What a find, great value, quiet, toasty warm and such a good night's sleep in a great bed. If you don't mind a stroll to Brighton it's great, buses leave from really close by too. Owner fantastic, all staff super helpful. Steep stairs to access rooms, fine for us but bear it in mind for access.

We booked here for an overnight stay whilst seeing a gig at the Brighton Centre and to do a bit of Christmas shopping. The pub is quaint and small, traditional and very friendly. The staff were helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Our room was on the first floor and very compact but had everything we needed for an... More

I booked this because my boyfriend is a retired police officer and the name made it appropriate. I think it is where a police station used to be many years ago. The owner had worked there for years before purchasing it from the previous owner and has made many improvements. The place is quirky and friendly. The decor of the... More

My boyfriend and I came to Brighton for his 21st birthday and had to book two rooms as I booked late and couldn't find anywhere to stay. I was a little skeptical as it is a pub but you wouldn't have even noticed if you had just gone straight up to the room. As soon as we entered he pub... More

Our room was also superb... More

We stayed for two nights and loved the friendliness of the staff. The room was very nice and the continental breakfast in the room was a great way to start the day. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend it :)

We just stayed one night, but wished we had booked for longer. The room (we had #2) was very small, but it has everything you'll need and it's spotless clean. The three rooms have a separate entrance, so you don't have to go through the bar if you don't want to. However, I recommend you do! Sue the owner and... More

We stayed at Bow Street Runner for a weekend with friends whilst celebrating a special birthday. On arrival we were made to feel really welcome by the owners and regulars in the bar. Rooms were lovely, spotlessly clean and had everything you needed including complimentary toiletries. The beds are so comfortable I didn't want to get up! I cannot recommend... More

This was the best place we stayed during our vacation. Wonderful small b and b. We had a great time chatting with the Owner, Warren the bartender and all the locals that stopped in. Room was clean and comfortable.
