We assembled for preparing wedding drinks. There was a large crowd. The staff were welcoming and efficient. Looking at the meals being served we will be returning to eat another day. A good pub. Friendly and spacious.

I have hired The Park View room downstairs for my 50th Birthday Party. There were 70 people invited. The buffet menu was of a very high standard, the atmosphere very relaxed and the service was great. Kimmy and Hew did all in their power to make the event go smoothly. They accommodated every single request and gave access to the... More

Very welcoming pub situated perfectly between central Brighton and preston park. The pub is surrounded by beautiful trees with a very large sunny beer garden. They love dogs inside and out. The food is great pub food but it could be improved on.

Okay pub close to home, quite clean and well decorated. Only problem is that different bartenders charge you diffrent things for drinks I don't know if it's them pocketing the extra money or staff don't know the prices. Charged £2.50 on a Monday night for a coke then the next week charged £1 on a Monday. Staff just pour your... More

Hi Alfy, I have sent you a message to get a little more information on your comments. Different sizes of Pepsi is charged at different prices, so this may be your confusion. All of the staff are friendly, and are more than happy to strike up a conversation with you if the situation arises. Cheers Huw More

Arrived in Brighton for a short family break and needed somewhere close for a quick meal. Service was friendly but food was quite ordinary and not cheap.

Great location but don't bother trying to eat. It always seems a bit too much for the staff to serve you. We visit the Park View quite regularly due to its location to Preston Park and they always seem to struggle with service. The food is average but OK if you are looking for a quick bit, it's just overpriced... More

I have visited the Park View twice in a week to eat and drink. The beer is well kept and there is a good variety too. The red wines are averagely good. The food selection does not change much, which must be depressing for the chef. This pub is part of the Mitchell's and Butler's chain, which sits in the... More

Nice food great choice of craft beers. This is an ideal place for late summer meals out on the terrace, and a stop off before gay pride. It used to be a spit and sawdust type of place then went gastro and craft. It is a bit of a hidden gem. I normally would never have gone in here due... More

Description
A Brighton pub you'll never be bored of.Just a stone's throw from Preston Park, you'll find a pub that's cosmopolitan Brighton at its best. Alongside our impressive range of speciality drinks and pub food at The Park View, you'll find a line-up of interesting activities throughout the week, such as Tai Chi Mat and the odd live band too, with the Peruvian nose flute making an occasional appearance.
