About The Pavilion on the Drill Field, Deal, Kent

Nestled on these grounds since 1795, this historic site was once a bustling hub for Cavalry and Infantry units. By 1869, the Royal Marines made it their own. Amidst its rich history, the site features the serene church of St. Michaels’ and All Angels, standing tall and silent, serving as a testament to the tranquillity visitors feel upon setting foot here.
Today, the focal point of the site is the former Royal Marines cricket pavilion. While it has evolved with time, it has not shed its aura, an ambiance that harkens back to a simpler era where sporting spirit took centre stage, and the hustle of modern life was but a distant future.

The Pavilion boasts a spacious parking lot fit for both cars and larger vehicles. Ensuring accessibility, it offers ground-floor facilities for our differently-abled guests and a fully-stocked, licensed bar to cater to your relaxation needs.

No matter the occasion – be it a cosy office gathering, a grand wedding reception, or a sombre funeral – we tailor our services to meet your event’s needs, ensuring it is memorable and seamless.
