We were just calling in for a drink. This pub has a nice atmosphere and seems to be very popular. Plenty of seating inside and out. Nice to sit and watch the world go by. Not particularly clean in places, we sat at a table...More

Always pay this pub a visit when I am in Brighton, good range of beers, friendly staff and good food. I enjoy relaxing in the outside area with a nice cold beer on a warm summer's day.

Stopped here and had a beer. Inside is lovely, complete with an old etched glass telephone booth. (Shame it was full of mops and cleaning stuff)

A great pub in the heart of The Lanes that is well worth a visit.Pop in for a choice of great beers and lagers on draught, and also for really good pub grub. Great atmosphere and friendly staff, and all at sensible prices.

We went here to meet some friends at the pub. On arrival of the tavern, we were approached by a abnocious bouncer on a power trip who had sexist, ageism and unfair rules. Awful customer service, never returning. 0 starts

Been many times on a Fri night. Good live band on Fri nights from 10pm which has everyone dancing. Usually an older crowd and gets very busy. Good food. Recommend 2 for 1 fish and chips (£12) on Tuesdays after 5pm.

The courtyard is certainly accessible but I think it would be a problem entering from the bar. The gents toilet is off the courtyard but I am not sure that it would be suitable for a wheelchair. Hope this helps and enjoy... More
