We stopped in here on a busy Saturday night but left a little underwhelmed. The meal was ok but had clearly been prepared through a fryer or microwave. This was disappointing. The toilets were also grim. But the staff were sound and the pub itself...More

After seeing the reviews I thought I should say that we were actually quite disappointed with the food; it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly good either. Pretty average all in all, but rather friendly staff.

However popular the North Laine becomes, the heart of Brighton will always remain The Lanes themselves. There are plenty of pubs among the twisting narrow streets, but none is as well known as the Bath Arms, which enjoys a reputation among tourists and locals alike as THE pub of The Lanes.
