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.

Second visit to this gem of a place. No frills and no mobile phones and I nearly forgot, no larger😀 Highly recommend the just reproach. The rhubarb cider was delicious. Brewed in faversham. The flavours were awesome. Quite a small intimate place so at certain times, it's standing room only but that adds to the charm of this place. Very... More

We searched this one out and were successful. Spacious establishment with an ample amount of seating. There was a fantastic atmosphere and the service was excellent. Decent choices of ale and cider.The decor was great. Will definitely return when next in Deal.

I have occasionally been drinking in the Just Reproach since not long after it first opened. It is a family run micro pub that has always been popular. Sadly Debbie, Mark's Wife and Bronwen's Mother died in April. The downside of the pubs popularity is that as it is small you can often arrive, especially at weekend evenings, and there... More

"The Just Reproach" was a delight. The welcome handshake of a friendship renewed. The captivating hum of human companionship filled the air, The service and beers were exceptional everything a true "Pub" should be. A must visit if you are in Deal.

Thanks to the staff, this micro pub only a block from the beach is friendly and inviting. The kegged beers and local wines are constantly changing and represent the best to be found!

Only a brief visit sadly, but struck by the friendliness of both staff and fellow drinkers. Tried a couple of delicious local brews, and my girlfriend had a strawberry cider (real strawberries in real cider) which was sampled twice it was so good! A really great environment for the promotion of less well know beers and beer styles. Highly recommended.

I always pop into here before I go to Deal Dining Club. I just love this micropub. Superbly friendly staff and such a relaxed and friendly environment. Lovely selection of ales and the usual. Cannot fault this place on anything.

If you ever wondered what a tantric pub might be like, then this must come damn close to one. No ersatz music, no winking fruit machines trying to give you the come on and mobile phones are nailed to the wall. Just sit and listen the chat of others or recline to the sound your own inner monologue. OK, a... More

Leslie and I popped into the Just Reproach because I had read they had craft beer. We finally found it after passing it a couple of times and had to pause when walking in. It seemed like a little hole in the wall. After deciding to stay, sitting, sampling and having good brew, we looked closely at the decor and... More
