We visited the PoW and rented their Karaoke room in the basement. And it was great! We were a group of 12 guys and were made very welcome by the landlord and locals. They really looked after us and we couldn't be more happy. Much much cheaper than a local Karaoke bar. Ideal for a stag group that want to... More

The Prince of Wales - Shepherd Neame is a pub located in the city center, next to the bus stop. Decoration is classical, nothing metal or cyber feel. It suits a group of people drowning in live music (not loud to break your ear drum), talking with folks nearby, tasting the essence of beer, enjoying typical English snack or English... More

I visited this venue for Sunday lunch, and hosts were very friendly upon arrival and made me very welcome. When my roast beef dinner arrived, I could not believe the portion size, and I was definitely beaten on this occasion. The food was excellent, and I will look forward to visiting this pub again in the future.

We love coming here when we take the train in to Brighton. The staff are always friendly and the beer is always great. Being the pub is quite small your only issues sometimes is getting a table. We tend to plan our visit when we know there will be some available.

Stopped here for a drink and some lunch with a friend as we were visiting the city for the day. The lady behind the bar was very friendly and our lunch was surprisingly good and nicely presented. The décor/furnishings and atmosphere in the place left a lot to be desired though, well worn doesn't even begin to describe it. It... More

My friends and I got the worst treatment in this pub. We heard about the place through trip advisor and we have it a shot, as we got in the euro game was playing on the TV. We were 5 people and only two of us ordered drinks, the manager came to us saying "if you aren't ordering anything else... More

'Timing is everything' ...and this incident was untimely.... All the staff and customers alike pride ourselves in being welcoming, accommodating and friendly to all visitors, which I feel sure is borne out by the good response we generally receive from TripAdvisor guests. We had just settled our Sky Sports subscription at over £1200 per month and were discussing the value... More

Staying locally on a drizzly Monday night, we ventured out to find a reasonably close non city centre pub. This was our first stop, which had a very traditional interior, pictures all over the wall, and a fairly eclectic set of probably regulars waiting for the Monday night karaoke. A fairly typical menu was available and great news they served... More

If you want a pint ( or two) in a lovely snug pub, a great plateful of fabulously tantalising food all at affordable prices, look no further! A great find in an otherwise busy Brighton. The staff are very friendly and 'service with a smile' is in great evidence here. Don't miss out on this pub. We are glad we... More

Not eaten here, but it's a cracking place to sink a few jars on a night out. There's not a wide array of draft beers to choose from because the bar is so small, so lager drinkers will need to get used to "Oranjeboom" (that I am yet to see served anywhere else in the UK). You can normally find... More

Highly recommend this venue for food. We had Roast Lamb on Sunday. Meat was so tender and was pleased with the selection of vegetables, different to the normal selection. Very impressed with the rather large Yorkshire pudding, an achievement if you finish it. Welcoming service and will return on next trip.
