The Siege of Deeg Fort (11–24 December 1804) was a siege of the main fortress at Deeg, now in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan, India, then within the Maratha Empire. Forces of the British East India Company, led by Generals Fraser and Lake, successfully captured the fort from its Marathan defenders.

The siege took place about one month after the Battle of Deeg.
