180 Beach Street
195 Beach Street
In 1903 the pub was owned by the East Kent Brewery, Sandwich.
It certainly no longer looks inviting as a public house and to date I do not know when it ceased to trade. Obviously after 1922.
The earliest date I have is 1840 but the Deal History Society date it even further back to 1828.
Misleading information. When I first went to photograph the house I found a giveaway sign on the glass over the front door identified this building as the "Yarmouth Packet".
I assumed that due to renumbering of the road, the "Yarmouth Packet" was now listed at number 189 and not 180 as I was given to believe. However, the glass sign must be incorrect, and I have now amended my mistake, but left this reference and photograph in, in case someone else finds this building and make the same assumption. To date there is no evidence that this premises was connected to the public house of that name.

Apparently the house closed on 31 December 1919, even though the Post Office directory shows it still open in 1922. There is also reference to the contents of the house being sold by auction on 25 October 1921.
