Probably the coolest place in Brighton. Very good local and UK range with some great imported additions lie GI bourbon county, Mikkeller spont series and some barrel aged funky stars etc. Cask selection is mainly them with locals and they have nice additions of the likes of Brew by numbers, Burning Sky and Camden. Good selection of stuff outside of beer as well. Service is solid and efficient. A must visit place when down here

First drank in here back in 92/93 time and have paid a visit whenever in Brighton over the years, most recently in May ’11. Dark Star tap with guests. Always well kept and always good service, a proper beer crowd. Also dropped on a winter beer fest here in Dec ’02 - not sure how regular these are. In Brighton = visit!

Great beach beer bar. Four taps of Dark Star; friendly wait staff willing to give samples, knowledgable on the beer. Good real cider choices too

One of my favourite Brighton Pubs. Why? a good atmosphere and a traditional old pub feel made all the merrier by a good selection of Local Ales and a huge selection of Bottled wonders from Belgium, Germany, The states and beyond. Get there early if you want a table as this place is always lively by about 6pm.
