I love this pub, first of all it’s a proper pub rather than a bar, with a fantastic selection from all my favourite English breweries - Dark Star of course, but also Thornbridge, Brodies, Magic Rock, Kernel etc... Perfectly kept cask beers, you’ll never taste a more delicious pint of Hophead, and a good selection of bottles and Keg (although to be honest the cask beer is good enough that I do’t tend to delve further...). Friendly, lively, close to the station, perfect!

Maybe I just came here on a bad day, but the first thing that hit me when I went in was the smell - like a dodgy charity shop with a damp dog in it. Light wood furniture. Undoubtedly has a good selection of cask ales. Patrons tend to crowd the bar rather than take their beers away, making it difficult to get served. Service was fine. It gets marked up for beer selection.

2014 Update - The beer range has improved again in here with more guests, craft kegs and range of styles. Undoubtedly still the best in Brighton for me.
2012 review 82. One of the great brewery taps. Fantastic atmosphere, almost a country pub in town. Good range of beers mostly from Dark Star itself. Worth a few hours of anybody’s time.

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!
