value at £10.95. Shame, because the pub itself is friendly and comfortable, but with two veggies in the...

Don't go to this place, awful service, wrong food, I reckon all the kitchen staff must of been hung over from their Halloween party the previous night but that is really no excuse. The staff really didn't care and after waiting over an hour I just had to leave, starving hungry and really disappointed. Has this place had new owners...

Hello, i can only but apologise, i am aware of the mishap on Sunday and i assure you it has been addressed. It was not the kitchens fault, the waitress did not put the order through, I have been here 7 years now and sometimes i do misjudge peoples ability's when interviewing. Its not until you put a person into...

Excellent pub. Normally seafront pubs can be hit or miss. Definitely a hit and the food here was excellent. Friendly owners and well kept pub. A large seating area outside for when the weather is good.

We visited during the Summer and enjoyed a lunch from The Kings Head and basked in the glorious sunshine. Following a breezy seaside walk we stopped for lunch. The serving staff were welcoming and friendly and drinks were ordered. The menu had plenty of options for adults but the children's options were limited. We ordered and nearly an hour later...

What a disappointing meal!! We've eaten several times here and had lovely food, today however was just awful and we won't be returning. Had to wait almost an hour for food despite only a couple of other tables eating. Food was cold, dry, and even a hair was found in one dish, eughhhhh! Food was not fresh and completely dire.

I visited the Port Arms for a light lunch. It is very popular and busy on a summers day. The problem with eating solo is finding a place to sit, then when you do, you have to negotiate going inside and to order food, losing your table to others wanting to sit outside too. A group of 4 had taken...

Great food and lovely location then when youve eaten you can either sit inside or out with a cold drink. A stroll along the beach is just across the road. Great secure place for kids to play just outside the pub. Well worth a visit. The Sunday lunch is awesome too
