We enjoyed our roast lunch here today but the kitchen was obviously stretched and the service for our main course (45 mins) and pudding (30 mins) was very slow. We did find the meat a bit tough and one pudding order was wrong but the sticky toffee with salted butterscotch was delicious.

Mighty impressive burger. Simple burger topped up with smokey cheddar, and as for the thickly sliced gerkins, now we are talking! No need to comment on the ale selection, reputation is everything. Friday fish and chips also excellent, but sooo many chips, too many for even I as a fries fiend.

I've always lived in Brighton but never really been to this pub before. We were greeted by some friendly staff and a great selection of beer (both ale and craft!) to choose from. There was a busy but comfortable atmosphere for a Saturday evening and was surprised by some great live music! The food was great and the staff told... More

Lovely to meet Ryan and feel his enthusiasm for this amazing pub and how to inject some pizazz into the place. A new Sunday roast is a fine place to start and the delivery was strong. Good value at £12. Excellent bountiful gravy, extra veg to share in additional to the full bowls initially presented. The chicken portion was a... More

We heard about the new chef had a bit of pedigree. We weren't disappointed absolutely cracking Sunday lunch with good music and warm and friendly atmosphere. Will be definitely returning

Thai food off again. Not sure what the problem is.. but the chef seems to come in when she fancies. A lot of trade being turned away. Shame.. when it's on its good. But it's a shocking way to treat your punters. Maybe time for a new food deal

I have been to this pub a few times now to drink beer, mostly during the week at night, and love it. The staff is always kind and courteous, and provide us with a friendly environment. They have various types of beers at reasonable prices. It's clean, intimate and it's got a lovely decoration. One of my favourites in Brighton.

Popped in for a cheeky one after work. Normally have a great selection of ales on. I was pushed for time as I needed to get home & do bedtime. Only had one member of staff on & half a dozen people waiting. I gave up after ten mins and left thirsty.

After we went for a roast with my sister out law a year ago we were a bit hesitant to try their Thai. (roast beef was like sandwich beef) We needn't have worried though. Thai was thicker than usual (Massaman being my favourite) but as tasty as others we have tried elsewhere. Have recommended to friends.

This is a pub that sells good food. We went on a Sunday so the whole place was packed out. The serving staff, whilst very competent, were run off their feet and so food was very slow to arrive. However, it was worth the wait as the quality of the food (mainly Sunday roasts) was very good. The portions are... More
