Owner description: We are Deal's Micropub. Started in December 2011 we are now firmly part of the Deal community. We specialise in real ales from microbreweries across the UK and have a constantly changing menu. Beers are kept in a temperature controlled room, served directly from the cask and brought to you. We also sell: real ciders; a selection of wines and soft drinks; a limited range of snacks including Kentish cheese; Kent crisps and pork pies from a local, award winning butcher. We do not sell lager or spirits nor do we have piped music or television. Mobile phones can be used to access the internet but a ringing phone results in a fine (money going to the Pilgrims Hospice). We offer a friendly and unique venue in Deal and hope to see you soon.

“Another excellent addition to Deal.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I can remember pubs like this from the days of my youth and it's great to see them coming back. Decent beer, somewhere to enter conversation with random people or just as easily sit in a corner reading. I strongly advise against attempting to use a mobile phone there or trying to swing a cat!

“Strange name, strange pub”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Looks like a lonely hearts club meeting room. Odd mix of customers sitting around a room with no bar - beer is served from the back of the pub. Good concept, serving independent, often local beers but not your average local.

“A bit of a mixed experience...”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We've visited every micropub in Kent over the past few months, and the Just Reproach was the last on our list. We enjoyed our visit but...the guvnor didn't come over and said hello, although we were obviously not regulars, and in such a small place a friendly welcome would have been in order. Of more concern was what was to come. We both had the pear cider (from the bottom of the cask, as it ran out) and I'm afraid to say that about an hour and a half later we both had to rush for the loo, and stay close by it for the rest of the day - our guts had a very bad reaction to it. We hadn't eaten any food, and we both had the same drink, so can only assume it was the cider. We had travelled to visit the JR, but probably wouldn't go back.

“Good value pub”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This new micro pub sticks to the basics - good beers from local micro-breweries; a few good wines from the local wine shop (Borough Windes); and some nice cheese if you want it. There's no bar, so the host Mark swans around the small place talking to people and looking after them. Mobile phones aren't allowed - there are a few handsets nailed to the wall to remind what'll happne to yours if you break the rules. Great place to go for a beer and chat with anyone who happens to be sitting close to you. It's that sort of place.
