This was our second visit to this brilliant pub / b and b. As always.. wonderfully friendly service.. VERY clean rooms and an atmosphere that you couldn't bottle. Homely..happy and relaxed. You feel totally at home and like 'one of the regulars' .. quite unique.

This is a fairly easy place to find. Less than 10mins from brighton town centre. Really friendly welcoming from the ladies. A small quaint pub. The room was up a small staircase with separate access from the pub on the first floor. On entering the room it is small but everything was included. Fresh towels and complimentary wash products are... More

This is an expansion of an exceedingly brief review I did a month or so ago. (We were still traveling and internet access limited.) The Bow Street Runner is the sort of place you hope you will come across on holiday. Sue and every one of her staff with whom we had any contact (Warren, Simon, Lisa) were outstanding---genuinely friendly,... More

Rooms immaculate, compact but every detail well thought out. Free wifi, Central location very friendly owners/staff. Much better inside than out. Good value for Brighton area. Parking limited but we were lucky and using a permit from hotel, £6 , we were able to park outside

Here is a room above a pub, and is a great experience. The only problem if you have bags is that the pub is in a quiet street, and depending on what time you arrive initial parking is a problem. You get your key and shown to the room. We had a room on the first foor. It had all... More

Stayed here for 2 nights - the room was spotless and comfortable. Sue and John were very welcoming and happy to offer some local tips along with providing the required street parking permits which they added to the bill. Definitely recommend.

One night stay. Was a bit concerned it being located above the pub but I needn't have worried. Pleasantly presented room with tomorrow's d-i-y breakfast and a mini-fridge with fresh milk to hand. The bar downstairs was friendly and warm. Good internet connection and a good night's sleep. Until the next morning when the beer barrels were delivered before my... More

Small friendly pub with very clean well presented rooms. Continental breakfast in your room ready for when you wake up. The only down side was the fridge in the room was incredibly noisy as was the toilet flush! Close enough to Brighton to walk in but far enough away to be quiet. Top tip - parking on the street is...

It's a proper pub and good beer with all that that entails. Great hosts and the other customers are just as friendly. No food though, not even a bag of crisps and because there is a huge choice of restaurants locally, it doesn't matter. There are only 3 rooms available and the stairs could be a challenge if you have... More

Sue and Mike were delightful - room spotless, well priced and close to everything. Great bar - John was lovely too. Thoroughly recommend. Very helpful on where to go to eat, and felt we were welcomed as friends. So much better than a stuffy five star. Loads of character.
