Description: Our pub has a simple approach - to be the sort of pub we would love to go to ourselves. No loud music, no attitude, where everyone is welcome. Whether you live near by, work near by or have travelled from far afield you will be guaranteed a hearty 'hello' and welcomed to spend a few moments or the whole evening. Our only requirement of our guests is that they are nice and friendly. (Our licence requires one other thing, that you must be over 18 years of age). Why not enter a team into our weekly quiz every Thursday at 9 pm when large cash prizes are on offer.

“Nice pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

This is a good, well run pub. It serves a good selection of real ales (which the barman was happy to let me sample before opting to buy) as well as the usual lagers and beers available at most pubs. The staff were very friendly and efficient and it was generally clean.

I had a burger which was OK for the price paid. However, one personal gripe of mine is the current trend for serving food on anything but plates. I know that the TV chef's like to do it to present on the telly, but this is a pub!!! The burger came on a chopping board (it's called a chopping board for a reason!) with a wooden sewer through it. The chips came in a little tin bucket (buckets are for carrying water) so I deposited them on the (cold) chopping board so that I could access them with my knife and fork and also sprinkle salt evenly over them. The bucket was discarded - what a waste of time. But the food was nice and well prepared and nobody in my party had any complaints. (they all think I'm mad for objecting to food being served on chopping boards).

In general though this is a very warm and welcoming pub, which is also dog friendly, so feel free to bring your pooch.

“A fabulous Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

I was in brighton on business looking for somewhere to eat. Found the Camelford Arms and decided to give it a try. The Landlord and the team should be proud of themselves. Good service, great food and excellent beer. It has the kind of ambience which invites you to stay and get another beer.

“Trendy Pub serving great pub food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place has a good atmosphere most days/nights of the week.
The food choice is good and the portions are huge, so make sure you are hungry
This bar does attract a particular clientele, but everyone is welcomed
Thursday night for the pub quiz at 9pm is always good for a laugh and Sundays are a firm favourite too,
