Lone female traveler enjoyed staying at the Bow Street Runner, which is small but perfectly formed! Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Great location for cafés, restaurants and the beach. Is also just up the street from Burger Off!

Spent a few hours here on New Year's eve before going to a house party to see in the New Year and as always it had a fantastic atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and my Guinness was good - friends told me the Harvey's was excellent. This has to be one of the friendliest pubs in town - everyone... More

Brighton is a very expensive place to stay. Parking overnight can be pricey. The roads can be an absolute nightmare. So here is a place where you can access easily, park overnight for around £ 6 (there is 11 hr on street parking a coupe of streets away which last until well into the next day) and is good value....

Came from Canada to spend time with family and some old friends, who I have known for over 50 years. Decided to stay 4 nights at the Bow Street Runner. There are 3 rooms above the pub. The staff were so very friendly, the room was great, and they included a little continental breakfast every morning in my room. Would... More

3rd time I've stayed at the Bow Street Runner. Nice clean rooms and breakfast ( croissants, cereal, juice and tea/coffee) in room so you can have it when you like. Good location and friendly (not noisy) pub for one before turning in. Thanks Sue.

Fantastic local, friendly locals and top class bar staff, i never waited longer than 2 minutes getting served, on a very busy friday night. The pub also has 3 b&b rooms which are rated 9.5. There is no food, juke box or gaming machines, just a proper local pub. One of the best i've been to.

Greeted on arrival and shown to the very clean room which has a mini fridge and croissants for the morning. The accommodation is not fancy but all is presented to a good standard. The pub itself is proper, decent pub without gimmick. I had an excellent local beer there before exploring town. 0 Complaints whatsoever.

The first floor room has it's own private entrance but we were tempted in to the bar each time we returned back! Big thanks to Abby, Dave, Martin and Simon (locals) for taking us to a... More
