Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very friendly helpful staff. Comfortable place to eat/drink. Staff had knowledge of the craft beers and gave varying options of measurements. Chatty and gave us information about where to visit too as we were new to the area. Very clean. Didn’t get a chance to...sample the food but saw it come out to other people. It looked good/smelled lovely. Really lovely place and we will return for sure !More

The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is...a gross understatement. [aka the pizza was banging]More

I visited this place yesterday with my family (who are mid 20's along with my grandchildren), we were served and looked out for by a well mannered and approachable (named Dalton I believe), as well as a friendly and rather busy cook (sorryi do not...recall her name). Throughout our visit we enjoyed the easy going and friendly environment as well as the marvellous food and service.... In short, thankyou....More

Pizza Excellent Beer Excellent Atmosphere Excellent Music Excellent Staff Excellent What's not to love about this little gem of a place. We had a table of 8 on Good Friday. The place was buzzing. The staff were so welcoming we relaxed straight away. The choice...and quality of the beers were amazing and when our food arrived we were not disappointed. The pizzas available were different in terms toppings that we have had before and worked really well. This place keeps it simple but does it with professionalism while keeping it fun and friendly. At the end of the night we were presented with a bill that was more than reasonable. Would highly recommend to anyone.More

The Taphouse is one of our favourite places in Deal. It always has a couple of cask beers available plus an enviable range of key keg craft ales, but the piece de resistance are the pizzas. They are thin and crispy, like the very best...Italian pizzas (if you've had them in Italy you'll know what I mean) and utterly delicious. The music is an eclectic selection from every period over the last 50/60 years, differing from visit to visit, and a live DJ at weekend evenings. But most important is the welcome you always get from "mine hosts"; always a pleasurable experience.More

The selection of drinks are awesome. Would recommend mango cider! The pizzas are THE BEST I’ve had EVER! Thin, crispy and delicious unusual toppings. I won’t be able to eat regular pizza again! Fantastic music too. So glad we found this gem and it is...our new go-to destination in Deal.More

This place is an absolute gem. The staff are brilliant, helpful, friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. Until my visit there, I was never a thin and crispy pizza fan, but the Taphouse changed my mind, the thinnest, crispiest pizza ever. A very large...selection of ales, and alcohol free on tap. In a nutshell, an amazing place, g fantastic pizza’s, huge choice of ales, and absolutely brilliant staff. Not a problem as far as I am concerned, but it is card payment only.More

This place always amazes me with how great it is. All of the team here are so friendly and Joe behind the bar is the oracle of Beer and Ale… popped in today for a lunchtime stout and my little boy wanted a pizza, which...was also out of this world. The attention to detail and personal touch from John in the kitchen is why I love this place so much. I can’t recommend it enough to anyone living in or visiting Deal.More

If you like your beer , give the taphouse a try. Always a great selection for every taste. Exceptionally clean , not always the case in Deal. I always like the music thats played , which adds to the laid back of the taphouse. Particularly...like the 'suntrap' patio area in the summer months. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. And yes the pizzas are good too.More

Popped in on Saturday lunchtime for a drink with my wife, 4 year old son and 2 little dogs. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and we were made to feel so welcome.

We love coming here, the bar staff always are so welcoming and really look after their customers. The atmosphere is laid back and has a nice buzz to it early evening, the pizza is always amazing and love the different options plus the regular ones,...and to have such a huge choice of beers, great wines and gins is fabulous. You can tell all the staff and owner cares, and it makes it a place to keep coming back to. We ways book a table as it does get busy for pizza at wkends.More
