Earliest mention of this house is 1830 when it was a beer house. The sign on the plaque states "Tally Ho" 1794. However, the house is probably a lot older than this as in 2007, while undertaking repairs to the roof, local artisan Charles Finn discovered the name Valentine West 1747 cut into the lead sheeting and also the outline of a footprint and initials RW written and dated 1779. The West family are seen to be residents at 144 Middle Street till at least 1812.

Further information have dated the building to circa 1712.

The Deale Licensing Register of 10 January 1884 states that Michael Kelly applied to change the name of his house from the "Tally Ho" to the "Frederick William." This was granted. However, it didn't stay with that name for long for the same body reported on 3 March 1884, the very same year just three months later, that the licence was transferred to A Simmons who was permitted to change the name back.

The Mercury reported on December 18, 1909, that a fire broke out in a private room at the "Tally Ho!" public house, Middle Street, Deal.

The alarm was given at the police station and thanks to the newly installed electric call system the fire brigade promptly proceeded to the house and in about two hours were able to put out the fire.
