Friday afternoon at a time when this pub would normally have been closed but, thankfully, Bronwyn had decided to stay open all afternoon, a good mixed crowd were making it worthwhile for her.

A must do while in Deal - very busy for early evening, friendly welcome from the owner's daughter without prompting offered us 'beerboard' tasters of today's four. We perched outside on the window sill and soaked up the evening sun.
Kent - Session Pale3.70ExceptionalTicked all my boxes for a perfect pint..
Oakham - Bishops Farewell4.60ExcellentSmooth rich yet malty hoppy and refreshing. An easy second choice.
Goacher's - Silver Star4.20ExcellentA taster - not at all sickly sweet unlike its big brother Gold Star, more dry light refreshing pale ale.
Canterbury Ales (sometimes badged as Canterbrew) - The Reeve's Ale4.10GoodJust a taster was enough - ok but coppery and nutty

Early afternoon, I was surprised to find a friend from Essex in here who had decided to visit Deal on a whim. I was so surprised that I forgot to switch my 'phone off and had to forfeit £1 when it beeped to indicate that Mr. Pirrip had sent me an email.
