Loved the range of real beers which includes for a change a craft lager. Nice menu in particular the late night menu with its delicious stone baked pizzas are a godsend. Staff are friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again when back in Brighton.

Had the cracked crab and gardeners platter and both were well presented and the ingredients were clearly well sourced. Quality and quantity were definitely both there along with good service. Most satisfying dinning experience this year for sure and I like my food!!
