Proper Pub

No juke boxes, no TV. Good selection of beers, some of which must be the cheapest in Deal. Lively atmosphere and friendly staff. A proper pub and my favourite in Deal.

What a Gem of a place this is. We stumbled across it and we're glad we did. The service was excellent a great selection of beers on offer. What a wonderful atmosphere this place has .Steeped in history ,memorabilia on the walls to keep the mind occupied. Two bars and a lounge. It almost felt like we were stepping back... More

The Ship Inn is a great pub hidden down Middle Street in Deal. Apart from Wetherspoons they are probably the cheapest pub in Deal, giving the Kent micro pubs a run for their money. I bought a pint of Dark Star Hop Head, served in top condition and it was only £2.60. I am sure it was about £3 the... More

A cute little pub but incredibly rude bar staff who made my party feel very uncomfortable. So much so, we left almost as soon as we had arrived.

After reading the multiple reviews I'm sad to write about our terrible experience...which was unwelcoming to say the least. The lady at the bar made my friends and I feel very unwelcome. It was so bad that we left without getting a drink after asking multiple questions at the bar.
