Have been here a few times. Had a couple of good meals and a couple of woeful ones. When they get it right its fabulous. We went there a while back with our young son. As the waitress took our order she surely spotted the jar of baby food, bowl and spoon on the table. Shortly before our order was... More

I have eaten here a few times. It is okay. Unfortunately the ability to have a conversation is drowned out my the volume of the music. Don't know why, it is not a night club!! Just a pub.

I booked a surprise birthday lunch for my wife's birthday in November for 20 people and invited more anticipating that not everyone would be able to come. This backfired a bit and the final number was more like 32! The Assistant Manager, Kim, was fantastic in terms of accommodating our ever increasing numbers, even changing the table layout on the...

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

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!

Huw118, General Manager at The Park View, responded to this review

Hi kskezz, I see you tried one of our new dishes, the game cobbler is a staff favourite too. Perfect for the cold nights we're having lately! We'll be adding some new tasty dishes over the next few weeks, so make sure to pop back and check the menu out. To keep up to date give us a like on... More

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.
