Stayed across the road in the Queens Hotel but had seen good reviews for this Pub previously. Great chilled atmosphere, loads of groups and couples sat drinking and chatting and laughing had a good feel about it. Would definitely go again

Friendly bar with chatty staff and customers. Passed a lovely early evening sitting in the sun and later dancing. Someone told me it was going to be closing down. I hope it isn't true because I would definitely go back next time I'm in Brighton.

Hello. Yes we do. Through our back door. But unfortunately being such an old building our toilets are down stairs (aprox 15 steps).
