Quite honestly this is an absolute gem of a boozer. My wife and I moved back to the area in 2014 and in this smashing place we found an instant home. The antithesis of chain pub unpleasantness. It's a bit titchy and so you'll end up sitting next to all sorts. Being Deal this could be absolutely anyone (A couple of years ago we ended up sitting near the pythonesque Terry Jones ) *Funny and quirky* doesn't even begin to describe it. Mark and Bron have produced a monster. Look out for *Dave Shorts* *Check your Change Dave* *French Dave* and others who are not called Dave. Sit with Michael at your peril. Roast potatoes on Sundays, regular Cheese afternoons, a cracking (constantly changing) array of local beer cider and wines. If you buy one of the pork pies don't forget to ask for the pickles (supplied by regulars and all the loot goes to local charities). Quite simply this is one of the nicest places that you could ever visit. Deal has received a rather well deserved upturn in visitors of late. Start here.
