Attraction details
Owner description: We are Deal's Micropub. Started in December 2011 we are now firmly part of the Deal community. We specialise in real ales from microbreweries across the UK and have a constantly changing menu. Beers are kept in a temperature controlled room, served directly from the cask and brought to you. We also sell: real ciders; a selection of wines and soft drinks; a limited range of snacks including Kentish cheese; Kent crisps and pork pies from a local, award winning butcher. We do not sell lager or spirits nor do we have piped music or television. Mobile phones can be used to access the internet but a ringing phone results in a fine (money going to the Pilgrims Hospice). We offer a friendly and unique venue in Deal and hope to see you soon.

“My Kind Of Pub”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

The Just Reproach is Deal's micro pub found just off the High Street. A great location for locals and visitors alike to pass away a few hours sampling the well kept quality ales. No mobile phones, darts, juke boxes or gaming machines mean that conversation is a must. Friendly staff and excellent guest beers make this a unique experience in Deal. Check out the barrel room and see how they look after the ale. We will definitely go back there soon.

“Awww, what a sweet place”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

So different. Would have walked past this but a local restauranteur recommended it. Lovely genuine atmosphere. No pretentiousness about it. Really good beer and cider. See you next time we are in Deal.

We stumbled upon this micro pub during a two night break in Deal and visited The Just Reproach both nights! On offer were some of the most interesting and flavoursome real ales and ciders we have experienced, served to you from a back room. Lovely atmosphere in a small, cosy room which encourages a community feel by its layout. Mobile phones are discouraged which was a refreshing change. Samples of ale and ciders were offered to aid your decision. Wish we had one local to us in Essex. If you like proper beer served in a proper atmosphere The Just Reproach is a must!!

“Great Selection Of Real Ale and good company”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The owner Mark will give you a good welcome and chat about the great ales and cider on offer here .This Micropub has enough room for about 20 people at a push ,no mobile phones aloud ,no television just a good old fashioned chat so don't be shy and join in with the others here interested in real ale, there are strict opening times and Mark still rings the bell and closes when some other pubs stay open .Worth a visit if you are in Deal. Some pies on offer but mostly caters for good beer and cider.
