A hidden gem on the outskirts of brighton town centre. The roast is great - well cooked beef, pork and turkey served with help yourself potatoes and all the trimmings - for a tenner! You'll need to book, it was very busy and for good reason! We'll be back! The cinnamon waffles for dessert deserve a mention as they were... More

The menu offers sirlion or ribeye... More

We stopped in on the way to Brighton after checking TA. The staff were very friendly and the food fantastic, we had chicken Satay burger and a beef, chorizo and red pepper pie, both were absolutely delicious, and all were freshly made. Prices were good too, £24 for three meals. Would definitely visit again.
