No doubt about it, this is the only pub in Deal that has brought in well known bands and singers. The manager and staff have turned this pub around to be the best music venue in the area and continue to surprise everyone with new events. Credit where it is due it all comes down to the manager Richard and... More

As a result of a last minute change of plans, we managed to secure the last available room. A very clean, well laid out room with an en-suite. We had been pre-warned that there would be a live band playing and that last orders were taken at 02.00, but it was still a surprise and a nice touch to find... More

I was here to see the bands and credit to the venue they are making an effort and getting good acts to the place. I don't think Deal is ready for them yet though. Both support bands were largely ignored despite headlining similar size and bigger venues on their own. The venue was busy, the sound was good, the lighting... More

The management at The Hole In The Roof is clearly trying to bring more live bands to Deal, bands if a certain calibre that appeal to existing customers & that also bring potential new customers & I salute them for that. I went to THITR with my wife last Saturday night to see Dr. Feelgood. The band didn't disappoint &... More

This was our first visit to this venue. The bar service was good and the venue itself was great. However they must have seriously over sold the tickets for this gig as it became quite uncomfortable at one point and I did wonder if anything went wrong whether we would get out ok. There was way too many people there.... More

A good night, clean room, warm shower. Friendly bar staff. Becky on the bar was more than accommodating, friendly, pretty and engaging. Well worth a visit!

Underage drinking, poor service, dirty. Broken glass outside speaks for itself It has to be the worse 'pub' in Deal. Doesn't seem as though the Police are that bothered considering the number of underage age youths drinking heavily
