Loverly old school bar with great food

This is an excellent bar, a little off the main tourist trail but worth the detour! They do a good range of authentic beer and ale. The food here is absolutely fabulous and you won't go hungry ! Highly recommended !

Best mackerel lunch ever, cosy surroundings and friendly staff. Another one of the small Brighton pubs that has a real passion for good food.

Totally unpretentious Pub - with first class beers on draught, well priced wine list & really remarkable food. Not promoted as a Gastro pub (for which, thanks) but consistently great food for lunch & dinner - real skill in the kitchen and hearyy portions.

Away from the frenetic masses. It was a weds afternoon. Busier during more social times. Fullers esb unfaltable ghost ship also. Sea food platter spot on. Recommended.

Good ales, good food, friendly staff and a great location. This was my local for many years and it doesn't get any better. Literally the only criticism you could have is that sometimes it's impossible to get a seat because everyone loves this pub!

Have known this pub for 30 years and it's always been one of the best, we visited two weeks ago and the food was great, Fullers beer always as it should be and packed with interesting North Lane types. Simply one of the best choices in Brighton and Hove.

Fine range of British ales, food is home cooked, delicious and ridiculously well priced. I have used this pub for nigh on forty years and it always brings a smile to my face whenever I visit as the atmosphere is so laid back and friendly. A must for first time visitors to Brighton
