“Great little pub.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

I am happy to say that I can now call this gem of a Pub my local. This is why I like it: No TVs showing sports. No friut machines. The best bangers and mash in town. No loud music. Its right next to my flat..boom.
Enjoy.

“Such a cool pub, can't wait to go back to try the food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Went for drinks on Friday night. Such a great buzz around. Tables inside and outside available. Great beer selection. The menu looks great, and there are board games to pick up. Lovely place to meet friends or even a first date game of Jenga. Love it, a new brighton fave!

“Best bangers n mash”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I just love mash...and boy did this pub have mash!!! The texture and flavour was awesome! The bangers weren't bad either and the gravy too! Worth every step I took to walk from my B&B.

“Best Sausage n' Mash - ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

I've been here loads before for drinks but had never eaten here - only question I have for myself now is why not? The mix and match sausage, mash and gravy combo is a great idea and not only that but the food is outstanding. Excellent quality sausages, great mash and the gravy just tops it - all this for under a tenner, I think you'd be pushed to find something in Brighton better.
