A great seaside pub. Good beer and good pub food. Also a great stop for walkers along the coast. Book a table if you want to eat.

Very friendly staff, nice and cozy location just few meters from the seaside. Food was lovely, rustic feel inside and I highly recommend this gastro pub to anyone visiting Deal of Kent England.

Stopped for lunch and a drink. Food was quite greasy but not bad. Lovely location on the beach though.

This is the best pub in Kingsdown and is regularly booked up with food slow due to high demand. Great ales, nice vibe. London Prices!

Have been a couple of times and had the fish, always very nicely prepared, great portion sizes. The setting on the beach is fantastic. Imagine nice to sit outside with a drink, for this reason can get busy on nices evenings. Will return.

We have eaten there a number of times and never been disappointed, whether its bar food or from the menu and specials of the day. Booking is advisable, unless you want to sit outside on the beach

A great place to stop off after a walk along the beach. Very cosy inside and in the summer a lovely place to sit outside for a drink or a snack.
