“Tasty home made pub food you'll come back again for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

We ended up staying on at this lovely little pub long after we got hungry as we decided to try their fajitas off the menu. A fair sized portion of honest tasty food that left me really satisfied. The spices were delicately balanced and it was clear that the ingredients were all fresh and this was prepared to order. I've also eaten their burgers before that I'd also recommend without question.

Great pub, wonderful friendly smiley service and top grub. One of my favourites.

“Hidden gem perfect for relaxing with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Hidden from the main thoroughfare we liked the Mucky Duck the instant we walked in. Friendly staff, eclectic music and a great range of beers.

Amazingly for such a small place it managed to have different areas such as the sofa area, a games area (Connect 4, Guess Who etc) a great bar area and a corner for the DJ to set up. It has a really cool unpretentious vibe about it and the age range went from student to groovy grandad.

Went there both nights our party of two couples stayed in Brighton and both nights were different but equally enjoyable, will be certain to pop in next time we are in town as we are certain to get a decent pint and some interesting music. Oh, and you must try the food! Fantastic quality and value.

As you have probably worked out, of the 10 - 15 pubs we visited in Kemp Town and the Lanes over the weekend this one was by far our favourite.
