Mid to late evening and final yet disappointing venue owing to the poor choice of beers on offer. I opted for the 4% tangy rhubarb cider.

Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedIt would have been rude of me to deprive the denizens of Deal this nectar.

Late afternoon, in a very sunny and quiet day in Deal.Usual fayre here.

Two of us arranged to meet up for lunch in here before going to visit a friend who is now in residential care. This was my first visit here and I found the place to be very busy and welcoming, but I thought that a poorly supervised toddler crawling about between tables could have created a potential trip hazard.
White Horse - Wayland Smithy4.40AcceptableO.K. but would not have rushed back for another one.
Belhaven - Robert Burns Scottish Ale4.20Not Tried

3pm visit. Came to sunny Deal, for a classic bike event on the green. Very quiet in here.
Temperance Union - Ott Softy1.00Poor

Popped in whilst waiting for the train. Disappointed in the range of beers but I guess it's only a Wednesday.
Wadworth - Yeastie Boys Golden Perch4.40AcceptableSlightly herbal with some tropical fruit. Think it was towards the end of the barrel.
