Our sixth and final pub of the day/early evening. Good range of Harveys beers on cask. My pint of Harveys - Old Ale was in good nick and a second would have been supped had it not necessary to make the short walk back to the station for the train home. Visited early evening 31.3.15

Lord Nelson is the Harvey’s outpost in central Brighton. It is located but a couple of minutes away from the train station down Trafalgar Road. Has a proper local boozer feel to it. 6 Harvey’s beers on cask usually as well a small range of their bottles. Beer is in good condition and the staff know them well. Food is solid and rather cheap, so this makes for a solid lunch stop. I tend to swing past every time I hit Brighton to get my Harveys fix. Decent.

Big, bustling, popular Harvey’s pub in the North Laines area of town. Just the Harveys beers and seasonals on, but well kept and the staff knew all about them to make suggestions. The bottled beers are kept out the back, so you have to ask. Not cheap, but very few places in Brighton are. Good place to be.

Good freindly community pub, an easy walk from the station. Two rooms and plenty of character. A bit shabby but a refurb would probably leave it soulless. A good range of Harvey’s beers, if you don’t like Harvey’s don’t bother.

We popped in here on Saturday 17th November 2012. It is a slightly tired, dark, pub however to be fair Arsenal were playing Tottenham and they had it on the TV in the bar off to the left so maybe curtains were drawn as well adding to the gloominess. We went to the bar off to the right which seemed to link onto a further room stretching some considerable way back. The beers were from the Harveys range, both of those that we had (forgotten the names) were fine if somewhat unexciting. The service and general atmosphere was similar, fine, reasonably friendly but also a bit functional. I just felt that the place needs a bit of spark, maybe a sympathetic re-fit, it could and should do very well but it gives the air of being just satisfied with its lot and resistant to change. Fine enough but I guess you could pick 10-15 pubs in Brighton that are much better than this without any effort at all.

A cosy old fashioned pub with a good selection of Ales and almost always a good Dark on. Classic Football and cricket memorabilia adorn the walls which make for interesting reading. The back room is large and great for a gathering and there is also a nice smoking area out the back.

Slightly scruffy place near the station with lots of character. Decent cider on handpump, plus pretty much all the Harvey’s stuff you could want. Visited on quiz night (Tuesday), but didn’t partake.

Haha, what a joint. I went in for a pint just to chek it out after visiting trafalgar Wines since its very close. I couldnt first make out if it was open or not, but when I pushed a door it opened and...voila! Two small shabby rooms with a bar between them. Very old and dodgy like you would fantasize such an old workingmans bar to be. When I asked about their beers the young girl in the bar said "we’re a Harveys bar" and then didnt really seem too sure about which beers they had on bottle and so. She even pointed to a shelf with old dusty vintage bottles when I asked about their bottled beers. A bunch of "men" sat at the bar and watched a cricket match on a projector screen and suddenly one guy farted really loud. The other guys yelled at him. "We heard that James! Thats disgusting!" Hahaha, classy.

Visited here during the weekend of the Brighton Half Marathon. The selection is alright, five or so Harveys ales and a handful of other stuff. The condition of the beers was decent. The setting is quite cozy with a pretty nice, wrap-around bar and a selection of large, kitchen tables as well as smaller tables. There’s also a TV. No real qualms. When one conjures up an image of a British Pub I think they approximate a place like this. Not the best pub in Brighton, but worth checking out I suppose.

Hard to recommend a place where a female server came up to my wife, asked her what she was doing, then literally laughed in her face when she said she was knitting. Awesome service, there. She then went and laughingly told another server and pointed at us... stupid bitch. Thankfully he was not as classless as his colleague and just shrugged.
