The Geese blew me right off my high horse and converted me to a Bangers and Mash sort of girl. It... More

Friendly pub whether you are dining or just having a drink. Specialises in 10 types of sausages, 7 types of mash and several choices of gravy. GF and Vegan also catered for. Bar staff are excellent and beer is well kept. Good mix of students, locals and visitors.

We were both thoroughly impressed by the wide range of options, especially as my friend is vegetarian.

really great choice of bangers and mash and the ones i have tasted are great. Bit much to pay for peas separately but if you go on weds its 2 for £12 meals so much better value great food, would recommend for any sausage and mash lovers

One of my favourite meals is bangers and mash. Been in the Brighton area two years and somehow missed.... the Geese - Bangers and Mash Pub. It is tucked away, but really.
