I think Deal suffers from:
(a) being "occupied territory", and the chippy mentality of insurgent colonials
(b) the problem of being overshadowed by a near neighbour of such enormous strategic, historic and iconic importance. Not to mention commercial, as 17% of UK trade goes through the port.
Deal is basically a glorified ex-mining and fishing village floating in a bubble of misbegotten snobbery and prejudice, with a few decent indepencdent shops and a load of poncey DFL-run and oriented ones that will be gone as soon as the London herd rush off the Next Big Thing.
Anyway, do excuse me - I am off to visit a chip shop in Lowestoft because The Times listed it as the fourth best in Britain.
