One of the best roasts in brighton (alongside lion and lobster and craft beer). Cute pub, gets pretty busy!

Plenty of decent ales available, not over priced. Plenty of seating although some not masses of space in some areas. Pleasant place inside - looks how a pub should look. Seems fairly popular for food too - gets busy but worth a trip for sure

Good potions, no pretense of finesse a real if somewhat unrestored pub, not a bad thing in Brighton. The service was slow but genuine and my vegetarian friend had a good roast option, and dogs are welcome.
