This is a must visit pub with 8 real ales. Fresh locally sourced food. Friendly knowlegeble staff and a wonderful atmosphere away from the banging music and sports tv. Award winning year after year and I'm not surprised give it a go you won't be disappointed!!

Having lived in Italy for many years, and as a result being deprived of decent beer for 51 weeks at a time, the Basketmakers is an essential part of my expat existence on returning to Brighton. It's also the one constant in a city of change: no stupid name change, no banks of flashing fruit machines or TVs, no thumping... More

Visited the Basketmakers today this is now my third visit after discovering this little goldmine about six months ago. Great selection of beers, I had the roast beef sandwich with wholemeal. The beef was served pinkish which I like some may not. The sandwich was also served on a wooden board again that appeals to me but I realise others... More

Looking for lunch and came here as do food all day. I like the pub for a drink anyway but had not eaten here before. Well, I had Sea Bass fillet with ginger strips, crushed potatoes and a tossed salad which contained sun dried tomatoes. Absolutely superb. Only £9.95 as well.

Now here's the thing...... Trip Advisor reviews are a very personal thing. Sometimes we wake up feeling all's well with the world and then again, sometimes we get up and you just know that anything that's going to Pee you off will. Now Anne F, sounds to me like your Sunday was not up there on your all time high... More

Best pub in Brighton... I had the roast today and it was delicious, everything was cooked well and the roast potatoes were done so well,proper Yorkshire puddings (no packet crap) service was great. An all round top pub for food and beer.

I've been visiting the Basketmakers for years and have always enjoyed everything about it, it's a fantastically homely welcoming environment. However today my partner and I ordered two pork roasts and oh dear they were poor, the accompaniments were fine but the pork no, extremely over cooked on the outside and barely in the middle. We informed the nice fella... More

The Basketmakers has a good selection of Real Ales something which first attracted us here. Excellent bar staff who always seem to be happy and greet, and ackowledge you, as you wait to be served (other bars please take note). We visited at lunchtime which made it a bit busy but our food came in good time - tasty classic... More
