I loved eating in this lovely establishment. It's kitsch, great music, cocktails and a wonderful host. Definitely visit here when I'm back in Brighton.

We arrived around 1 oclock on a Friday and the place was dead. We were the first customers. The place was very cold. Having been here many times in the past I had raved about it to my husband as it used to be so busy and buzzy. With the hopes it would fill up (the Landlord said it was... More

This establishment is OK if you are happy to be greeted by an friendly barman who serves your drink in a plastic glass and sayes thats all he has on a day when there are only five people in. The drinks are not that reasonablt priced either.

We've been coming to Brighton for years but only came across this place the other day - what a find! The interior looks like vintage 40s/50s and is worth a visit alone. Good selection of beers, including a few nice real ales, and the menu is a varied mix of the usual pub fare and some nice Italian dishes. Staff... More
