Joe's Bar and Restaurant

Above picture taken from Google Maps 2011 shows the former "Joe's Bar and Restaurant."

 

Tony Well, CAMRA's Pub Officer emailed me recently saying the following:- "I added “Joe's Bar and Restaurant”, Deal, to my Pubs Database when I walked past it back in May 2012. I wandered downstairs and it definitely had a bar that you could sit at without having to order a meal – unfortunately they were shut at the time. This has been sold and will be renamed “D's Steakhouse & Dive bar.

Well, further research gave me the following information. That the bar was in the basement of 114 High Street and was last purchased on 10th March 2006 for 30,000.

Also found at the same address is the "Italian Restaurant Casanova Mio," "Il Pescatore" also an Italian Restaurant, "A B Tong" which sounds like a Chinese Restaurant to me, "Charleigh's Mediterranean Cuisine," and also at the same address "Bangkok House Thai Restaurant." No dates were mentioned for these establishments, hopefully someone will able to fill in the blanks.

The Kelly's directory of 1899 lists this premises as "Nethersole and Son Limited, wine & spirit merchants & importers & ale & porter merchants."

Latest news, September 2015, after changing name to "D's Steakhouse and Dive Bar" some time between 2012 and 2015, the premises no longer has their license and has been converted into a hot dog restaurant. Sounds to me that it was a bit of a "Dive" always changing names to give new respectability and probably just as well that it's now closed.
