More of a restaurant than pub to be honest - food very good. However, there are often far too many children running around to provide what I call 'a proper pub'. Having said this its a great lunch time venue when the food prices are very reasonable. Maybe avoid early evening if, like me, you prefer a more adult environment.

Came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. A great menu selection, excellently presented. This NOT your standard pub grub. A wide variety of wines at a reasonable price. A good atmosphere and great value for money. Will put this on our list of eating places to revisit. Thanks for contributing to our wonderful evening.

If you love a good old fashioned roast then this is the pub for you!! The portion size is amazing, the flavours and the taste is unreal and thankfully as I'm a veggie they do the best Nut Roast I think I have ever tried so there's something for everyone and then you get to the selection of wines......it won't...

Pleasant pub but very loud. Lucky we had a separate room which was comfortable and spacious. Prices normal and food menu good. Difficult for a wheelchair.

Had dinner on Saturday with friends before heading out. Didn't want loads so ordered starters with some chips. My short rib of beef was spot on, and really substantial. Friends had seafood linguine which was also very good. Nice spot. Wish it was my local...

Sunday lunch was very busy but we found a good table still. Ordered roasts all around which did take a fair while to come out maybe an hour but when they finally came we were not disappointed . The roasties were lovely and crispy and fluffy inside, the Yorkshire puddings were fresh and crispy. Vegetables fresh and well cooked and... More

We lunched here on the hottest day of the year. This pub/restaurant had friendly and efficient staff, a nice atmostsphere about it and an enticing menu. We tried the pate, minute steak and the sticky toffee pudding from their set lunch menu. Each course was delicious and not stingy in size. I would highly recommend the Preston Park Taven for...

Friendly and responsive service with a chilled atmosphere, the Preston Park Tavern is a great stop off for some fish and chips with a pub atmosphere. Succulent cod, covered in a fine tasty batter with chip shop style chips ... Yum!

We were visiting Brighton for our son's graduation and had rented a house in Fiveways. We fell upon the Tavern on Sunday and are so glad we did. We can honestly say that we had the best Sunday Roast ever. Wonderful fresh ingredients, melt in the mouth roast beef and huge quantities. The sausages in the pigs in blankets were... More

Description
Locals and foodies mix in this delightfully bright and cheerful family-friendly food pub – a hidden gem, which has remained busy and buzzy since it opened six years ago. Something of a local institution, this fabulous pub serves good honest food, prepared with skill and passion. Beautifully prepared roast meals are served on Sundays from 12 to 6pm. With superb Sussex reared meats, a vegetarian and fish option as well as small portions for children, it’s hard to find a reason not to visit.
