Another traditional looking pub, loved it. Staff and customers alike are so welcoming especially the locals. We had already eaten before we got here which was a shame as heard the wood fired pizzas are amazing, just a good excuse to go back.

In house Pizza cooked over wood-fine base and interesting toppings. Available from Thursdays. Book in advance. They also offer 'a special' most days. We had a lovely evening, pizza with a decent glass of Merlot. Very friendly locals, and nice dogs!!! Good value.

Nice little pub serving the usual selection of drinks. Food wise the pizzas are excellent! The pizza bases are made in house and are lovely and thin which IMO makes for a much nicer pizza. They are cooked in a wood fired pizza oven, which also helps with the authenticity. Recommended!

The best Pizza by far. If you love Pizza Express wait until you try these! All ingredients are fresh, the base and toppings. 'Pizza Specials', the chef comes up with some unusual toppings but never fails to please. A really good atmosphere, very good Landlord and staff. Definitely worth a visit.

Felt very welcome in a warm and inviting pub. We didn't eat here but the pizza's looked really tasty and smelt nice too. Selection of 4 ales on draft which kept me happy. Would definitely recommend you drop in.

The Hoy cooks Pizzas on Thursday, Friday and Saturday only and they are devine! They have an outside Pizza oven which cooks crisp based Pizza with the usual toppings or some more inventive like the Goats Cheese with Beetroot and Fig. I have never been a Pizza lover but these are so different and in a buzzy, friendly pub setting.

We have been to the Deal Hoy several times during our trips to Deal and love the friendly atmosphere. The outside pizza oven (and chef of course!) produces the best pizza ever! Light base and an interesting mix of toppings. Absolutely delicious! so much so...we even went back on the Sunday night for more but sadly they don't serve food.... More
