1st night here, a trio of musicians sat jamming folky style with their banjo's & fiddle! Warm & friendly owner who's smile met his sincerity! Welcoming atmosphere and looking forward to next weeks stay in Brighton just so we can come here!!!

Under new ownership this cosy, charming bar is really worth a visit. The new landlords are friendly and welcoming and regularly have excellent live music playing. They have made it very welcoming and I hope you enjoy your visit!
