What a great find in Kemp Town! A cosy corner pub brewing their own beer! Such a homely feel with great live music and a friendly atmosphere from the bar staff and other punters! Crackin place for a relaxing pint or vino! 🍺

We’d been here once before, a couple of years ago and were desperate to find it again. It’s small , cosy and warm with friendly locals and a nice line up of beers. They even make their own !( delicious btw). Go!
