The perfect Sunday Roast. Succulent Pork belly, great selection of veg, Yorkie, stuffing and 3 delicious roasties. Nice touch that the gravy matched the meat selection.

I've always lived in Brighton but never really been to this pub before. We were greeted by some friendly staff and a great selection of beer (both ale and craft!) to choose from. There was a busy but comfortable atmosphere for a Saturday evening and...More

Lovely to meet Ryan and feel his enthusiasm for this amazing pub and how to inject some pizazz into the place. A new Sunday roast is a fine place to start and the delivery was strong. Good value at £12. Excellent bountiful gravy, extra veg...More
