user reviews of the Prince Albert, Deal

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A cosy little pub with a couple of real ales on our visit, one from the Westerham brewery and one from the Northumberland brewery. Judging by the pump clips adorning the end wall, the beer range does vary.

Well worth a visit and we were impressed by the immaculately dressed barman.

Very pleasant corner pub, small areas for drinking and eating. I would say civilised rather than upmarket, though it is in the gorgeous Middle Street. Gadds pretty good.

Visited early Sunday evening when it was quiet. Good pint of ale (Gadds). Note restricted opening hours. It does food which I suspect is pretty good.

Cracking pub with loads of atmosphere and great beer.

Having read the reviews on this pub I was looking forward to visiting it from London at lunchtime. I was amazed to find that the place only opens for 5 hours in the evening. It doesn't even open at Saturday lunchtime for heavens sake, a really popular drinking time. Perhaps I'm being ungracious but it seems more like a club than a pub. Had to make do with an unwelcoming pub nearby.

An absolute gem of a pub with real character on top of which serving great real ale with good service and a friendly welcome - A slight walk from the Train Station but well worth it...Can't wait to go back!

Just along the road from the Ship, another pub with excellent beers plus what looks like great food. Not as homely as the Ship and not quite so friendly, but still well worth a visit.

The Albert is just what a pub should be. The exterior is inviting and you are not disappointed when you step inside. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and there are just enough comfortable seats and tables, all set within a fine old room with plenty of character. A separate room is reserved for dinners and Sunday lunches - the food is excellent, consisting of excellent ingredients simply and beautifully cooked.

But the great glory of this pub is the beer - well, that's what pubs are for, isn't it? There are always three good real ales on tap at the bar. Since the landlords buy just a few barrels at a time, you could find yourself sampling as many as 6 or 7 different beers over the course of one week. There's a bias towards local (Kentish) beers, which is as it should be, but also plenty of fine ales from further afield. To get an idea of the variety of beers available here over the course of the year, you only have to look at the hundred or so tap-labels hanging on the wall - other pubs can only dream of such variety!

Super location too - on the corner of a lovely square and Deal's most interesting street. Well worth the journey from wherever you are.

I didn't know this pub existed and it's only 100 yds or so from The Ship!

A very friendly local pub, with good friendly service. There were three ales on offer - Cottage Brewing "Dawlish Ale", and two beers from Eddie Gadd's brewery in Ramsgate, namely "Gadd's No7", and "Dr. Sunshine's Special Friendly Wheat Beer". I sampled the Dawlish, and it was presented in splendid condition.

I cannot comment on the food but I have heard from people that have eaten here that the food is very good.

A traditional pub with a traditional feel to it - well worth 6/10.

Great little pub. Had three 'less than common ales' on when I visited. Though none were to my tastes, the old clips suggested many past beers were.

Ate here too. The food was both good quality and good value [I had an excellent braised steak with walnut & Guinness, my partner an equally good seabass]

Interior-wise, though touched up a little there's still a decent traditional feel 8/10
