My husband and I went to visit this pub by recommendation, and we were not dissapointed. The staff was really friendly; they helped us choose our beers giving us a try first. We shared a plate of fish and chips to try, and it was really good, loved the pea puree and the chips! Overall we spent like £20 for... More

I love this pub. It's cute. It's classic and it's how pubs should be. What I love the most Is that it's like a mini secret. Many don't know where it is and therefore it tends to serve locals only. I will keep drinking here for as long as the doors are open. It's and wicked pub with tons and... More

Probably wouldn't have found this gem of a pub (just 10 mins stroll from Brighton Station) had it not been for the recommendation of a young couple who live in Hove. Was meeting a friend down from London for the day (as I was visiting Brighton overnight). This was the first pub we visited and on arrival I realised it... More

Just popped in whilst wandering around The Laines - never been in before, so decided to try. Had a very enjoyable pint of local cider - good choice of ales too. Ordered venison and mushroom pie with savoy cabbage and chips - just lovely! Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and will definitely be returning.

When it comes to food and atmosphere, it's hard to compete in Brighton, there's so much choice for places to eat, but the Basketmakers Arms beats all other pubs and restaurants in the vicinity hands down! The staff are rather unusual because they make you feel at home immediately with their warm smiles and friendly conversation. Customer service is about... More

This small, friendly cheek by jowel pub, decorated with wall-mounted tobacco tins, serves a variety of fish-based dishes. We tried the whitebait and the salmon, both fresh, perfectly cooked and tasty. Chips are home made. The real ale is well kept and there's a good choice of it. The drawback is that the benches and stools are not that comfortable,... More

Plenty of atmosphere and good beer. A 'proper' pub with eight real ales on tap when I visited including Butcombe but I love the Fullers ESB which is not always easy to find. The bar staff were friendly and efficient. There was plenty to look at around the pub but people at the tables made it difficult to look at... More

We had Portobello burgers which were way too small for the price - we were asked if we wanted cheese - we agreed and were then charged £1 extra which was not mentioned. Burgers arrived (tasteless cheese) super small - burgers + 1 home cooked chips & two beers = £27 - come on be fair. Bit of a rip... More

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!!
