Popped in on the off chance early Saturday evening. Immediate impression was of a friendly buzzy place with lots of people eating and drinking. We went upstairs and managed to get a table. The menu was great and specials boards clearly showing more delights. The waiting staff were prompt and courteous happy to answer questions about the food. We all... More

I heard several times that they serve great, food. I made an effort to book a table and so excited. Mind you, It's an English pub but best Thai food I ever had in Brighton... I've visited few fancy Thai restaurant in Brighton but the food not even close. I've spoken to the Chef (his Thai) very friendly and humble........ More

Ate here with work friends on a Friday night on the recommendation of one of them. Thai food served upstairs. Small cozy pub downstairs. Perfect. Food was delicious. Highly recommend. Reasonably priced. Friendly service. Looks as if pub being bought by new owner so all will change as going to be turned into a British pub selling craft beers. If... More

The first thing you notice is the large collection of chamber pots hanging from, of all places, the ceiling of the pub The Pond. Small lunch menu but good with a lively Thai chef with a personality! I ate downstairs in the small intimate pub which is up for sale! The Thai restaurant is upstairs but you can eat downstairs... More

Visited this place on Friday lunch time with my sister for the first time- was really excited to try their £6.95 deal: a starter and a main course served mon-sat 12-3pm and it was great value. We both ordered a drink and the deal and the whole thing came to under £20! The food was great, authentic and delicious and... More

Yes a lovely little pub that's quirkilly adorned with chamber pots. Very friendly bar maid and a good variety of music played. There's also a nice outside seating area.

We have been coming here for years. Food consistently top notch. V small so worth booking a table. Good for couples or medium sized groups.

This is a really lovely pub and the food is amazing. I wasn't expecting it to be so good, as nothing about the restaurant is authentically Thai but it was absolutely delicious - and so reasonably priced! I have been told that they also have a lunch menu, that is of even better value. The food was fresh and authentic... More

Stopped for lunch as love Thai food & was intrigued by a pub with a Thai restaurant combined and was reasonable at only £6-95 for a 2 course set lunch. Thai food excellent green & red chicken curry really authentic, starter was nice but average but what can you expect for the price. Pub was expensive, barmaid lacked and kind... More

The Thai food in the restaurant upstairs is excellent quality, and the prices are very reasonable. Whenever I eat here, I tend to go for the specials, as they are usually very special. The main part of the pub lacks a bit of atmosphere and is generally uninspiring - it's one of the few pubs in Brighton I frequent that... More
