“Great pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

A regular haunt when we are in Brighton. We always have a delicious meal at a very reasonable price. Lovely quirky pub with a good atmosphere. The loos could do with a coat of paint.

“Great old world boozer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Great little pub off the beaten track; worth a visit to get a taste of a classic English pub. Has a couple of atriums so great when sunny

“Top class pub.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I came here on a Monday night of a business trip and wandered in luckily. It was packed, even though it was a Monday. There was a mix of people, some for the pub quiz, some watching Monday night football and some groups of people just out for a drink or some food. I had a couple of pints, good recommendation from the barmaid and I had a burger. What a fantastic burger! So big I couldn't eat the chips ( so I didn't really break the diet ;-) ). Highly recommended, if it is this good on a Monday then the worst that could happen is it gets too busy.

Unfortunately didn't eat here, but menu looked interesting. Beer was good & roof terrace very interesting. Unusual clientele.

“Great Pub - with roof terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great large pub with roof terrace. Really well known with locals and fills up at the weekend, but if you can grab a table upstairs you are in luck. To get to the roof terrace area is a bit complicated through the pub to the end and up the stairs.
