If you like a varied selection of beers then this bar will be good for you. It's good value and lots of choice but the beers I tried I wasn't amazed by. Definitely for big ale fans.

We had an hour to kill while we were in this area of Brighton and this place was the closest place that did food. I was the only woman in there but it was worth it as the food was fantastic and the beers were fantastic! Food wise I had a cheese burger and my partner had a pork burger... More

We booked the gold package beer tasting experience for 10 of us on a stag do. They did not disappoint. It started a little bit later than booked but that couldn't be helped. Great selection of beers which is personalised to each group. The host was amazing, fun, and knowledgeable. The highlight of the stag do for me. Thanks for... More

We have been to this pub quite a few times but when we went recently all of the staff were busy looking at the ceiling or checking their nails so it was difficult to get served. Then my daughter asked for a 175ml glass of house white wine. They charged £5.50! When she queried this, she was told it was... More

Quiet Sunday night, good (small-ish) selection of beers on tap and the usual bottled offerings. Friendly staff and other punters. Burgers on the menu, but get there before kitchen closes (makes sense really).

Nicely presented and a good choice of beers, visited on a Friday evening and it was busy with a mixed crowd. Barstow were happy for me try a little of a couple of beers in order to find one I would enjoy. Very helpful staff and a nice venue. If you like beer then its well worth a visit.

Our boardgame club uses the upstairs space here every Wednesday and the staff are very accommodating friendly people. The burgers are amazing and they have a great selection of fancy sauces to go with them. There is a good variety of soft drinks.

Another hidden gem. Top beers that are full of flavour. Good burgers and other bar foods. Always enjoy a visit or many to this pub, well worth finding

Came here with the fiancé one Sunday for a roast. The Beer Geek Fiancé ordered me a Lambic, and I ordered a Duck roast. Lovely presentation, classic plating peas + broccoli contrast with carrots + potatoes, all on top of the gravy. Yorkshire pudding was ok. The Duck, however, was dry and overcooked, not any shades of pink visible, what... More
