After the previous owners let this place go downhill, nice to see new management trying hard to turn this place around. Very friendly, got good plans and already serving great Thai tapas dishes. Have tried a few dishes and not been disappointed yet.

“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

I live close to The Caxton and have visited several times recently. The pub has changed hands and has undergone several improvements. The decor is much better but the most significant change is the addition of the delicious Thai food. I have eaten here a few times now and sampled a number of different dishes. They have all been superb.
The beer is excellent and the staff are very friendly.
10/10. Or maybe 11/10.

“Change of management- immense improvement!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We heard on the grapevine that this pub had recently changed hands, and was doing Thai food, so thought we would go and check it out. Seriously impressed with the standard of food that they are doing- lots of choice, and really very authentic which makes a change to the usual deep-fried everything that many places serve up. Chicken in cashew nuts was one of the best I've ever tasted, and the Pad Thai is also very tasty.

Asashi on tap which is great to have with the meal! Staff are also very friendly :-)

All in all a real asset to this area, and we will be back!

“Great Thai food on BPC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

During a recent Brighton Pub Crawl we had arranged for 10 Thai meals to be ready at 21:30. We arrived at the Caxton Arms (a delightful pub in a nice "backwater" in the centre of Brighton) and everything was ready. The food was authentic Thai dishes which were all excellent. Everything was served hot and on time.
The pub is a Shepherds and Neames selling amongst others, draught Whitstable Bay and for the lager drinkers - Oranjeboom.
In all, a great little pub, friendly hosts, good food and drink!
