Welcome to the Deal Hoy...

Welcome to the Deal Hoy, a traditional local pub in the northern quarter of Deal's historic conservation area. 

Named after a small Kentish sailing vessel, the pub makes waves with its authentic wood-fired pizza, a host of delicious drinks and a lively line-up of entertainment.

It’s a place packed with characterwith a smart interior wearing its nautical history with pride, and a traditional log burner providing a warm welcome in winter.

In summer, it’s all hands on deck, thanks to a large beer garden and family-friendly decking area, perfect for soaking up the sun.

You’ll find us on Duke Street in Deal town centre.

The boat behind the name...

A ‘hoy’ was a small boat that plied its trade taking people and supplies over short distances - often to and from larger vessels moored offshore. A water taxi, effectively.

Diarist Samuel Pepys records in 1775 that a hoy was a small sloop-rigged sailing ship, but other versions are known to have existed. 

Hiring one was easy enough - you just called out "a hoy there!”
