I think it's important to support local businesses and this is our local pub, as we hadn't tried the food recently we thought we would give the roast a try. I checked online and the choice seemed good so, having spent the day working, we lined up the Park View Sunday Roast. On arrival the bar staff were pleasant, although... More

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff however food was terrible. We won't come again to eat. Over priced and taste bad.

Friendly team, uncomplicated food. This is a local for one of my friends so we tend to meet here every two weeks and are yet to be disappointed. Menu is varied and very accommodating for snacks and sharing platters. The manager is very welcoming and purposely comes over to acknowledge us everytime. Very highly recommended.

This is a great local pub. Good atmosphere, tasty food and drink and the staff are always welcoming and friendly too. Also a good beer garden which is nice in the warmer months. Today we tried the new menu which was lovely, the game cobbler was particularly delicious!

This is our local and so I feel a bit loyal. The decor is good, and comfortable. The beer garden large and sunny. Dogs are welcome. Great selection of beers etc. However, the chefs come and go. The menu has been variable over the last few years and it's a bit hit and miss if I'm honest. Tonight the menu... More

Popped in here after work early evening for drinks and food on a lovely sunny evening. We ordered food at the bar and took our drinks outside and selected a table. The garden ambience is quite nice and we were lucky to select a table on a lowered quiet position. Food arrived about 15 mins later. This is where my... More

Hi HungryJohn2016, I am so sorry that you found the menu descriptions confusing and disappointing. We are pub that prides on serving fresh, quality ingredients, with a bit of a twist, bringing traditional meals into the 21st Century. I assure you we do not mean to confuse our Guests, in fact it does state on the menu that the ham... More

Description
A Brighton pub you'll never be bored of.Just a stone's throw from Preston Park, you'll find a pub that's cosmopolitan Brighton at its best. Alongside our impressive range of speciality drinks and pub food at The Park View, you'll find a line-up of interesting activities throughout the week, such as Tai Chi Mat and the odd live band too, with the Peruvian nose flute making an occasional appearance.
