Finally, after years of trying, we have managed to get a beer in here. Since the old Cask pub and kitchen closed we have visited Brighton 3 times before and due to a combination of refurbishment, odd opening hours and private functions not once have we got in, but now on a quiet Easter Saturday afternoon we entered the hallowed ground. There is a pleasant, laid back vibe, plenty of seating and terrific bar staff, willing to help with your choices. The beer range is big, as you would expect, with plenty of variety. Glad we made it this time and may have more luck in the future.

Visited on a Saturday evening in November 2015. A nice CBC, quite a small place with seating in small rooms around the bar and an upstairs area. Managed to get a table as it was fairly busy this was a good achievement. Great range of beer on as youíd expect from a CBC venue. Ilkley featured on the hand pulls. Could do with keeping those with beer on as quite a few turned around but still a healthy sign. Like the place and would definitely pop in if in the area.

Nice CBC, like the atmosphere a lot. Not too busy on a Sat afternoon, good service, some nice gems on cask, but as always for CBCs, a bit pricy.

Basically all Craft Beer Co.ís are good, and this one is no exception. Good selection, fine staff, enough places to sit. Certainly worth visiting when in Brighton.

In a quiet location in Brighton, dodgy mustard coloured walls, nice staff, standard Craft Beer Co selection (which is pretty excellent, really) and the bottles are a lot cheaper than in London. Good place, but the least impressive CBC Iíve been in so far.

Reminiscent of CBC Islington I think. Lots of open seating and tables. Great bottle selection especially focused on local London stuff like Kernel, Partizan and BBN. About 7 or so cask taps and another 18 taps. Not a great deal of variation like other visits to other CBCís. Taps seem to be dominated buy Kernel, Westbrook, Omnipollo and Amager which Iíve pretty much all had on past visits. And a fair few taps not running tonight. I like the coming soon sign though. And the cheese fridge looks epic which the others Craftís definitely donít have. A good addition indeed

Great place, modern clean, no nonsence interior, big L shaped bar, with a lot of seating area, old mantelpiece in place. Very service minded personell behind the bar at my visit, good mix of visitors, as well of beers. A must if in Brighton.

Went here on Friday 16th and again on Saturday 17th November 2012. Initially I thought it was a little lacking in the atmosphere stakes however we sat for probably the best part of a couple of hours on each occasion and the noticed the place filling with a great cross section of people, my initial scepticism on atmosphere was quickly blown out of the water. In fact we really got to like this bar, ok so it is very, very different from the Evening Star but then I wouldnít want it to be like that, but the staff were all excellent, very friendly and happy to offer advice. You sort of enter from what I would describe as the side of the pub (the pub is situated on a corner) immediately in front is the bar, a typical L shape and you are at the shorter part, to the left there is a raised section of seating, to your right a large, long table and in front and to the right is more seating. The choice was as expected very impressive with some 8-10 casks (I think) and a similar number if not more kegs. There was a good showing from Magic Rock on both days with NZ hop versions of two of their beers, Thornbridge and Marble also on cask, with Mikkeller cutting a heavy presence on the kegs. Beer quality was as expected, very, very good. This pub seems to have found itís market and seems to be doing very well and a welcome addition to the Brighton scene, now if only Craft would do something similar in Oxford then I wouldnít have to spend so many weekends traveling to good pubs up and down the country.

Went on 2 consecutive days to have a couple of beers. On day 1 there was a young man serving - highly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He was also very keen to let customers know what they were drinking. The second night there were a couple of ladies serving - far less friendly and less helpful. Canít complain about the beer though; it was a pleasure to have several from the range of pull ups [9 in the bar] and pressurised draughts, about a dozen of proper craft beers. Best UK pub Iíve been to outside of London for ages.
