Been there before. Food is consistently good quality as is the beer (although the selection may be bettered in other establishments). Friendly staff help to make a solo visit a bit easier. Will continue to pop in on my occasional visits to the area.

Lovely buzzing atmosphere, I've been there a few times for drinks but I really like their Sunday roast. Great for a chill on Sunday, don't forget to go there early as it's often very busy.

Mid summer, tables outside, an easy atmosphere, and a massive range of decent beer. A favourite 30 years ago I came here again this week, and little has changed. If you want good beer, this is the place to head for. Gales HSB, Fullers ESB,...More

The dishes are advertised on a chalk board above the bar. Sophisticated food for a pub. You order, pay and sit at a table where the food is brought to you. They always do a great fish dish and have excellent cured meats and cheeses...More

I often go to Brighton and this is my favourite pub. It is in the North Laine area, but not too crowded with tourists though. It is full of locals, always friendly. There is a large selection of beer, cask conditioned and others. The food...More
